So, first off, I LOVE this recipe!! icon_biggrin.gif But, I always use my frosting within a day or two of being made, and don't usually have enough left over to save. Well, I have about two or three cups that I saved from a cake I did about a week ago. It's been covered, in the fridge. Is it still ok to use? How long does this frosting last in the refrigerator? I looked at the comments under the recipe and on the forums, and haven't been able to find my answer. Much thanks!! icon_smile.gif

Totally fine to use. I want to say I've read that Indy just leaves hers out of the fridge and has kept it longer than a week.

In the fridge, for me, I keep icing about a month. You can also freeze it. icon_smile.gif

Sure it is! Sugar acts as a preservative in American style buttercream.
