I made two batches of buttercream dream icing today, but won't be able to put it on my cakes until tomorrow .. they are single batches in both of my KA 6qt bowls with the actual plastic covers for the bowls .. I do not have room in my fridge to put these bowls ... will it be safe to keep the icing covered on my counter until tomorrow when I can ice my cakes? Thanks for any help.

it is absolutely ok to leave your icing out until you decorate tomorrow.. i usually make mine the nite before... covered with a very damp towel.. been doing this for 13 years.. hth

definetly. I have 10 lbs sitting on my counter in bowls, with lids of course, and I will use it to decorate with tomorrow. No problem at all!

Do you have room in the freezer? You can put it in freezer bags and take it out a few hours before you need to use it.

no I don't have room in the freezer, I was able to get it in my fridge last night, so should it be ok to use on Monday?

Yes, fine. Just give it a good mix before you use it.

Can this icing hold up well for decorating borders, flowers,etc..?

thanks for the replies! I use this icing on all my cakes including borders, but I rarely do flowers, not because the icing won't hold up, but because I am a very bad flower maker! icon_redface.gif
