I made the BC icing this week and put in the fridge. Do I have to let it set out and get to room temp before I can ice the cake or can I microwave it for a short time? I have two containers with two recipes in each one and a single one in another. Thanks

I wouldnt warm it in the microwave. It can seperate or get too soft very quickly. I set my buttercream out on the counter in the morning before i go to work or at lunch if I know I need it that evening. I dont use anything in my recipe that cant sit out so I know it will be ready when I need it.

I keep all of my different colors of buttercream, my leftovers, in the fridge in case I just need a little bit of a color for something. If I need it quickly, I put it in my microwave on defrost for 10-15 seconds depending on how much bc is in the container. I take it out and stir it up, and it's fine.

You can wrap a hot damp kitchen towel around the bowl, check and stir/whip every so often.

Me too. I just let it come to room temperature. I'm afraid that the microwave will melt it.

What bc recipe did you use? You shouldn't have to refrigerate bc at all.

I always warm mine in the micro. Short intervals, stir in between. For a large square tupperware it usually takes 15 sec then stir then 10 sec

I use the Wilton recipe with a couple of alterations also...So it does not need to be refrigerated.

If you are going to keep it a while, you really do need to refrigerate it and just let it sit out at room temp to warm up. I had left mine out for a week (forgot I had set it to the side) and when I opened the top the butter that was in it had seperated from the frosting and was watery in the bottom of the container.
