Here is the tutorial: http://cakecentral.com/articles/73/how-to-create-a-frozen-buttercream-transfer

As for how long it can stay frozen for. I've seen varying thoughts from 24 hours to a week or more. I think it depends on how well your cover it when storing in the freezer. Although I haven't done one, I would say 2-3 days should be ok, just cover it well (maybe put in a plastic bag, while still on the board).

I think that's what she meant when she said 2-3 days. I wouldn't keep it in there any longer than that, especially uncovered. All the random odors from your freezer are going to soak up into it.

If you haven't done one before, I'd recommend doing a practice one, since there's a little bit of a learning curve involved.

Good luck icon_smile.gif

Overnight is fine. I've never had to leave one in longer than that. Good luck. icon_smile.gif

You can leave it in there for days or more. Just make sure that you cover the transfer very well after it is frozen with plastic wrap or put it in a zip lock bag so it can't pick up odors.
