    Diane,
    If you are going to make the cake and serve it sometime during the day, I think you are safe to leave it out. But, to be on the safe side, I would suggest refrigeration.

    I made this cake for our family dinner yesterday-EVERYONE loved it!!!!. However the cheese filling sorta of cooked into the cake-not as much of it as your photo shows. Not sure where I went wrong,but I will make it again!! DELICIOUS!!
