Milk-based glaze; refrigerate the cake?

I just made a beautiful apple-pecan cake, and put a vanilla glaze on it. The cake won't be eaten until tomorrow. Since there's milk in the glaze, will I need to refrigerate the cake tonight? Thanks--
I've never even considering doing that. I've always left mine out and never had a problem. It should be fine.
Assuming this is a very sweet glaze, as they usually are, the sugar is more than enough preservative for at least a couple of days unless it's very warm and while the cake would probably taste OK out of the fridge, it will probably taste better for not being refrigerated - they usually do anyway...
