If you use store-bought frosting more, how many tubs of frosting do you need to frost a cake?
And if you prefer to make your own frosting....if you have any left over after frosting a cake, can you store it for later use?
Sorry for all of the questions, I'm just really curious!
whatever I have leftover I put it in the freezer but sometimes when I go back to use it it's gone cuz my mother in law and father in law tend to throw it out. And that just really gets me mad! But if your looking for a way to go on the whole icing thing. Make it! It's easier and u get more than you would in the store bought little tub!!!
I make my own with butter, powdered sugar, milk and either cocoa and vanilla or french vanilla coffee syrup. Much tastier!!!
Canned frosting is really hard to pipe any decorations with, but it works great between the layers or for a plain iced cake all over.
That being said...if you are going to be using a lot of icing making it is the way to go...buying does get expensive and yes, it does taste different.
When you need it again....
Thaw it on the countertop. Snip the end of the baggy and squeeze it into a bowl. Re-whip it. May need to add a drop or two of flavoring to revive it back to life. (That is only if you freeze for an extended period of time.)
