Will a frozen buttercream transfer applied to a cake and then refrigerated for 2 days be ok? or ok to be left in the box??

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I never refrigerate my buttercream cakes, but I don't use perishable fillings. I use Indydebi's recipe which is a crusting buttercream. A FBCT is just buttercream, so I don't refrigerate that either.

FBCT on their own is fine for a long time, but it would tend to bleed if you transfer it onto your cake. It is best that you keep your cake in the fridge and add the transfer when ready. Good luckicon_smile.gif

Once on your cake, your transfer is like any other buttercream decorations. So if you would normally put a buttercream decorated cake in the fridge and haven't had any issues then you are fine.

Because I live in a very humid area I do not put any of my cakes in the fridge, but I also don't use fillings that need to go in it.
