Do you mean icing for frosting cookies? If so, I think that can keep several days if not longer, just cover with plastic wrap so it isn't exposed to air.

Sorry, buttercream with a portion of shortening in it.
It says I can freeze it but I don't have that much freezer space and I'm worried about texture after it thaws.

Buttercream will keep for a week. You may need to hand mix once you bring it back to room temperature.

If you actually use butter in your buttercream, it's best stored in the refrigerator, and as sneezles said, it will last a week. If it's shortening only and no butter there's not a need to refrigerate it.

Thank you! If I can make it a week ahead of time that makes my life SO much easier.:D
