I always make buttercream, but for some reason tonight it got stiff. Any suggestions on how to soften up again or do I have to start all over??? icon_cry.gif

Is is cold? Or dry? I'd try mixing in some more liquid.

I would add some milk/water a few drops at a time. That should thin it out for you.

I use a little bit of light corn syrup to thin mine. I use the all-shortening recipe though. Works for me! HTH icon_smile.gif
