TIPS FOR A LIGHT AND FLUFFY FROSTING
- Good ingredients “real” butter not margarine
- Room temperature ingredients
- Be patient…you’ll need to whip the frosting at least 3 to 5 minutes (sometimes I do this step twice). This will allow air to incorporate into the butter and create the lightness you want.
- That’s it! It’s really not as hard as you might think
You can freeze frosting? Making homemade cupcakes and frosting just got a whole lot easier! To freeze your frosting: Spoon the frosting into a labeled zip top bag and freeze. When ready to use, place the bag on the counter to come to room temperature. Spoon into a large mixing bowl. Whip for 3 to 5 minutes. This is to incorporate air into the frosting for a light and fluffy texture. Okay, a little disclaimer on the whole freezing thing for this recipe. Cookie dough frosting is a little different then the typical frosting recipe. I froze this frosting and didn’t like how dense it was. So here is the deal. This frosting is amazing if freshly made…BUT….if you choose to freeze it I would recommend using it as a filler. Meaning roll the frosting into 1-inch balls, hollow out the cupcakes and insert the frosting into the cupcake. Add a layer of “regular” frosting to the top of the cupcakes. Presto! Filled cookie dough cupcakes! OH….and the culprit? FLOUR! I feel like the extra mixing kind of made the frosting gummy.
