If I have leftover buttercream, I put it into a plastic container and freeze it.

My question is . . . if I thaw it and use part, can I re-freeze it? Will it change the taste and/or consistency?

Anybody?? Please?

I hate to see it go to waste, but I'd also hate to see it go to MY waist -- she says with spoon poised over the frosting bowl. icon_wink.gif

I thaw and refreeze all the time. If my consistancy changes, I add more PS.

Maybe portion and freeze then you can thaw out only what you're going to use. I would think thawing and re freezing would affect the quality somehow. HTH

It can be done ....... have done it many times. You will have to re-beat it when you defrost it. This time when you re-freeze put it in smaller containers or plastic zip bags so you don't have to defrost it often.

yep but it will stay good in the fridge for a LONG time. I keep all my leftover colors in little containers as well as larger amounts of cho and van bc. I never have a problem with taste or it keeping well. This is esp great cause black and red get darker with time so i will make bigger batches and toss them in the fridge for weeks on end...always good, never a problem
