Hi,

Can I make icing three days before a party and store it in the refrigerator?  It is the Wilton buttercream recipe (shortening not butter).  How long do I take the icing out of the refrigerator before icing?

This recipe:   https://www.cakecentral.com/recipe/22469/2-icing  can be made up to a month ahead and it's much better than the one you mention.  After being frig'd let it come to room temp - about 30-60 minutes - then give it a good stir before using
