Why is my frosting not fluffy?
My Buttercream Frosting Isn’t Stiff Enough… The first thing I’d suggest is to chill the buttercream frosting.

If this doesn’t seem to do the trick, try adding sifted powdered sugar, a few tablespoons at a time.

How do I turn store bought icing into whipped icing?
Whip it good. Dump your canned frosting into a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer or into the bowl of an electric mixer and whip it up. Without even adding any other ingredients, this will aerate the frosting for a fluffier consistency.
How do you make piping icing thicker?
Most frostings contain powdered sugar, or icing sugar, and the most common way to thicken a runny frosting is by gradually mixing in a bit more powdered sugar to offset the liquid ingredients. Sprinkle in 1 to 2 tbsp (15 to 30 mL) of powdered sugar at a time, then stir it in and check the consistency.
Can you overbeat buttercream?
Try not to overbeat the buttercream after all the ingredients have been added or you might add bubbles, which will ruin the texture of the icing. You can also beat the buttercream for a few minutes to create great fluffy texture.
