Can my colour of crumb coat be in a different colour to the top colour. ie can i have a white buttercream frosting and then finish the top off in red and blue, or am i better off using the same colour crumb coat as the top colour?

As long as the cover icing is thick/dark enough to cover, it doesn't really matter.

As long as there would not be a bright conflict on a cut piece, like purple under red and white-kinda weird.

The only time I change my crumbcoat color is if I will be pouring ganache over the BC, then I tint my BC brown so it doesn't show thru

I crumbcoat in white all the time. Let it chill before adding your outer layer. I never have a problem with it coming through thumbs_up.gif

I'm with you Jenn. I still have a problem with chocolate though. I think the answer is to make sure you put enough icing on so the spatula won't touch the cake. I hope that is right.
