Leftover Buttercream Icing

Have you ever baked a cake or cupcakes and had buttercream icing leftover once you were done with the cakes? What did you do with it? Throw it out? You don’t have to do that anymore!

I ran into this “problem” when I tested out a couple of new flavors of cupcakes/ buttercream icing. The icing flavors were out of this world, and I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away. It was so delicious and creamy, I could have eaten that stuff with a spoon like it was ice cream. It was that dangerous!

So what I did was pipe the icing on wax paper on either a plate or cookie sheet, threw it in the freezer to harden up, and then placed it in a freezer bag. Then I just put the bag in the freezer and I’d take out an icing swirl here and there when I was in the mood for something sweet (or an icing fix). That was  much better than eating it out of a bowl like ice cream!

Pop these suckers in the freezer
