Make sure to use room temperature butter: Room temperature butter is crucial to creating perfect buttercream every time. To test if your butter is ready, press your finger into the butter. If your finger makes an indent but doesn’t slide around, you’re good to go. If your finger comes out greasy or goes through the butter too easily, your butter is likely too soft.

To Color: Use Icing Colors or food coloring to tint frosting to any color without disturbing the consistency of the frosting.
To Store: Leftover frosting can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Frosting can also be frozen for up to three months. Bring frosting back to room temperature and re-whip using a paddle attachment until it’s the correct consistency before reusing.
