This is probably a stupid question, but does it work to freeze buttercream? I just got done with making a birthday cake for myself, and I ended up with quite a bit of leftover buttercream. Has anyone tried this, and does it still taste good when it is thawed?

Yep, it works just fine. Make sure the buttercream is sealed up tight. When you want to use it, let it come to room temp and beat it for a few minutes in your mixer. icon_smile.gif

Oh, good! Thank you so much for your help! I hated the thought of just throwing away all that good buttercream! icon_smile.gif

I always freeze any left overs.. especially those pesky colors that you have to make up for one or two small projects. They sure come in handy when I have another one of those cakes that I only need a dab or two of some color!!! I just rotate those colors out when I need to!

That's a great idea!
