I am new to cake making and have made my roses in advance. How do I store them? I'm planning on frosting & decorating tomorrow. Should I put the roses in the fridge? I used Wilton's decorator icing to make my roses.

How come American bc does not need refrigeration? even if you use butter or milk/cream? is it because the ps acts as a preservative. This is a really good thing to know. icon_smile.gif

The sugar binds the water (that's in the milk) and then there's no where for the bacteria to grow. Now, I'm sure you can't leave it our forever, but a couple of weeks is fine. And butter doesn't actually have to be refrigerated anyway.

Thank you, that's going in my tip/reference file.
