I made two double batches of buttercream dream icing off this site Thursday afternoon, I left it out overnight and used it to frost some cupcakes on Friday afternoon. It sat out all night in its container again. It is now Saturday night and it has sat in the trunk of my car all afternoon in very warm weather during a wedding I attended (brought it "just in case") It's now in my fridge, my question is, can I keep this icing until this Thursday when I can salvage it for another cake order, or should I toss and kiss some money down the drain? Thanks for any help on the matter.

I'm gonna guess and say no, it's probably bad. I use buttercream dream and think it sitting in the car would surely spoil it, after all it does have butter and milk in it. I don't know though, I could be wrong, but I'd toss it just in case...........sorry!

thanks, I thought I had read that because there is so much sugar to milk ratio it would be fine .. I will wait and see what others say, if they don't mind telling me ..

I would toss it as there is butter, egg whites- these items don't do well sitting in the heat of a car.
You don't want anyone to get sick.

I've done the same thing and tossed it. just can't take the chance of someone getting sick. In my first culinary class in Jr. High, the rule of thumb that we were taught was, "When in doubt, throw it out." That was nearly 30 years ago and I still live by that rule in my kitchen....
