I know everyone does what works for them, but I still need guidance.

Do you refrigerate after you fill and stack each tier? Do you fill/stack layers of each tier and then refrigerate before crumb-coating or crumb-coat after refrigerating once more?

I feel like my dam and filling are not firm enough to be spreading crumb-coats. My cakes are not too fluffy, but they are not that dry/sturdy!

Your opinions are appreciated! icon_wink.gif

Personally I like to fill the cakes, then put a crumb coat layer. Then I place them in the fridge. It usually works fine.

As long as your filling doesn't have to be refrigerated, you don't HAVE to refrig. I never do.... never crumb coat either. Just my opinion, I think it's a waste of time, one step I can avoid. I do use the wax paper method and the outer crumb layer comes off with that.

Hi Jen,

Would you briefly explain the wax paper method please ... I've never heard of that one here on CC. TIA

The wax paper method is in her dvd.

I refrigerate my cakes all the time... even during the process.
