Re-stickify... for lack of a better term LOL.

After after crumb coating a cake with crusting BC which is to be covered in fondant, does it work to lightly mist the cake with water to 're-stickify' the BC that has crusted? So that the fondant sticks? Or should I lightly re-coat with fresh BC and work quickly with the fondant?

I lightly mist as per a suggestion on here and it worked beautifully, I used it both on buttercream and ganache. I would rather do that than re-apply another coat of buttercream.

I have used a bit of piping gel on top the crust BC. I HATE doing that, it get gooey on the bottom. I will try the water mist method next time.
