I don't see why this cake recipe is different than any other. Why do you think it has to be refrigerated?

As for the cream cheese icing, you will get several posts that state you can't leave cream cheese out for more than 2 hours and others that state you can leave it out over night. I would do what you feel comforable with.

There are also about 1000 threads about putting fondant covered cakes in the refrigerator. Once again, half say yes and half say no. I use Fondarific fondant. Because of different fillings (like cream cheese) I put the fondant covered cakes in the refrigerator all the time without any problems. Have you ever tried it?
