AWhen you have finished decorating your cake; what do you do with your excess frosting? You don't have enough to use but too much to consciencely discard.

Personally I love it on toast. Or my very favorite indulgence, on a cinnamon toasted waffle. Lol. :grin:

Well, whatever the amount you have over I either make cupcakes or a small cake and bring it in the office for my co-workers.  Yes, I do still have my full time job and make cakes.

AI work as well and sometimes I do that also. When I don't have cakes to do for people I do practice ones trying new techniques or trying to perfect old ones.

AI just save the bc to use another day. You can also freeze it.

I never freeze mine because I would have to keep buying containers! I never need the same color twice for anything it seems.  I usually make cupcakes and put a big swirl of buttercream that I have left on the top and take it to work.  I too work full time and they love it when I bring the stuff.  I am sick of cake/cupcakes and my husband hates cakes/cupcakes, so that's my only out.

I freeze it in odd containers or baggies and then mix it all together--it's a great way to get a dark color that can be turned black with very little black color added to it.

I use it for cupcakes. Sometimes, if it is a regular colour, I store it in a container.

I keep it in the fridge in small containers as well.  I also don't freeze it because I would forget it was in there...

It goes in what I call the crazy-day-mommy-stash. Just right for one of those hair-pulling-out days when only sugar will make it better!! icon_biggrin.gif And no, I don't share.

Another vote for freezing.

Lol. That's what I'm talking about. You should really try it on cinnamon waffled.

I never thought of putting it on waffles or pancakes, what a great idea! Maybe I'll try it on top of my cinnamon rolls too!
