I make chiffon cakes frosted with buttercream icing a lot. If you're worried about the delicacy of the cake, you might want to do a crumb coat first...then refrigerate it until the frosting sets, and continue with another thin layer of frosting and then decorate. Good luck! P.S. You can take a look at some of my photos....many are chiffon with bc.
