Confetti Frosting FAQ
Cooking with funfetti frosting can be fun and rewarding, but there are a few common questions cakes beginners often have. Many people find themselves wondering if the colorful sprinkles will bleed into the frosting when mixed, sometimes leading to a less vibrant result. The key is to gently fold the sprinkles into the frosting just before using it to ensure the colors stay bright. Others can be unsure about when to apply the frosting. The frosting should ideally be applied when the cake or cupcake is completely cool to ensure it doesn't melt. Also, some people tend to apply too much frosting, which can overpower the taste of the baked goods. One little-known tip is that homemade funfetti frosting often has a superior flavor to store-bought versions. Making your own frosting gives you the opportunity to control the sweetness level and the quality of the ingredients. Another fun fact is that you can create themed funfetti frosting by using sprinkles of specific colors and shapes to suit different occasions.

When does funfetti frosting expire?
Unopened funfetti frosting typically has a best-before date printed on the packaging which is usually about 2-3 years from the date of production. However, once the frosting has been opened, it should ideally be consumed within a month if it is stored in the refrigerator. If you've made your own funfetti frosting, it should be used within 2-3 days. For those who want to extend the frosting's life, it can be frozen and then used within a month.
How do you tell if funfetti frosting is bad?
Signs that your funfetti frosting has gone bad include changes in color and appearance – it might appear darker and more stiff. There can also be a sour or off-putting smell. You may also see mold forming on the frosting. If there are any signs of spoilage, it is best to discard the frosting immediately to avoid foodborne illnesses.
