Not sure what PLU stands for, but it's the label and barcode printed off to be scanned at the registers. We're not able to do anything like that that's not approved through home office.



I emailed Wal-marts home office and heres the generic letter they sent. I even called my local Wal-Mart and they said I had to go thru the home office. such the run around..

I've heard that Costoc's sells really good icing as well. I thought that's what Thanh Thanh used? Either way, I'll be buying my first buckets this week as well! Can't wait!

I guess I should have flavored it more, but I just used it as vanilla under fondant.
I usually use Tami's buttercream which is full of butter and whipping cream and is sooo yummy I could eat it by the spoonful.
Having said all that I agree it is very convenient and nice to work with. If it tasted better I would buy it all the time.

I agree with needing to add more flavor. I am on my third bucket now and my favorite is adding either lemon or creme boquet. Once I whip it up and flavor it a bit in the KA it's just like homemade.

i HATE making frosting! I am so happy to learn that Sams sells it. I also have a Costco in my area so I will have to check and see which one sells it. SO

HOW DO YOU FLAVOR IT???? I have seen people say they flavored theres with almond, or Peppermint. What kind of flavoring do you use and how would you go about adding it?

I spoon as much as I need in my KA bowl and start by adding a couple teaspoons of whatever flavoring I am working with and go from there. I just add my flavoring to taste and mix it up.

I bought my first tub of it last week as well. I added vanilla extract and french vanilla coffee creamer to it and people loved it. This is going to be my standard PS BC from now on because I can't deal with the Crisco issues especially on weekends when I have quite a few cakes. And I'd rather save my butter for my SMBC. As long as people like it, I'm good with it! And it doesn't have to be refrigerated, I saw someone ask that. Only the whipped kind has to be kept cool.

I may just have to try Sam's BC. Would be a lot easier then making my own.

This recipe for Tami's buttercream sounds really good. Is it good to use for decorating? Does it crust well?
