i'm sure there are a thousand of them out there, but i just need the technique for a good crumbcoat icing.
I just use my plain 'ol buttercream icing. There are a whole bunch of different recipes for it under the recipes link.
Sorry, i just realized you were asking about technique. There are many posts about this. I would search under crumb coating.
You can use ANY buttercream your frosting your cake with - sometimes I need to thin it a little but rarely ..
HTH and good luck!
if you go on you tube there are some videos. but really, its just a crumb coat, fill in any holes and gaps, and slap it on. thats how i do it! then worry about a perfect final bc layer/ fondant layer!
well, i kind of thought that direction, to be honest i've never even used it. my BC comes out pretty smooth and crumbless, and i already use the high density foam roller to smooth it (best idea i've heard!), but reading alot of topics, it seems lots of people use the crumb coat. thanks for all the help!
Just use your buttercream! Here's the absolute best one! It's from our very own CC member.
You'll never use anything else!!
I use the liquid creamer instead of mixing the powder and water/flavoring...it works much better and the consistancy is dreamy!
