how long can frosting keep in freezer?

I made coconut pecan frosting for a german chocolate cake 5 months ago. I froze the leftover frosting. I'd like to use the frosting this weekend but not sure if it will taste ok. I froze it in tupperware with a layer of saran wrap over the top of the frosting. I don't want to thaw it out just yet and taste it b/c I don't want to have to refreeze/rethaw again this weekend. I'm trying to avoid having to make a new batch of frosting ...has anyone used frozen frosting after 5 months and had good results? Thanks!

  1. Frozen frosting is still fairly soft. You don't have to thaw the whole container. Dig a very small sample out with a teaspoon, let it thaw, and see how it tastes. Then you can decide what to do with it. But it should be fine.

      A very common-sense reply that I should have thought of myself. I will do that...thanks!

    2. I had some german chocolate cake frosting in my freezer for a year that was totally fine when I finally got around to using it up. I'm sure yours will be ok.
