I have covered a cake before in qanache and i didn't use a crumb coat before, but in a cake decorating book yesterday it said to covered a cake with crumb coating and then poured the ganache over that. Is that how I should do my ganuche covered easter egg for easter ? Please let me know if you do this !!! Thanks for the help

You can do it with thinned ganache, it just makes the cake surface smoother so when you pour your ganache the bumps and lumps won't show.
