Depending on the recipe you used, it may be just fine without refrigeration. What recipe did you use? If it does need to go in the fridge, then you can put it in the fridge in a tupperware container with the lid on tightly. If the icing becomes stiff from being in the fridge, just beat it with your mixer to get it smooth and fluffy again. HTH!

Sure, you can use a bowl with saran wrap.

The icing will be just fine sitting out. The sugar acts as a preservative, so there is no worry of spoilage; but I would cover with saran wrap or a plate that covers the circumference of the bowl.
