I'm going to try my first Frozen Buttercream Transfer (FBCT).
How far in advance can I place it on the cake and how do I store the cake after that?

I was hoping to decorate the cake on Saturday and the family party
is early Sunday afternoon. It's an hour drive to the venue and then
approx 2 hours until the cake cutting. I'm hoping it will be ok but if you don't think it will be I will do my Plan B cake idea.

Thanks in advance for your advice - it is always appreciated icon_smile.gif

I've never had to make any special storing arrangements because of FBCT. I just store the cake as I normally would. Once the FBCT is on the cake it will thaw, but that's ok. The reason for freezing in the first place is to make it hard and so it will release from the paper/plexiglass or whatever it's on. Once it's on the cake, treat it as you would any other buttercream decoration.
