How to thicken frosting
Thicker frosting: An easy way to thicken strawberry cake frosting is to add a little more powdered sugar. However, the more powdered sugar you add, the weaker the strawberry flavor will be. If you need to thicken it significantly and maintain the berry flavor, you will want to try to reduce the puree on the stove top.
- In a small saucepan, cook the strawberry puree over medium heat until it is reduced by about half.
- You must let the puree cool or the butter will melt.
- Once cooled, add the puree to the butter and continue the recipe.
Another way to thicken the frosting and maintain the flavor is to use freeze-dried strawberries.
- Mix (or use a food processor) the freeze-dried strawberries until they form a powder. You can sift out the seeds or use them directly.
- Add the powder and a bit of milk to the butter to make up for the lack of moisture. First add ¼ c of strawberry powder and 2-3 tablespoons of milk.
- Add powdered sugar.
- Add more milk (to make it thinner) or strawberry powder (to make it thicker) until you reach the texture you want.
How to store
For best results Shop Put the icing sugar in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
Once you have used the frosting on the cake, the cake can be left at room temperature for 1-3 days, in the refrigerator for 3-5 days or in the refrigerator for 2-3 months.
