Default Have to refrigerate frosting?

Hi. I have a frosting recipe that calls for butter, sugar and milk.
Just beat it together and that's it. My question is: if there is
uncooked butter and milk in the frosting, then how can you leave it at
room temp for much time at all? Can you? Are these cupcakes going to
have to stay in the fridge at all times? Thanks.

A typical powdered sugar frosting with butter and milk is fine to leave
unrefrigerated for a couple of days.

My questions is, do you flavor this at all? Vanilla, maybe?

The sugar acts as a preservative.

THere is virtually no available moisture in the mixture for bacteria to
feed off of, and sugar, like salt, helps preserve things.

If the cupcakes are any good, they won't be around long enough to
consider storage options. "-) They'll be fine at room temp.

As a rule, especially if the weather is hot, yes.Most buttercream should be
refrigerated. But the amount of sugar acts as a spoilage retardant. I would
keep them in a cool place but only for a couple of days.
