Ok, so if you're like my you've had a hard time finding official timelines (not hearsay, which varies wildly) on how long opened and whipped Pastry Pride stays good (as in it should be eaten within that time period). I spoke to Debbie, who works for Cremes Unlimited, the current manufacturer of Pastry Pride, and here are the official timelines:
Pastry Pride, once thawed and whipped, lasts 5 days unrefrigerated, and 7 days refrigerated. There may be many of you who already knew this, but I've also read a lot of posts on CC that did not have these facts straight, so there you go... officially!
Thanks! I appreciate you sharing the information.
Thanks for the 411!!
Pastry Pride can also be frozen after it's been whipped.
Ok, so any idea how PP holds up to freezing? Say if I was to mix some instant jello pudding with it, fill a cake, then freeze said cake for carving(mad hatter style) will it hold up or is this a cake disaster waiting to happen? TIA!
I don't know how it will hold up after applied to the cake and frozen, but I freeze my whipped Pastry Pride all the time. It hold up really well, but I find it does need a little re-whipping to get the firm consistency after being frozen. It seems to deflate some after being frozen and needs a little help.
