Hi out there,
I made a batch of 7 minute frosting for the first time on Saturday to put on a coconut cake. It came out like a dream. Fluffy and white and tasting kinda marshmallowy...( Is that a word?)
I covered the cake with my cake saver as I always do, went out for a couple hours and when I came back home the frosting seemed to have separated. The cake seeminly soaked up the whole soppy mess and left me with a coconut covered plain cake.
I must say that it tasted heavenly separated frosting and all but I am wondering what I did wrong.
Did I cover it while the frosting was still too warm?
Is it the humidity in the Caribbean where I live?
Should I have refrigerated it?
Help anyone. And thanks in advance.
Humidity will definitely affect 7-minute frosting.
So should I have put it in the fridge then?
7-minute frosting should be consumed as soon as possible. it's good for 12 hours but it's really best when you eat it sooner.
I've put it on cupcakes and put those in the fridge. they were okay but the frosting wasn't as fluffy and soft.
