  • During warm weather, it is advisable not to leave the butter out overnight, as it may become too soft.

  • In colder seasons like spring, autumn, or winter, it may be challenging to maintain the softness of the buttercream. To soften it, you may add a tablespoon of hot water or condensed milk, milk, or cream. However, if you add cream or milk, make sure to use the buttercream within 24 hours or store it in the refrigerator.

  • For buttercream, it is best to use a gel colouring.
