No, they are more like Cool Whip or whipped cream, but more stable and they taste better. They have no powdered sugar, butter or Crisco, so nothing like buittercream icing.

if you're a lic bakery or cake shop that uses Rich's products they will provide you with a free seminar on how to use their products.

It's a 3 day 2 night, meal included on their dime!

They have a Cake decorating one that I've been trying to get into and they keep on sending me to the savory one..lol

that's where I learned how to make the Aligator bread and the grape cluster and a great stuffed pizza pie!

Alot of the grocery stores around here use a whipped icing called Bettercreme, I think, but I'm not sure if it's Rich's or another brand. The only ones I've tried are vanilla and chocolate from grocery stores and was not impressed. I would love to try some of these recipes, sounds great!

Could you tell me where the cash and carry is located? I've been to Food Distributors of the Americas cash and carry but would love to try some new ones. Typical American that I am i'll drive 30 miles to have stuff now instead of ordering it and waiting a few days. Some people visit museums I'm all about restaurant supply stores.

Just a FYI to Canadians here.....just sent an e-mail to Rich's to see if anywhere in Canada sells Bettercreme or if they have a substitute product. Will let you know what I find out...
Sounds fabulous and would love to get my hands on some!

I wonder if using the non-dairy coffee creamers, with vanilla pudding, would work. It would make it totally non-dairy, but would it be able to sit out overnight without refrigeration?

The cash and carry is right next to the factory, on Niagara street by West Ferry. (In Buffalo) It is on the land side of the street as opposed to the river side of the street, right after the parking lot. It is red brick, and you park on the street out in front of it. The vanilla Bettercreme was $3.60 a quart, Chocolate is $3.99 and if you get the pre-colored in the decorator bag it is $2.99. They have all their products there, so the "on top" and bettercreme and the one in the blue can, I think they call it whipped creme. It is more like heavy creme as far as stability, but with added sweetener.

I think at Food Distributors bettecreme is $5 or something like that, so this is a lot cheaper. They have fillings too, like apple and cherry...all the kinds that you would find in donuts.

Good Morning Jane,

Sorry Bettercreme is only sold in the United States.

Regards,


Oh well, I guess a trip across the border might be in order....

Bettercream is also sold at GFS (Gordon Food Service) stores, in the freezer section.

Here's another filling idea: Creme de Menthe

Mix whipped Bettercream with marshmallow fluff - about 1/2 of the large jar to a container of Bettercream. Flavor with Creme de Menthe flavor oil to taste. I like to add a hint of green coloring. Soooo soo good with chocolate cake!

I'd imagine you could try other flavors too.

Wow that sounds really good, czyadgirl. That would totally make that Bettercream rock! Now I'm going to try and find some Bettercream so that I can make that

Just remember not to mix it too much or it will get really hard to use.

Do any of you use the bettercream to ice the cake, or just for fillings? I would like to try it out, but I'm not clear on what you can use it for. Does it get thick, like an icing, or more of a whipped cream texture? Can you pipe flowers with it? Is it thick enough for that?

I have used it to cover cake with, and it is said that it can be used to pipe flowers, although I haven't tried that. There was a thread I think in June of 2006 which discussed piping with it. I am not skilled enough for that, perhaps others will be able to 'pipe' in hehehe....sorry, couldn't resist.

It is much more stable than whipped cream, I whip it to soft peaks in about 10 minutes or so. If you go too far, I have heard that it siezes up, but I don't know whether that is true or not, as I have stopped before then.

JANE: You think I could send you some frozen? It is a food item though...probably not icon_sad.gif
