You can freeze both, but bring to room temp before re-whipping. Actually stirring it at room temp works perfectly.

I freeze buttercream too. I put it in a Tupperware container, cover the top tightly with plastic wrap, and put on the lid. It will keep for months in freezer. I try to thaw it in the fridge first before bringing it to room temp on the counter (still in the container). I don't know why - I guess I think that I am minimizing condensation that way, but whether or not I actually am, who knows?
