I freeze bc and defrost for my family to use later. I have found with mine that you have to let it defrost at room temp--no cheating with the microwave. Then i whip it real quick with the mixer to give it it's original fluff and to mix the extracts and colors back in--mine tends to weep a bit after it thaws. Hope that helps!

Refreeze away.... it will be fine. I would recommend rewhipping it, once it is COMPLETELY defrosted.

I use the Crusting BC on this site. Will that be ok to freeze and/or refreeze? What do you freeze your BC in?

I freeze mine in airtight plastic containers. If your container isn't full, you might want to put plastic wrap on top of the BC itself just keep air off of it and prevent ice crystals.

How long will it freeze well?

I make a crusting bc, and it keeps really well for several months. Just make sure it's sealed well so you don't end up with ice crystals on it. I just re-whip before using. I have found that over time, the flavoring tends to weaken though, so when I beat it I put just a touch more almond and butter flavors in it.

I have the crusting butter cream on my frozen cakes. I used impression mats for some, but need to add the impressions to another post-defrost. Odd question, but will it re-crust? If not, what can I do?
