I just made an amazing cake and covered it a layer of dirty icing. Stuck it in the fridge overnight, although it was too big to cover. I have done this before and never had a problem. This morning it smells a little like something in the fridge. My husband thinks it smell fine, but I am worried it will taste funny.
My question is if I scrape off some of the frosting and put a fresh coat on, will that fix the problem? Or do you think the cake absorbed it too???

Yeah just scrape off the icing and do it again. Nothing is too big to cover. Just use two or three widths of cling wrap or foil and get it covered.

This is why I don't refrigerate my cakes. Did it have a perishable filling? If not, there isn't much reason to refrigerate.

Mug-a-bug: Have you found a non-perishable buttercream that tastes good. I finally found one that I love up it calls for 2-3 tblsp. of whipping cream. Which, I guess, need refrigeration. If you have a recipe that you love, could you share it? Thanks!

I use sugarshack's recipe. She uses hot coffee creamer as the liquid but you can use anything (even milk) without needing to refrigerate. I'm no scientist but it has something to do the with the sugar preserving the milk. Here is a link to an article that can explain it a lot better than me: Hope that helps! thumbs_up.gif
