I made 7 minute frosting last night for my husbands birhtday cake. My question is do you have to refridgerate this cake because of the egg whites? It looked a little droopy this morning nad for health reasons I don't know if it's still okay to eat it. I am starting a cake business and I need this info for furture reference. Is this a good icing for cakes I sell to customers...i.e does it keep well?

I wouldn't refridgerate it b/c it will mess up the consistency of the frosting. I personally LOVE 7 minute frosting, but it's probably not everyone's fav. and you don't have to worry about the egg whites because they cook from the hot syrup.

definitely no refrigeration. as for being droopy, 7-minute frosting doesn't hold up for long. It's generally something you make and eat immediately! yum yum. Or that's as long as it lasts in my house. icon_biggrin.gif

7 minute frosting is only good for 24 hours. i actually have not let it go for more than 12 hours. it gets sticky or something and is not as good as when it was just made. i like it a lot though.

I love 7 minute frosting as well...and have set it in the fridge before. But, only for family use, it definitely doesn't stay glossy and yummy looking for customers - although the taste is still there. My family has also eaten it next day unrefrigerated, no one died! icon_lol.gif

If it were more versatile, I'd use it more for customer cakes. I think cupcakes can be more forgiving....I plan to try it, anyway!

Best of luck to you!! thumbs_up.gif
