My question is how long does a buttercream transfer stay once you put it on the cake. I have never tried one and would like to know this before I do. Any help would be great.
it's just frozen buttercream -- so it has a nice shelf life but you would apply it last minute though
It will stay in place as long as the cake is alive :)
Really, once placed it will not move, dissolve or de-construct :)

The deer and the 2 school mascots on the 2nd cake are transfers.
The only thing I found difficult was getting them turned over and on to the cake without them breaking and my fingers smearing them. Watch all the videos you can find and practice.
Really cool effect and fun.
