I was so excited when I heard about the Sam's icing on here! I love their icing. I HATE making buttercream and posted here about my desperation since it never seemed to turn out right. I raced straight to Sams and bought the huge bucket for about $26-28 (can't remember exactly, but broke down to a $1 a pound). Well, let me just say that for this hobby decorator this stuff is the BOMB!! Smooth, creamy, yummy and takes color so easily. I did have some at top of bucket get a little firm but I put it in my KA with a little corn syrup and it softened up and did just fine. It is incredible how many "home" cakes it has iced so far. No more making the stuff for me icon_biggrin.gif .

All my stuff is done with Sam's icing. It's Dawn's But-R-Cream. I actually buy a 45lb case. It's the icing base and I like the way it tastes, IMO even better than the already mixed tub. I just add vanilla extract and butter extract to get a yummy flavor and then add water until it's the consistency I like. I'm in Canada so my Sam's just closed and I bought all 5 cases they had left. It lasts for months but I go through it pretty quick.

The bakery manager told me that local wholesale food companies carry it so I'll be checking with them when my stock runs out.

So how is the taste of the Sam's buttercream? I use the Wilton Buttercream and get rave reviews. Does the taste compare?

Is is the same icing they use at Walmart on their cupcakes, etc? I really don't like the taste of that at all.

Anyone?

Not sure about Walmart but I get nothing but rave reviews on my icing. I do add the vanilla and butter extracts though to give it extra flavor.

If you are looking for an excellent pre-made icing, you should check out Dixie's Icing. She sells a sample pack so you can decide which type of icing you like before buying a large tub. I use her original almond-vanilla flavor and her chocolate. It keeps for 6 months without refrigeration, 1 year if you refrigerate. It's a whipped buttercream....and it is the yummiest icing ever. No need to thin it or thicken it for different decorating needs. The cost analysis she did a couple years ago shows it costs about $1 more per cake than making your own.

alexandrabill,

I can't believe how good Dixie's is! I've been using it for about 14 years now, and would never use anything else. I know I am biased because she taught me cake decorating, and is such a super person. But truthfully, I've never tasted icing better than hers. It was a no-brainer for me...why spend all that time and effort making my own when hers is so-o-o superior! Maybe if I LIKED making icing.....

Does Dixie's or Sam's crust? Or is it a non-crusting buttercream.


Thanks

The bucket is $31.18 at my Sam's in TX. I really like it. Saves me the trouble of making icinging myself. I've used it on the lavendar and white birthday cake with the roses, 60 cake and the last 4 cakes in my gallery.

Dixie's does not crust (great for not clogging small tips). I find that it is easy to smooth, and even easier to decorate with. LOVE it!

I just may have to try the sample of Dixie's. I am nervous about not having the crusting buttercream. I have only used the Viva method for my cakes and I'm worried I wouldn't be able to get it smooth enough. But I am tired of the cracking of my icing on my sheet cakes.

Has anyone compared the taste of Dixie's to Sam's buttercream?
