    If it is made with milk, yes
    If made with water, no
    keep it covered air tight either way till ready to use so it wont pick up any unwanted flavors.
    May be stored in the freezer for 2-3 weeks.
    Be sure to stir it up good before using.

    If they are eaten tomorrow NO. I make my frosting with water, I can not tell the difference between using water or milk in my frosting. My secret is beat the tar out of it and the flavoring.

    Could you ice them at the last minuite ? Otherwise just keep them in a cool place covered.

    I am just really skiddish about dairy, meat or other perishables left out for more than a couple hours.
    Would rather be safe than sorry.

    I've not had any problem with this kind of frosting unrefrigerated for a couple days.

    Ah, thank you all! I think I'll just make the frosting tomorrow and I know that the frosted cupcakes won't be around long! :)

    I have left it unrefrigerated for a few days with no problems. However, my buttercream frosting uses water.

  • RE: Does Buttercream Frosting Need to be Refrigerated?
    I make frosting by the gallons and I use to use milk but stopped because it didn't make a big difference in my frosting taste. But I have never had any problems with making it a day ahead and have never refrigerate the cupcakes or cakes. I prefer to make my decorated cakes, cupcakes, or cookies the day before. The icing gets a chance to set and my colors don't run.

    Does buttercream frosting get all hard the next day or is it still creamy and good to eat?
    False
