I would refrigerate and what are you using for stacking
I too love french buttercream so rich and smooth and elegant. Yes taste like smbc and imbc. I love them all!!!!
I freeze any imbc, smbc or abc, etc. I keep r/i in the fridge. I make all ahead of time and it is ready for my cakes. It makes decorating day so much enjoyable.
I use the smaller and thinner skewers , when i make stand up figures. I model them on a styrofoam block, the hight of the cake and i make sure it goes thru the 3" or 4" styrofoam. That way, i know it will go to base of cake. This is very important to me. If i make them sitting, i take it thru the neck part of body(Head goes on the part that stick up) and bottom to the base.

I have a few cakes in pics that show this. hth       http://cakecentral.com/a/how-to-make-a-fondant-loop-bow
I love smbc. If you know how to use amb, then you can make anything with smbc. I make flowers like you can with amb. I sat in a demo at ices convention. The chef  made all kinds of flowers right on the cake with smbc or imbc. Make same borders as if you were using amb. At least that is what i can do with it. I can make the regular rose, not the ribbon, but making it with rows of petals. You just need to know how to make it at all, and the make it using your smbc. . i...
