i wanted to check if this was a good idea before I did it. I am making a buttercream tiered cake and was going to put Clair bowman's cake lace and on it, which I know works.

BUT I want to then put the cake in the fridge for all the buttercream to harden before transporting the cake. Does anyone know how this will affect the cake lace? If it goes soft that's fine. But if it completely melts into goopy pile around the cake that would be disaster. 

Thanks in advance

I do it all the time.  I ice and chill cakes until firm. I use a damp paper towel to pat the back of the lace pieces then attach them.  My cakes stay in the cooler right up to delivery and it has no effect on the lace.
