I finally found a location to buy Rich's bettercream and I am very excited to give it a try. I bought a one quart carton, on the side it says that it can be frozen for 1 year, in the fridge for 90 days but once opened its only good for 7 days. Does this mean I can't open the carton use what I need and then re-freeze the rest?

I want to open it and try a filling recipe before an event I plan to use it for but I don't want to waste the rest of the carton if it can't be re-frozen. Also, its the kind that needs to be whipped, not the pre-whipped version.

I've frozen, thawed and refrozen several times with no problems.

When I buy the large container of it I open it and put it into small plastic containers and then freeze. When I want to use it I take out however many containers that I feel I need. If I happen to take out to many containers, I put them back in the freezer. Never had any problems.

thank you all for your super quick responses. I love this site! I just whipped up a small batch with chocolate pudding to fill cupcakes and it was excellent. Even my son, who usually does not like frosting, ate a whole cupcake and asked for another icon_smile.gif I am now a dedicated fan of bettercream, I can't wait to try it with other flavors.

I love using Rich's Bettercreme.
If you whip it too long, it gets nice and stiff and holds its shape rather well.
(see my golf cake photo...its used on the whole cake...even the grass)!

It seems that when I keep it in the freezer it never really freezes hard anyhow, so I open it, pour out what I need while its still "frozen" and put the rest back. I've never thawed and refrozen anything in my life...some "rule" I learned growing up I guess.

I love their choc flavor too..good stuff!
