  • Notes:

    • Syrup may be cooled in the refrigerator, but only to room temperature; if it is left refrigerated for too long, it may harden.
    • Butter should be softened, but not too warm. If butter is too warm, buttercream will be too soft and may separate.
    • To store: Frosting should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks and can be frozen for up to 6 weeks.
