I just made pumpkin bars and iced them with an icing that contains 3 oz. of cream cheese and 1 stick of butter. Should I put the bars in the refrig? I know it changes the texture of bread, cake, whatever, so that is why I am asking. (I don't want the icing to spoil, though.) Thanks for your help.

I would refrigerate them if they are going to last for more than 24 hours.

They don't have to be refrigerated.

I would store it in the refrigerator, but take it out to warm to room temperature before serving.

Refrigerate them; the cream cheese starts getting rancid when it sits out too long.

I always thought the sugar makes it able to sit out the fridge? Bakeries always have carrot cakes sitting out. Perhaps they count on them being sold that day?

I've made pumpkin bars with cream cheese icing for years and have never put them in the fridge. Haven't gotten sick yet. (Knocking on wood)

My bakery keeps them in a display case that is chilled. I would not want to buy a cake that was left out at room temperature.

Would you be willing to post the recipe, please? They sound delicious!

My mom always taught me that anything with Pumpkin in it should be kept in the fridge - pumpkin can go bad pretty quick and I would think with cream cheese and butter, if it isn't going to be eaten within a couple of days, I would put it in the fridge.
