I have 4 sheet cakes and one 10" round cake, all with cream cheese buttercream icing. The problem ~ I don't have enough room in my refrigerator to hold them all! Can they stay out overnight? I have tried every which way to get them in the fridge, but they just don't fit. Does cream cheese buttercream (cream cheese, butter, hi ration shortening, and sugar) have to be refrigerated?

Not sure how to advise you.
Why don't your check your recipe against Earlene Moore's ( - not sure there might be an's' between the e&c)
She has stated that her recipe has been checked by healthe dept people(?) and told it can be left out for up to a week - I believe.

Not to sound gross, but we have left out the last of the carrotcake with cream cheese (under a glass top.. so really, we aren't THAT gross), and my DH hasn't died yet. But if you FIND a good way for me to bump him off, let me know!!!!!! Seriously, though, if you are that concerned, perhaps you should invest in some styrofoam coolers and ice. that should keep things cool enough over night.
Good luck!

I don't leave cream cheese frosting out.

Kakeladi, thank you so much! My recipe and Earlene's only differ with butter ~ I add it and she doesn't. however, I have no problem leaving all butter buttercream iced cakes out overnight, so this should not be an issue. Thanks again ~ I am greatly relieved!

I've left carrot cake out while munching on it for a couple days with no ill effects.

If you want to keep them cool, you can buy dry ice. Years ago I didn't have a/c in my car, someone gave me advice to get a big box (larger than the cake box) put dry ice in the bottom, lay a piece of cardboard large enough to fit the box on top of it. Then put the cake packed in its cake box on top of that board, close it up and put all of this in one of those super large trash bags, like about 30 gallon size.

It will keep overnigh easy.

Same here. Except for a mysterious enlargement of my backside icon_redface.gif
