Is there a certain buttercream that I should use for a Frozen Buttercream Transfer? Is there one that I shouldn't? Is one recipe better for this than another?

Thanks for any and all help.

Very much appreciated.

According to the tutorial in the articles section it is best to use a bc recipe that it atleast 1/2 butter to shortening ratio so that the transfer can release from the wax paper better.

Here's the link to the article and there's a link to the recipe she uses in it as well.

Does anyone know if this recipe (the one with the tutorial) would also be a good one to cover the cake too?

Thank you.


indydebi - Does your icing have to be refrigerated before and after putting it on a cake? Or not at all.

Thank you.

I never refrigerate my cakes ... iced or not. Never refrigerate the icing. The only time it is placed in a "cold" place is when I'm making FBCT's. Once it's on the cake ... it's on the counter until pick up.
