Freeze excess butter cream frosting?

Made Whoopers-flavored cupcakes for my son's 21st birthday but the recipe made at least twice the frosting needed. It's delicious and was fiarly costly to prepare. Can I freeze it for future use? I'm thinking it would be amazing mixed into homemade ice cream, or on another cake.

Many thanks for the advice! I think I will save it in at least two containers.

Absolutely. I make it in huge batches and freeze it regularly. To reuse, thaw overnight in the fridge. The next day, scoop out 1/3 of it and melt it over a bain marie. Scoop the rest into the mixer bowl. Add the melted portion. Whip back to a spreadable consistency.

Yes, just save it in small plastic containers. You can thaw it in the microwave or fridge.
