Buttercream filler recipe

Do you think they will be okayin the fridge for a week and a bit?
1 week is how long it will last in the fridge. I like to do 5-6 days tops. You can freze it, but 1 week is what I have read is the longest in the fridge. Hope this helps.
Thank-you...I have read I week as well but you can't always trust everything you read.
How is icing once you freeze it?? Is it runny at all?Does it depend on the icing?
