How earily can you make frosting for a cake? I have the wilton classes on Mondays and I was wondering if I could make the frosting ahead of time. I know you can bake the cakes ahead of time and freeze them but can you do the same with the frosting? I have a hand held mixer so it will take awhile for me to make the frosting. So is like a day ahead okay or is that to earily?
Wilton says their class icing can be left on the cabinet for 2 weeks. I personally prefer to put mine in the fridge and have kept it for longer than 2 weeks in there.
Will it keep the right consisty? Like thick med and thin? If I put in the fridge or leave it out?
Yes it will. It may sperate a little, but just stirring it fixes that.
Just make sure to refrigerate it. I have a big tub in my fridge for last minute stuff. Never seems to go bad, maybe seperate a little but tastes just fine in the end.
Since I don't make cakes everyday, I put my left-over frosting in the freezer in ziploc bags. It comes in really handy if I need just a small amount of a certain color. After I put it in the bag and seal it up, I try to squish it into a flat shqpe though rather than a big blob so it will thaw faster.
