But wouldn’t it get awfully cold and hard sitting in the refrigerator?
On the other hand, Sara Lee seems to get away with that.
So immediately I ran off to Google the problem. Cream cheese frosting refrigerate?
And immediately, I had the answer. Yes. But take it out an hour or two before serving.
It occurs to me that Google has replaced not only common sense but also those spur-of-the-moment calls to cousins and those home ec queens among friends, who a decade or so I ago I’d have relied on.
The answer might not have come as efficiently. My info source might have had to consult a cookbook or another friend. But in the process, I’d have found out that they had just had a fender bender or the flu or picked up a juicy piece of news.
I like these instant answers, but there’s something lost in all this efficiency – unless, of course, the info source is also on Facebook. In which case, I suppose I would not have missed a beat.
