If you buy the Hunt's Snack Pack pudding that does not require refrigeration, it can sit out for many hours. Other puddings made with perishable ingredients would have about 3 hours max at room temp. icon_smile.gif

I used the snack pack pudding on the last cake I made, just for the family here at home, the chocolate. It set out for a couple days before it was gone and it was fine

Actually I really wouldn't have thought of it either lol, but I was at the store and was going to buy just some instant pudding, and the snack pack pudding caught my eye and I thought, hmmmm!! Anything to save time lol! But it worked out great icon_biggrin.gif So I just "accidently" figured it out icon_lol.gif

I used the snack pudding and is was out for three days and it was fine. The kind you have to make I wouldn't leave out that long.

I'm almost embarrassed to say this, but what the heck--it's cyberspace.

My husband has brought cake with pudding filling (the instant pudding whipped with 1/2 milk, 1/2 whipping cream) to work and those guys just cut into it, NEVER stick it in the fridge and nosh on it for a good 3 days. I was shocked and repulsed, but not a one got sick, even remotely. My husband (who is VERY picky) swears it was just as good on day 3 as it was on day 1. He has done this a couple times, even though I begged him to stick it in the fridge.

I would NOT recommend this--just thought I'd let you know I hadn't killed anyone yet with pudding gone bad.

Good luck!

Well, you've got my curiosity up now. I decided to go to the source and find out just how long it can safely be left out unrefrigerated once opened. I'm hoping to hear back within a couple of days. As soon as I do, I'll let everyone know what Hunt's has to say. Geeeeez, I sure hope they say "3 days" lol

Even though no one got sick the times that a cake has been left out, would you really want to risk that if it shouldn't be left out that long??
I think that once you open a pudding cup it needs to be refrigerated.
Of course, SquirrellyCakes has posted some awesome information about this subject... http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-3618-pudding.html

my wilton instructor suggested that we use snack packs so i filled one of my cakes with a vanilla pudding that didn't have any dairy in it... i made the cake on sunday, frosted it and then we had class monday night so i decorated a little and did the rest on tuesday... i ate a piece on thursday and my husband brought the rest of the cake to work on friday and they all loved it, they want me to make more so i guess it'll last quite awhile

This was a topic of discussion once before that I know of. Someone on this site, and I have no idea who, contacted the manufacturer of the pudding and was told that it should be refrigerated immediately upon opening. I would be very careful about leaving it sitting out, especially if someone else was going to be the one eating it.
