I'm probably the most green person on this site and for the world of cake decorating so please take that into consideration...I know you have to put a layer of buttercream between the crumb coat and fondant but could you use cream cheese frosting instead? I love cream cheese frosting so I'm hoping you'll say it will be just fine. But maybe I just need to give buttercream a try. Sometimes it can taste to commericalized. Know what I mean? But, probably just me.
Yeah I'm sure that would work just fine. The only thing I found with cream cheese icing is that it is soft and doesn't hold up as well as buttercream for decorating, smoothing,etc... I don't see why you couldn't use it for your crumb coat though.
Welcome...... cream cheese frosting will work fine. Just make it thicker than normal.
If you like you can check out a Crusting Wedding Cream cheese frosting I have posted in recipes. its a little thicker.
I've not done it, but I wouldn't hesitate....I see no reason why you couldn't.
I just made one with cream cheese frosting under the fondant! Worked great!
I have done this before and it was fine.
