The canned frosting is a convenient and quick way to decorate your baked goods. However, though it is still tasty, it often lacks the delicious flavor that homemade frosting has. That is why you should add butter to your canned frosting to elevate the taste.
One difference between canned and homemade frosting is canned often not as fluffy as homemade. Adding butter to frosting is what makes it so creamy, flavorful, and fluffy. It is a key ingredient in many homemade frosting recipes.
When adding butter to your canned frosting it is key that the butter is at room temperature. You should allow your butter to sit out of the fridge for around 30 minutes, until it is soft to the touch, but not melting.
Since you added butter to your frosting, it should be kept in the fridge in an airtight container. Properly stored, it can last up to one week in the fridge. Allow your frosting to reach temperature before decorating, as this will make it much easier to work with.
If you want homemade frosting but don’t have the time or all the ingredients, this hack is a great solution.Adding unsalted butter to your store-bought frosting will improve the texture and flavor. It will give it a nice buttery taste and a fluffy, creamy consistency.
