i will be making a crusting cream cheese buttercream for a cake i am making. does the cake need to be refrigerated after it is iced and decorated? i thought i read somewhere that it did not because the powdered sugar acts as a preservative for the cream cheese. any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated......laura

I asked Edna about it and she said she has left hers overnight I believe and it was ok. I actually just made a cake using cream cheese buttercream from Ednas site. I left it for 24 hours unrefrigerated with no problems.

I think it should be ok. I've left some cuppies out overnight which were frosted with cream cheese frosting and had no problems.

you're fine without refrigeration. The sugar, tons of it, will do a good job of keeping everything fresh.

i have used the crusting cream cheese icing on several occasions. as far as remaining fresh.........that was no problem, but the frosting got really, really "soft". It still looked beautiful and tasted great, it just doesn't stay as............crisp? a buttercream.......My opinion!!
