Storage and care instructions
Your frosting is ready to use, so it does not need to be whipped or stirred unless you are adding colouring or flavouring. Even then, it only needs to be stirred until your extra ingredients are combined.
The beauty of frosting is that it is NOT buttercream. It has a higher melting point than buttercream and is best stored at between 15-25 degrees. It is shelf-stable so does not need refrigeration.
If you do plan to refrigerate your frosting, keep in mind it will harden and need to be brought back to a soft, room temperature consistency to make an enjoyable eating experience.
In the winter, or if you've stored your frosting for a couple of weeks, it may become a little firmer. To bring back the silky smooth feel before piping or decorating, add a tablespoon of boiled water and stir the water through the frosting.
Please note that although this product contains no gluten or dairy, it is manufactured using shared kitchen facilities that are used with other recipes containing eggs, wheat, dairy, soy and nuts. Therefore our frosting and any of our other in-house manufactured items may contain traces of any of these ingredients.
We recommend collection in store or local area delivery only.
It's not ideal to have frosting shipped, as we can't control the temperature of the facilities or vehicles it will be stored in.
