Good Morning!

My question today is, can you freeze left over buttercream? If so, How long will it keep? Hopefullly this can be done as I have a lot of left overs!

Thanks so much!

Yes, you can!!!! (I sound like Bob the Builder icon_lol.gif ) I have kept it for months (maybe 3) and it does very well. When you need it, let if defrsot inside the refrigerator, and then when ready to use, take it out and let it come to room temp. Whip back to consistency and VIOLA!!!!! I have done it many times and it always work.....

Don't throw anything away....!!! icon_smile.gif

Thank you so very much! I can't tell you how many times I have cringed as I have thrown large and small amounts of perfectly good buttercream down the disposal. I am so glad to hear that I can save it.

Thanks so much!!!

I had posted this question a few weeks ago and got some good advice. I froze my RED, and we all know how difficult it is to make red! LOL I defrosted it like MariaLovesCakes said and it worked! I freeze all of my left over icing now. Saves me lots of time and $$$! Now my disposal can rest!
