I wanted to make the frosting tonight because when I made this before it had this weird after taste that didn't go away until a day after. So basically this is the kind of frosting that needs to sit a day or so before it tastes really good.

I was going to put the frosting in plastic sealed container and leave it on the counter top until Wednesday morning.


It's also on the back of the Hershey container.

Also could I make the cake as well tonight, and also have it sitting on the counter unfrosted until Wednesday morning? It will be under a plastic cake dome on the counter.

The milk in the frosting would concern me. I leave my butter at room temp, so as long as you're using real butter, that shouldn't be a problem. Can you mix all the other ingredients and then wait to add the milk at the end to thin it out and get a better spreadable consistency?

Apparently, yes. https://oureverydaylife.com/long-can...out-22491.html

But, even though I don't bake, if the frosting had "this weird after taste that didn't go away until a day after", I'd be looking for another chocolate butter cream frosting recipe.

I would leave it in a sealed container without worrying about it. With that much butter and sugar as preservatives, the milk isn't going to go bad in a hurry.

Saibot is correct, there's enough sugar to keep that amount of milk from spoiling at room temp.

You should be just fine. I understand your wanting to get things out of the way. Think of it this way,when you bake a cake you do not worry about leaving it out for a few days. This is the same, the frosting just hasn't been put on the cake yet.

Hershey’s is real chocolate. It’s cocoa powder.

I agree.

Hershey’s cocoa powder has the least cocoa butter of any cocoa powder on the market. 11% fat. A good one is 20% to 22% fat. Hershey’s is industrial engineered to maximize profit. In Europe, it couldn’t legally be sold as chocolate since it doesn’t have enough cocoa butter.
