Walmart's Whipped Frosting

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I have a customer who specifically requested frosting just like what Walmart uses (their 'whipped' frosting). My business is very small and I typically use IMBC on all my orders, but she is firm that this is what she wants. I've called Walmart trying to get an idea of what it is, but they were really no help. I can buy the frosting at Sam's, but it's in a 5 gallon bucket - WAY too much for just one order. Does anyone have a recipe that is very similar to the whipping frosting at Walmart/Sam's?

does anyone know the shelf life of IMBC? I am nervous to use this as my buttercream recipe for all my cakes because i can't find information on the keeping of this great frosting. How long can a cake sit out with IMBC and how do you store it if you make in large quantities?

I freeze my extra and then bring it to room temp and rewhip. It can sit out for a couple days, I believe. It's not one that has to be refrigerated at all times.

I have not heard of any recipe that comes close to the Rich's Bettercreme (the whipped icing that wal-mart uses) However I have heard that there is a liquid Rich's Bettercreme so you can whip up just what you need to use.

If you do decide to purchase the large bucket though you can take out a small amount that you want to use and freeze the rest. It is good in the freezer for a long time (I am thinking at least a year if not more - but it has been awhile since I have looked into it)

I was curious to see if anyone might have this posted someplace and did a search and found this website. I hope it is ok to post here. Here is the link that shows the recipe someone posted: http://community.tasteofhome.com/forums/t/129545.aspx

Walmart's Whipped Buttercream Icing

2 cups butter
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Place butter in mixing bowl, add 2 cups powdered sugar; mix at low speed to obtain smooth paste. Whip at medium speed, adding the condensed milk until light and fluffy.

Using a very clean bowl and beater, whip the egg whites until stiff while adding the 1/2 cup powdered sugar slowly. Mix this slowly into the above butter mixture. Add vanilla and remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar. This last amount of powdered sugar can be doubled if stiffer icing is desired.

Thank you so much for the information everyone! I'm definitely going to try the recipe. . . maybe I'll let the client do a taste test before her event. Then if she doesn't like it, I'll go ahead and buy the bucket. It's good to know that it will last a long time in the freezer. . . because I'd hate to have to buy that much and only use enough for her cake icon_eek.gif

Thanks again! icon_smile.gif

I worked at wal_mart for 8 months and the whipped they use is rich bettercream, it comes in frozen in buckets 1 gallon or 3 gallon. and its already colored. I use the liquid bettercream from Gordon food service, Its frozen in quart cartons and thaws very fast, I buy it buy the case and keep frozen until I need it. I love to use this, its a non dairy so it can sit out with no worries. and it so smooth to work with, I just got a wedding cake order this week for whipped, the bride liked it because its not so sweet, good luck and post your pics

Do you have to be a member of the Gordon food service store to shop there? I noticed that there is a store in the town about 45 minutes from here but have never been in it. Also, do you mind if I ask how much the liquid bettercreme is there?

Thanks!!

Honestly, I make really good cakes. My cakes are made from scratch using premium ingredients. I am not going to lower my standards trying to emulate Walmart. If a Walmart cake is what they want, they can go to Walmart to get it.

No, I'm sorry I haven't. I should have put that in my first post. One of the grocery stores that used to be in town here years ago used to sell their whipped frosting in quart containers and sometimes my brother would buy some lol. I used to think it tasted so good and wouldn't think anything about just sitting down with a spoon and diving in icon_biggrin.gif .

You don't have to be a member at gordon foods service,If you are friendly with your local grocery store and they get Gordon deliverys, you may ask if they could order you some.

the case here in Indiana is 12 per case $ 45.00 a case they are 32oz cartons ( 2pounds) of liquid and it also comes in choc. too. the vanilla you add nothing and just whipp it up. I love it. I know this sounds expensive but one does a 12x18 sheet cake with all the borders and some to spare. I hope this helps
