If I use a large icer tip does that cover well enough to not need a crumb coat? Do YOU still use one? Thanks!

I don't use a crumb coat when using this method. The icing is thick enough.

I rarely crumbcoat anymore after viewing SugarShacks video.. just only when icing is being weinified LOL .. if it seems like it isn't sticking I will go ahead and put a VERY thin.. almost not a crumbcoat.. just a smear of icing all the way around the cake

I always use the icer tip (love it!!)

The only time I use a crumb coat under it is when I am doing a carved or 3D cake... just to help give it a definite shape before I put the icing on.

But it puts enough icing on the cake that you can smooth and still have a nice thickness on the cake.

I like to use a crumb coat when I'm frosting a chocolate cake with white (or light colored) icings. I know I'm paranoid, but I've been plagued with crumbs before. I also use the icer tip always too.
