I'm making a cake for someone and they need it for Friday. I'll be giving it to them on Thursday and she doesn't have room in her fridge to put the cake (its three tiered). Will it be ok if it sits out overnight and has cream cheese icing for the filling??? Its going to be covered in fondant...Any thoughts????? icon_confused.gif

I wouldn't think that that would be a good idea.

Why don't you do a mock cream cheese filling using cream cheese pudding mix instead of actual cream cheese? It tastes just as good and can be left out of the fridge....

You can also use Bettercream mixed with cream cheese flavoring or pudding mix. Do a search for Bettercream here and you will get tons of ideas! I just bought a 5 gallon bucket fro $22.50 from Sam's Club and froze my leftovers. It gave me much more for my $ and was much cheeper than buying the frozen little containers at GFS.

I recently needed to make a cake with cream cheese icing that needed to stay on the counter due to space restrictions in the fridge, so here's what I came up with: I used indydebi's buttercream icing recipe (just started using it and won't use anything else from now on!!) and I mixed in one box of "Jello Cheese Cake" flavored instant pudding. We can't stop eating the stuff!! HTH ! I did have to add a little bit more milk.

Thanks! I thnk i'm going to try this. Ok, this may sound like a dumb question, but when you mixed in the box of instant pudding did you "make" the pudding first or just mix in the powder?

No, you do not need to make it first...just add it to the bettercreme. Since I've discovered bettercreme I've been useing it for EVERYTHING! I get to from the bakery at stop and shop. An 8lb carton is $15 and you just need to put it in your KA for 7 minutes on medium and it's done. You can add any flavor to it too. GL

No, dont make the pudding . I just throw in the pudding mix (powder) with my powdered sugar. With indydebi's buttercream recipe, you can really put it in at any stage. I swear you can't go wrong with her recipe if you want a crusting buttercream. I have never mixed the pudding with bettercream, but I have a bucket from Sam's in my freezer, so that might be my project for the evening!
