How Should I Store Leftover Frosting?

You should store left over frosting in an air tight container in refrigerator. Don’t store the frosting near smell foods in the fridge. Avoid fish, meat, and onions.

You can keep your frosting in the fridge for up to a week.

Can you Freeze Frosting?

You can store your frosting in the freezer by simply placing it into an air tight container. You can prevent ice crystal from forming by placing wrap directly onto the surface of the frosting before you put the lid on. The frosting will last in the freezer for 3 weeks.

To defrost the frosting, take it out of the freezer the night before and thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. When you’re ready to use the frosting, remove it from the fridge and let it come to room temperature.

When the frosting has reached room temperature, stir it until it is spreadable.

Strawberry Recipes

Heat a small pot on medium heat. Add the strawberries, water, and 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar.

Reduce the mixture from 1 cup to a 1/4 cup of strawberry mixture. Keep mixing so that the mixture does not burn or stick.

Once the strawberries are reduced, set the pot aside.

Now, sift the powdered sugar to make a nice smooth frosting. This is key to avoid graininess in the icing.
