Can someone please tell me, can Mary Kay frosting be left out at room temp for a day? I used it to frost a red velvet cake and would rather not put the cake in the fridge if I dont have to.

Thanks!!!

What is Mary Kay frosting?

I've never heard of a Mary Kay frosting before, but I'm assuming since it's for a red velvet cake, it's a cream cheese frosting? If so, depends on the recipe. Sugar preserves the frosting for a while, but it would depend on the ratio of cream cheese to sugar. I'd err on the safe side of refrigerating it.

Yes it can be. My family only uses this recipe and we've never refridgerated the cake.

For those who wonder what it is. here is a link to the recipe on CC.

I just always knew that icing to be the "cooked red cake frosting" - never knew it had a name! icon_lol.gif

We've never called it "Mary Kay Icing" icon_lol.gif My grandmother use to make that cake 45 years ago and we just called it "red velvet cake icing" I so prefer it over cream cheese icing on Red Velvet cake. I think it compliments the red velvet cake perfectly.

I agree, no refrigeration required. thumbs_up.gif
