As a mother, I’m not very good at baking. On the other hand, when I bake, I don’t skimp on anything. You say that my cakes have frosting?
I have often overestimated how much frosting I would need and ended up with way too much. Can it be frozen after it’s been iced?
Stop being hard on yourself because you made too much icing. This is a common mistake. Frosting does not have an end date. It can be kept in case you want to make a cake later.
There are two different ways to store frosting. You can put them in the refrigerator or freezer. Unlike the other method, which only makes your frosting last a few days longer, this one can be used for months.
Can you Freeze Frosting?
Any leftover frosting can be stored in the freezer. You can put any frosting left over in the freezer. Refrigeration is another way to keep things from going bad.
If you want to keep the frosting in the fridge, just put it in an airtight container. A freezer is where you keep things that have been frozen.
I think that freezing is a lot better than refrigeration. That’s just my opinion, though. I don’t like to bake for fun. I might not do it again for a few months, so until then, freezing makes me feel safer.
If you have extra icing, it will only last a few days in the fridge. Regular buttercream frosting will last for about 5 days, but Swiss meringue buttercream frosting will last for a week.
If you have any leftover frosting, the best way to store it is in the freezer, since it will last for months in the fridge without going bad. Ganache can be kept for up to nine months, while buttercream can only be kept for three.
Now that you know this, you can rest easy the next time you have extra icing. If you want the frosting to work best, use it within a few days of making it. If it doesn’t, put it in the refrigerator or freezer.
How to Freeze Frosting?
