To Refrigerate or Not to Refrigerate that is the Question

by Jessica
(Kelowna BC Canada)

Hi there I was going to make your Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Filling for a 4 tiered cake that I was going to cover with fondant. I will be making 2 out of the 4 tiers 2 days ahead and the other 2 tiers the day before the cake is due.

Does the Chocolate Fudge need to be refrigerated or will it be fine for a day or two?

Also can you recommend which of you buttercream recipes stand up to "sitting out"
Thanks so much!

Buttercream Recommendations
by: Michelle (admin)

Hi Jessica,

The chocolate fudge buttercream should be fine for that amount of time.

Most of the buttercream recipes will be OK out of the fridge for 1-2 days. The only ones I would not recommend, would be the ones that use eggs or cream, like:
Whipped lemon mousse (contains eggs)
Key Lime Pie filling (contains eggs)
Extra rich chocolate buttercream (contains cream)
