Just thought i'd ask this while i think of it. A little while ago i made some buttercream the day before i needed to use it and put it in the fridge overnight and then put it out the next day to soften it up again but i found it was sort of thicker and less fluffy than the day before.
Does this usually happen when you put it in the fridge and should just make it on the day or did i maybe not wait long enough for it to soften up? I did re beat it again to soften it up but it didn't bring it back to the consistency i had the day before
Any help would be appreciated
Oh, I leave it in there a week or more at a time..... it really isn't a problem.... you just need to bring it back to room temp.
yeh well i was thinking i'm sure people do it all the time and maybe just didn't wait long enough to get to a nice room temp
Did you use real butter? Being that you are in AU I know you have different ingredients (No Crisco) etc. That probably has something to do with your results.
Yeh i always use real butter. Nothing bad happened like the butter didn't seperate or anything it jsut didn't have the same fluffy consistency but then again i waited a fair while but couldn't wait any longer and it might not have been at room temp yet
