I have extra chocolate buttercream icing from a cake I made for thanksgiving. I put it in the freezer. Can you freeze buttercream? If so, how do you thaw it out? In the fridge? I want to use it for the top tier of a bday cake next week. I thought this cake order was for 2 weeks out, but now it's next week. Thanks!

yep, you can freeze. thaw in fridge, then bring to room temp, then rewhip. I've been making mine without milk, I use other liquids or liquers, or water if I have to. Then I can refrigerate it until the butter I used in it reaches it's expiration date, which can be 2 or 3 months...

I thaw mine either on the counter or in the microwave, if I'm in a hurry. Be careful in the microwave, though, because it will melt. I use the "soften" setting on my microwave & select the "ice cream" choice. After it's thawed a little, I mix it up in my mixer.

I freeze mine ALL the time. Buttercream freezes well.

Thanks so much for getting back to me! Does it matter that I used milk as my liquid? I already froze it. I'm so excited about being able to freeze it!

Milks fine if you're freezing...
