How do I store buttercream dream on my cupcakes? I plan on making them tonight for Tuesday morning as a part of time constraint. Any help is appreciated!! icon_smile.gif

Can't you put it in an airtight box and in the fridge?

Sorry, I saw the "dream" part later. So what are the ingredients in the buttercream?

Hi, I have made buttercream dream only is sooooo good. It does crust but the icing underneath is very soft. I think I added too much sugar or not enough liquid icon_confused.gif and some of the border and fru-fru I had put on the cake tended to fall off...icing was still yummy and hubby scraped all the stuff off the cake plate and ate it like candy. This was on a cake, the cuppied I did went so fast I can't tell you how they lasted for any length of time tho....I have problems keeping cuppies fresh. Maybe brush some simple syrup on the tops before you frost, then make sure all the cake part is covered with icing. Your best bet may be to store in a tightly covered container in the fridge. Not just covered but in like a tupperware type of container. Good luck.

The ingredients are butter, sugar, milk, crisco. Is there a better more stable recipe for cupcakes? I'm looking for more of a non-crusting but don't want to refrigerate unless necessary I wanted to make SMBC but don't have the time to make that the morning off icon_sad.gif

You'll be fine storing it in the fridge. If it is a bit hard when you take it out in the morning, let it come to roomtemperature and then give it a little stir! icon_smile.gif
