Has anyone noticed that they changed the name, and the ingredients are now slightly different? I sent my husband out to get me a bucket last week and he came home with what looked just like the buckets I always buy, but it didn't say 'But-R-Cream' (sp?)....just 'Fill and Spread Icing'. We compared the ingredients on that bucket to those of the bucket of But-R-Cream that was almost empty (I go through this stuff like water!) and there were a few differences. Same product number on the bucket though. I was so afraid to use it because I was doing a tiered cake and didn't want any unexpected surprises but it seemed ok. Same taste....seems to take longer to crust, and a bit more finicky. I had to get another bucket just yesterday and same thing...'Fill and Spread Icing' has replaced the 'But-R-Cream' name. Hmmm...

I am wondering if I can purchase it here in Indiana. How does it seem to hold up in the heat? I don't make a ton of cakes but I can not find Hi ratio shortening without ordering it online and I really don't want to add the extra costs of shipping as this is really a hobby for me. I make a cake or two a month so I really need something that will store well. Has anyone ever checked a GFS Market Place?

Hey fellow Indiana, GFS can order hi ratio. It takes some convincing each time I order it they say they do not carry it. Then they check again and can order. I think it is about 100.00 for 50#

Ya'll have got my interest. I make my own buttercream (1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening) and it is quite time consuming. But, the taste of homemade is so much better. I get many compliments on icing. Anyway, I searched on the Sam's Club website and could not find what ya'll are speaking of. What is the name of product?

What is the correct product name to ask for when I go to Sams to look for the buttercream icing?
I have a 6",8" 10" and 12" heart shaped wedding cake to make. How much frosting do I need?

Here in Nashville, it is called Fill and Spread. It is not on the website but you ask for it at the bakery. I bought a large tub each of the white and chocolate and loved them both. Also, my Sam's sells smaller sizes of the colored icings also. I bought mine in March. It costs about 10 dollars for the smaller size pink icing and around $30 for the very large buckets.

Y'all got me interested in this icing! One question, does it really taste like homemade icing or does is taste processed? The Wilton ready to use icing that you buy in the store is awful and tastes like the plastic container that it comes in. I really like the taste of homemade icing so I just want to make sure it tastes just as good before I pay the money for it. If anyone can tell me what it tastes like, it would be so worth the money!

I bet if you ask, they will give you a spoonful from the buckets they are using themselves in the bakery.... before you buy.

I use SAMs icing for everything now. I do add my own flavors to make it more my own and taste better. Although it's pretty good by it's self. It will do great in high heat. Had an outdoor wedding cake that did fine in partial sun in 90 + degrees!

The taste is very sweet, however most icing is! I really like it, and have never had anyone complain. It just takes me way too long to make it on my own, especially when I have to make enough for more than one cake. You have to go to the bakery and ask someone for it....I always just say I need to buy a large bucket of the but-r-cream icing. They go in the back and get it and then print out a label for it right there. It's 30.56 at my Sams. I have bought the colored icing as well. I bought red once and also black...but the employees seem pretty stingy about selling the colored icing!

Also, for those of you who said you add powdered sugar to it...do you just stir it in or do you put it in the mixer and then add the powdered sugar? The bucket my husband just bought me is TERRIBLE and has given me nothing but headaches for the last two cakes I did. It is much softer than normal and while it crusts just enough to smooth it out, it doesn't really 'set' like it normally does. I hate to waste money because I have about 1/3 of the bucket left, but I may just go get another one and pray it's a better batch! I'll set this one aside and use it just for filling. I'd love to try stiffening it up with ps, but I'm afraid of making it softer in the mixer and also not mixing it thoroughly enough if I do it by hand.

When I stiffen a batch I put it in my kitchen aid. I like to name sure the paddle us toltally covered so to not get air bubbles. To thin it I use corn syrup. I had problems with water and milk.
