    It doesn't need to be refrigerated before use. If you would like for it to stay more fluid, adding corn syrup will give it more of a fudge topping (like for ice cream) consistency

    You can bring it back to a loose consistency by warming in the microwave.

    Small bursts of time and then stir....repeat until smooth again.

    You mentioned you are struggling.... what sort of buttercream are you striving to produce?
