Just wondering, if a cake has cream cheese for the filling and icing , do you refrigerate and if so what do you put the cake in?? what kind of container?? Thanks to everyone , Will it make it dry tasting?

A cake can be refrig'd for one or two days max before it starts to go stale.
Depending on the recipe you used it could stay out on the counter that long........
Earlene Moore has a good cr ch b'cream recipe. Check out her site.

What about the Cream cheese icing will it go bad if not refrigerated?

If there is enough sugar in it that will preserve it.

When in doubt the foodsafe people teach there is only a 4 hr window that things can be left out of the frig....including display time & the time you work on it.
Again, it depends on the recipe used.

I did use a lot of powerderd sugar but i went ahead and refrigerated it, just to be safe hopefully it wont dry out ive never refrigerated before, and i heard on the site here that it wont be dry then i heard it would dry it out, so i dont know , hopefully she will eat it today and be done with it(:
Thanks for your info

As long as you have a cool dry place to store cake, you can leave it out for at least a day prior to event.
