I am baking dd's birthday cake and need to know if I can make the buttercream ahead of time and keepit in the fridge? Or will it go hard and not spreadable?

Yes, to both. You can make it in advance but you'll need to get it out of the fridge before you need it so it will soften again.

Thanks so much! If I make it now and want to ice the cake this afternoon could I just leave it out or will it go too soft?

leave it out unless it's really warm where you are

NB if you are using marg ratehr than actual butter it'll stay spreadable even in the fridge
