Just to be safe, I'd refrigerate it............although I've left cakes out for a few days with jelly/icing filling and they were fine. If it's a "runny" type of jelly, then it might soak into the cake, causing a problem. My mom's "freezer jelly" gets pretty runny at room temperature.

I make that same freezer jelly recipe. I usually refrigerate anything that I use it with.

Does refrigerating cakes make them dry, im afraid of this i told the girl i havent tried one yet but it may be dry she said it wouldnt be my fault since she had to move the date how would you store it you know wrap it or i can store it in a cake keeper
Thanks

I'm thinking one day at room temp won't hurt anything.

freezer jelly is no more runny at room temp than cold. It sits for 24 hours on the counter when you make it so no it will not spoil that fast.

it will not mold that fast no faster than any other jam or jelly

think about it does a strawberry growing in the feild have to be in the fridge??

now if your jam is runny you either have old pectin, did not follow the directions.( didn't boil long enough) or too much liquid.

I have in the past when I thought I had old pectin do that step againwith some new surejell and mix it in the runny jam and it firmed it right up.

My freezer Strawberry jam is not runny cold or room temp.
