I tried to freeze my leftover buttercream icing and after I defrosted it to use it, it had a funny taste. What is the best way to freeze buttercream icing?

Icing easily picks up odors in the freezer, so always make sure you place it into an airtight container before freezing. This will also help prevent freezer burn or drying out of your icing.
