I don't usually use cream cheese icing on or in my cakes because I have always been under the impression that it requires refrigeration; but so many of the cakes on CC seem contain cream cheese icing. How do you make that work - working on a cake that has to sit out so long that is iced or filled in a cream cheese icing? Thanks in advance for your help.

I usually refrigerate my cakes. I've had it sit for more than 12 hours and no one got sick.
