Yup. It freezes very well and keeps for a long time. Just make sure to isolate it from the outside air of the freezer to prevent unwanted flavors from infusing into the icing.

Buttercream & cream-cheese icings, mousse fillings, and chocolate glazes can all freeze successfully. The butterfat content helps keep their (fairly dense) textures smooth & creamy throughout the freezing/defrosting stages. The bane in freezing any mixture is the formation of large ice crystals.
