I am going to attempt (for the first time) a frozen buttercream transfer to create a character for the top of a cake. I'm wondering how long I can keep it frozen once it's complete? I freeze SMBC all the time in containers so I know it keeps fine that way, but once the transfer is piped onto the wax paper, should I cover it with something or just keep it uncovered in the freezer until I'm ready to use it (if I'm lucky enough to have it turn out as hoped)?
The reason I'm asking is that I want to make it a few days in advance of completing the cake, just in case it doesn't turn out and I have to go to plan B (which is either try making another one, or try to find someone who can do an edible printout for me).
(yes, I should be more optimistic about my abilities, but it IS something new for me)
AHello, just recently there was a lady on here who did her frozen transfer a few weeks ahead of time and it turned out fine.
Thanks kazita! That helps a lot!
