I made Mucho Margarita cupcakes last Saturday. I had enough margarita icing left over for another batch, but I never got around to making the other batch. The icing has been sitting in a tightly sealed container in the fridge since Saturday. Do you think it would still be good, or should I just bin it?

I"d eat it too..... in fact, send it my way if you're really worried.

I am glad this is not about cobweb cupcakes.

And yes, I'd eat it!

I can't remember if this contains alcohol, but if it is mostly sugar and alcohol it'll be fine- both are natural preservatives.

YES. I have had cupcake icing in the fridge for weeks that tasted fine/didn't give me or my boyfriend any digestive issues. Sometimes the top dries out a little bit, but it won't hurt you or taste bad.

I'd eat it without thinking twice. We used to spread leftover frosting on graham crackers as treats.

I'd probably mix it a little before icing the cupcakes, but I'd definitely eat it!

I would DEFINITELY still eat it after a week in the fridge.

Frosting does not, in my experience, go bad very quickly at all. It doesn't seem to go bad any faster than its constituent parts.

If it's not covered in green fuzzy shiitake I'll always eat it. If you're particularly worried, just feed it to someone else and see if they die.

I'll eat almost anything after a week in the fridge if it still looks normal.

Yay! Frosting saved! I was going to prance around and chant "Eat It" until you did, but I guess that's not necessary now.
