To refrigerate or not

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When you make a cake with Swiss meringue or cream cheese frosting do you refrigerate if they will be out overnight? I normally do, but this time I have cupcakes and I'm a bit more concerned about the cupcakes drying out in the fridge than I would be about a fully iced cake. If the temp doesn't get high enough to melt the frosting should they still be safe the next day if left out?

Swiss meringue is shelf stable for up to 5 days without refrigeration. The cream cheese frosting depends on the recipe. My CC recipe uses enough sugar to act as a preservative, so it is shelf stable also. I have left cake at my house out for 5 days once that had a cream cheese frosting and it was fine. But again it does depend on your recipe.

Thanks Linda! I feel much better about leaving them out on the counter overnight.
