SAM'S CLUB BUTTERCREAM ICING - Page 4

post #46 of 70
i used to be a bakery manager at sam's for 4 years. i just recently left the company about 6 months ago. walmart and sams did not use the same kind of icing when i was there. ours came from the dc and walmarts came from a company called brill. as of now, they might come from the same place...but i am not sure. sams BC is very good. when i buy it, i whipped up with simple syrup to get the holes out of...makes it light and fluffly. their colors are very bitter though. as far as getting the bucket opened, you can buy an actual bucket opener from the bakerskitchen.com

I just purchased the 28lb bucket of the white spread-n-fill but-r-creme frosting from sam's club. I paid $26.56 for it. On the label it says it is manufactured for the super walmart and sam's club. It doesn't need refrigeration, it said the temp. should be between 68 & 80 degrees.

So since Sams Club is affiliated with Wal- Mart do you think its the same icing and also be able to purchase it?

Just to answer your question, probably not. I used to work at the wal-mart bakery and they wouldn't let us sell it!!! But the rules may be different in other areas!! Good Luck

I am loving this post.

When I have wedding cakes, I spend one whole evening whipping up 5-10 batches of icing. The next day I decorate.

I will try this sams club or costco icing.

DO YOU THINK I COULD ADD CREAM CHEESE TO IT. Several people like the cream cheese/buttercream.

I thank you, my mixer thanks you!!
It all started with an idea and some sugar!

One question I forgot to ask them, but I am sure you know. icon_biggrin.gif How do you store the unused portion. Do you refrigerate or do you leave in the original bucket and just leave at room temperature?

I see that the bucket I purchased has a long shelf life...It is good through February of 2008.

Thanks again,

Jeanene



you can leave it at room tempurature. i used to work at sams club, and that icing is really nice to work with. some times we would get bad batches of it though, so beware, ive had buckets that just TEAR up cake. and on humid days, its really nice to use and easy on ur hands. So have fun!

I have never tried Sams frosting so when I was there today I asked for a sample. They were happy to let me try some. It doesn't hurt to ask.

I bought a tub... used a squirt on my sample cakes for a tasting... I personally didn't like the taste (I think it's nasty!) but everyone here gives it such rave reviews, I thought it was just me...

anyway -the bride to be ewww'd and said it tasted just like the nasty stuff she used at the Food Lion she used to work at and if she wanted a cake with grocery store icing, she'd go there... I had to do alot of back peddling.. took her another sample of MY bc.. (she signed the contract so all wasn't lost)

I promptly took back the big ol tub to Sams Club and they gave me a full refund....

add me to the not a fan list!

The lady in the bakery dept. said that was a big no no but she did it and was very kind to me.

Walmart, where I live has been quite nasty when asked about their icing. I asked the lady once if she was having a bad day LOL. She looked at me and said "NOOOO WHY /?????????" I said because you ARENT being very kind to your customers. I just asked a question and you don't have to be rude. She walked away mumbling something....but I can recall thinking I heard her call me a rather disgusting name icon_sad.gif . I hope this isn't everywhere icon_sad.gif



For those of you wondering about where to get the "tool" to open the bucket. You can order a plastic pail opener from www.decopac.com If you have a tax id number you can set up an account online with them but if you dont have a tax id number you can call them and set up a non licenced account where you can order supplies like cake drums, boards, coloring, etc. I just got off the phone setting up my non licenced account and I asked how much the bucket opener was and it is only $6.00. It is a plastic one and the product number is 9792. Also the tips I checked the price on was only .50 cent each. If you order over $75.00 you also get free shipping. I hope this info helps!

I think walmart frosting is nasty tasting. We purchased some cupcakes, just to get the plastic rings on top (hahaha) the cakes was not bad but the frosting made me gag.....no one would eat them!....also someone got me a cake recently..I took the frosting off and replaced it with my own home made.
Also I think the walmarts are filled with rude pepple.....I think they must not treat them very well.thats what I am thinking anyway...they need to get a new job. I hate going there anymore. They have made it so no one is left in business and ya have to go there now! A shame really.

After all, I'm really a decorator, not an icing maker. Isn't that sad??? The baking and icing-making are necessities for the final product, but the decorating is what I love. icon_smile.gif

Have fun with your icing!!!!


What's the "melvira method"?

I cannot bear the thought of using bought BC on my cakes, I guess it is all a matter of preference & what tastes good to you & your customers. I would probably change my mind if I ever tasted one that appealed to me. I am sure there must be some good ones, I just haven't found them.
