Buttercream Icing with Cream Cheese Filling - How long can it stay at room temp?

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

I have a groom’s cake that was iced with cream cheese flavored buttercream, but filled with real cream cheese filling. How long can it safely stay out at room temperature? The recipe I used is this:

8 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup butter

4 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 tbsp meringue powder

1 tbsp vanilla

Everything I have read about cream cheese frosting says 2 hrs. Keep in mind that includes the time you have it out to bring to room temperature yo make the frosting.
