Does a crusting cream cheese buttercream frosting need to be refrigerated? I love Edna's recipe, but stopped making it as there was never enough room in the fridge for a cake.

that is the million dollar question.. some people say yes.. some say no. I had searched the web to try to find this answer before and it drove me insane.. Most of them say you can leave it out for a few hours... then you should refriderate.

I do know that it will hold up in hot weather for a about 5 hours and is just fine. I have read other reviews on it and some people ice their cakes let it dry/settle for a few hours, decorate, cover and leave out over nite (if you have AC of course) , and deliver next day and it is fine.

I wish someone could give a definite answer to this question. icon_mad.gif

Earlene Moore's cream cheese frosting doesn't need to be refrigerated. Her recipe is on her website.

Since Edna never refrigerates her cakes I'm going to say "no".

You're welcome. thumbs_up.gif I've seen her post several times that she never refrigerates her cakes once they're filled, so I thought.........I know the answer to this question icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks, Mamawrobin! I tried to email Edna, but I couldn't get the button to work. Her recipe rocks, by the way!
