I make my buttercream with a mixture of margarine and crisco and it usually comes out great, except this time I accidentally used salted margarine. My frosting came out salty. Is there any way I can remedy this batch or do I need to start over? I made a huge batch of frosting (4lb of sugar/4 cups of shortening) I have lemon, orange and vanilla extract I could add but i don't know if any of those will cut the saltiness. Thanks.
At best, you can bake a bunch more and dilute the salt. Perhaps portion it out small and add it to the next bunch of batches?
Thanks Kory. I actually didn't think of that. I have been so frazzled that I have 8 pounds of icky frosting that I haven't been thinking clearly. I guess that will be the only way to salvage it. I am going to have to do a lot of baking in the near future. Can you freeze frosting? If so maybe I can freeze it and add it to future batches.
Yep, sounds like a plan.
