Since cream cheese is dairy, I would advice it be refrigerated. However I have left a cake covered with cream cheese frosting out for a few hours in a cool room and it does fine. As far as whipped cream, here in my area (CALIFORNIA, USA) we have a non-dairy whipped cream that I use and doesn't need to be refrigerated. Otherwhise, BC or Fondant cupcakes don't need refrigeration. (In my opinion)

I would imagine they DO use cream cheese, but the cakes probably sell way before they need to go back in the fridge! And same as previous poster said, I imagine non-dairy whipped cream is used for the cream topped cakes.

My question about shows like cupcake wars is that they never tie their hair up, it drives me crazy, how can you bake/cook without tying back your hair?

I know what you mean!

A) Having my hair dangling in my face is really annoying, and b) hardly hygienic as they will undoubtedly fall off now and again, right into your cake batter icon_eek.gif
