Chefs Tip For The Recipe

Tip for Making Strawberry Puree.

Use sweet strawberries to make puree before adding them to make the frosting. Grind the fresh strawberries in a grinder until a fine and smooth texture is achieved.

Quick Tip for Reviving Curdled Frosting.

If you see the frosting grainy or curdled, revive it by microwaving a very small part of the frosting for a few seconds and adding it to the rest, then beat again with an electric hand beater.

Tip for a Smooth Frosting.

Use room-temperature ingredients to make the frosting. Using room-temperature ingredients will ensure easier mixing and create a smoother and creamier texture. 

How to Store Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting?

Although it is recommended to make the frosting freshly when needed, you can make this ahead and keep it in the fridge after covering the bowl with cling wrap. It can stay in the fridge for about 15 days.

It can stay in the freezer for up to 1 month. Just make sure to thaw it and beat it again before using it.
