Does anyone know how far in advance you can make a frozen buttercream transfer. I would like to make it a few days ahead of time, the instructions say they have made it 24 hrs prior , I would like to make it further ahead than that. Any experience in this????

I have done them 2 days ahead and they turned out great. I don't see why you couldn't do them 3-4 days.

I least you would know it is frozen solid when you go to apply it. Won't have to move quite as quick! Go for it!

I've done them up to a week before and they were fine.

I've also made them and put it on the cake within the hour (time crunch!)and it was fine too!

I read somewhere (and I cannot find the post now, of course) that there's someone who does a few way in advance (like months) and keeps them for quick cakes. She does this with the current popular kids things: Spider-man, Iron Man, Barbie, etc. I guess she freezes them for a few hours til good to go and then pops them in a freezer bag til needed.

I did one 2 weeks before I needed it and it worked great! It is the Cardinal baseball one in my pics. I knew I had a busy week the week I needed it, so I just did it ahead of time. No problems. HTH

I made the Little Mermaid cake in my photos with a FBCT made two weeks before needing it. I made it on a piece of plexiglass, froze it, and then covered it in a couple of layers of saran, popped it in the back of the freezer, and two weeks later I used it on the cake. No problems.

Thanks everyone! I suspected it could be done just needed the reassurances of successful transfers! You all ROCK on this site!!!!
