Here is wilton's recipe for pastry cream filling. Sounds good but I am doing a mmf covered cake and it usually doesnt do well in the fridge. Does this need to be refrigerated? The recipe doesnt mention it and some of their other recipes specifically say refrigerate.....Will be filling the cake tonight or tomorrow and it is for Friday night. What do you think?

In saucepan, blend all ingredients except vanilla. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture reaches the consistency of medium cream sauce. Remove from heat, add vanilla and cool quickly. To prevent a skin from forming, brush with melted butter. Stir before using.

Anyone have any other recipe for a creamy vanilla kind of filling that doesnt need refrigeration???

JanH I have seen you post a link to vanilla pastry cream filling in a past thread but the link doesnt work.....any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
