i'm pretty sure it's not available online, since its in a semi frozen form sold in a paper milk carton. I did look and wasnt able to find my supplier outside mich, ohio, ill, ind area.

I get mine at gordon foods which here is like a restaurant supply, but open to the public.

you can try walmart or sams, its the whipped icing that they use. Here in michigan they will sell it to you.

I am sure the others will add to this.

No, it does not freeze solid. Not in my experience anyway.

Hi to my neighbors! I am in MI also ( right by metro airport)

Bettercreme is so good! It is all I use now, I have mixed it with jam, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, I was in a pinch for some chocolate mousse(sp) and I added some powdered nesquick to it, it was so good! (and it passed for mousse!)
Don't take for granted what you have today, it may be gone tomorrow! Rest in Peace Momma! 9/24/49 to 11/18/09

You want a super easy mousse?? This ROCKS... put 2 cups of bettercreme in your mixer bowl, add half a cup of milk, and one (4 serving) package of any flavor of pudding, whip until fluffy. (Only takes a minute!) This is so amazingly yummy!!! And it can be used to fill and ice cupcakes or cakes too! Mmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

You probably have a price chopper near you somewhere, That is the only place I have found near here that will sell it to you out of the bakery. Just call and ask for the bakery manager and they have sold it to me at cost. And Hi Neighbor, I am right off 146 in Ma so we aren't too far. LOL.

Anybody know where I can get it in Iowa? I have a Sam's club here, but they don't have a bakery...just an area where baked goods are sold, but no actual bakery. There's a Walmart, but not a big one. I really want to get this b/c it's the icing most requested in the past when ordering grocery store cakes. HELP!

Yes, it does hold up in the heat- not for too too long though, in the sense i work with it very comfortably in a hot, restuarant kitchen without worrying that it will go flat on me. Nonetheless, it tastes best when chilled.
You can color it but it takes on light, pastels best.

You could add fondant decorations, but I wonder how that will look? If you have a plan, go for it.

Someone else had asked, does it freeze? YES! I whip a large batch and freeze if I am not going to use it for 1 week, which is what it lasts in the cooler. You can also freeze the liquid in small batches and whip what you need when you need it.

It can stand up to moderate heat, but not excessive. You can add colors with no problem, but it will not make dark or bright colors. You're going to have more pastels and light colors. It is not suggested for use under fondant, maybe if you are just adding a few small details, but not if you are covering the cake.

As for where to get it in Iowa, I get it in Davenport at TPC, not sure where you could find it around Sioux City. I'll have to see if I can figure that out!!

I live in southern WI, and they sell it at UBake in Janesville. Janesville is about 30 minutes from the WI - Illinois boarder. Will it hold up after it's made sitting out, and for how long?
