Do I need to crumb coat my cake before using RBC? First time I've ever used this and so far I love it....we'll all I've done is make it but it's seems like it will be easy to use.

Yes, I do crumb coat in BC first, then cover w/ RBC. My friends and family like the taste the best--as the two blend so well, and taste like BC w/ the advantages of fondant still. (I find it just a little harder to work w/ than Wilton or MMF--but the taste is worth it!) HTH

I definately agree = crumb coat it. You don't have to use b'cream........can use jam, jelly or piping gel if you prefere.

Thanks for your advice! I tried the RBC but just could not get it to work....I had so many cracks in it when I put it over the cake. I gave up and used regular butter cream.
