Getting the right consistency for your buttercream frosting
Thankfully changing the consistency of your frosting is one of the easiest fixes! Our Frosting Consistency Chart makes it easy to achieve the consistency you need for your decorating project. Generally adding more liquid will thin down your frosting and confectioners’ sugar will make it thicker. Doing these will also affect the taste of your frosting, so be sure to sample as you go.
Tips for coloring the buttercream frosting
A little goes a long way. Try adding only a little at a time and mix it in well, checking to make sure you’ve achieved the right shade. When coloring buttercream frosting, remember that colors will intensify or darken after a few hours.
