LOL, that is funny b/c I HATE Publix butter cream and I think that their cake tastes like cardboard. I know that a lot of people love their cakes but not me...anyhow, sorry, no recipe. You might want to try Indydebi's recipe b/c it is pretty good and I think that it might be more similar to Publix's than the standard Wilton. Plus, it stands up very well to the FL heat and humidity

I could kick myself now because I used to work for Publix and in the bakery, but I never made the butterream, nor did I ever watch. I was young and I guess at the time I didn't really care. I wish I knew now though.....

I live near a publix and do most of my shopping there. I noticed they sell their frosting in containers in the bakery. I bought a very small amount just to test and found it just wasn't good. I could not detect any flavoring and there surely was no butter taste. With a cake underneath, it might have impressed me more, but I can make better frosting. Bull

I agree, to me it just tastes like greasy sugar icon_sad.gif

To locate your own posts, go into your "watched topics" (it's written in white in that purple bar at the top of the screen." However, there's a trick: CC doesn't automatically "watch" a post that you started -oops! Once you post your thread, when you get the message that says "Your post has been made" (or whatever the exact wording is) and it says "click here to return to the forum or click here to see your message" - you MUST go back to your message, and choose "Watch this topic for replies". I know it seems counterintuitive that a post that you started is not automatically watched, but that's just the way it works right now thumbs_up.gif

Really? I never click to watch anything and I get to see all replies to anything I have created or written on. Huh.

That's weird! I always get replies to anything I've posted on, but not to a thread I've originated, unless I've a) gone back and Watched the thread, or b) posted on the thread after my original post.

Good ol' kooky CC icon_biggrin.gif

I worked at Publix for about a year and made the buttercream more than I want to remember! Good news/bad news.

Bad news: The buttercream comes in a mix-- it's like a giant block of almost fondant-like stuff, consistency-wise. You soften it up and then add regular unsalted butter and some water (from a weird water hose machine-- I know that isn't relevant, but that thing always seemed strange to me so I just had to mention it icon_twisted.gif).

Good news: It shouldn't be too hard to replicate, or at least come close to. I read the ingredients for the buttercream mix blocks on more than one occasion to try and pick them apart, and never found anything out of the ordinary. It basically came down to vanilla flavoring, egg whites, and powdered sugar. I've never really tried to replicate the buttercream, but if I recall that really was all those blocks were made of.

If anything I guess there'd be some unusual flavoring they use. But I can confirm that much: egg whites, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, unsalted butter, water.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. icon_smile.gif

You know I was so busy trying to help you find your posts I forgot to help you with your original question LOL.

If you go to the Search feature in the forums and type in Publix buttercream recipe and select "find all words" you'll find quite a few threads with info on how to approximate their BC.

Here are a few I found
