Yummy Icing You Can Freeze

I love this buttercream frosting recipe (click on the words to get to it on allrecipes.com)! It is really yummy and makes a ton, so the last time I made it, I froze some.

This week I wanted to make Halloween sugar cookies with the kids, so I thawed out the icing. The kids and I whipped up the cookies and baked them. And then added some food coloring to the icing to make it orange. The kids had so much fun turning the white to orange and icing the cookies, and of course eating them!

It was a very easy (well as easy as baking with 3 little kids can be) baking project with the kids because the frosting was already made! I am amazed that the icing froze and thawed without losing taste or texture!

Now I'm going to keep some of that frosting in the freezer at all times for whipping up easier batches of cupcakes and cookies!

  1. I had no idea you could freeze frosting! What a great tip!

  2. I've tried freezing frosting, but I always forget that it's in the freezer! LOL!

  3. Oh, cool! I'll have to try that. :D Never froze frosting before!

  4. I like freezing little bags of frosting for sweet rolls. That looks like a good recipe you linked! Thank you!


I'd love to hear what you think!
