If I mix fresh strawberry puree in buttercream will it be ok at room temperature for a few days? I've got an order for strawberry cupcakes, but will have to make them a day and a half ahead of time. I've got strawberry flavoring, but thought fresh puree might be a nice addition. What do you think?

I put mine in the fridge until I need it.

Do you think strawberery jam would be any better?

I would think the fridge would be best until soon before you use it. Fresh strawberries are pretty fragile. I have used many preserves in buttercream and they taste yummy. My fave is apricot/pineapple preserves. Tangy yet sweet.

I mix raspberry jam into buttercream and it can stay out for a couple of days.

Ok, so if I've made my frosting with strawberry flavoring tonight and frost the cupcakes tomorrow, I'd be ok if I added in some strawberry jam then as well.

So frost (with strawberries) on Thursday night
Delivery on Friday
Eat on Saturday with possible left overs on Sunday

Is that safe with organic Jam with no perservatives?

It should be okay. I don't see why not when you are delivering them on Friday. I have never had a customer complain about the buttercream mix when using preservative.
