I have a large buttercream wedding cake coming up, and due to the size of the opening of the back of my SUV I will have to stack the top two tiers on site. The borders need to be painted gold. I'm hoping I can spray the borders with edible freeze spray and then paint with edible gold/vodka.

Has anyone had any success / tips for using freeze spray with buttercream?

I've never heard of it, unless you are talking about the chocolate stuff used for making the velvet look.  No experience what so ever.

Why do you think you need to freeze the b'cream in order to paint it?  I would just go ahead  & paint away w/o anything.

yeah — room temp it paints up perfect — but what kind of buttercream?

i’ve never painted cooked flour icing aka French buttercream (the non-egg yolk fbc) and I can’t remember painting on swiss meringue but I might have, probably  did  — I know I air brushed on  swiss —

so buttercream made with powdered sugar paints up great — and italian bc takes paint ok too —

Oh, I misread or didn't understand.  I agree that there is no need for the buttercream to be frozen.
