I typically make my buttercream with shortening. I made a new recipe that is all butter. Does "butter" buttercream need to be refrigerated. I usually just leave my shortening based buttercreams out. Thank you for your help.

Not really. Lots of people dont' refrigerate butter or margarine.

I just noticed that the recipe has a little bit of milk in it. Does the sugar 'stablize' the milk in the icing or again do I need to refrigerate it b/c of the milk. Thank you much!!!
