When you are doing a fruit filling, do you do the crum coat and then the filling and then stack it so the filling doesnt blead into the cake? Thanks!

Yes, I generally do. Just a very, very thin coat of icing and honestly I'm not sure if it makes that much difference, but it makes me feel better.

mmm . . . it's impossible to do the crumb coat prior to filling and stacking.

Waitaminit. Are you actually asking whether to spread a thin layer of bc filling on the layer and then a layer of fruit filling, then stack then crum coat?

If so, then "yes."

I knew about the dam part but I was just checking if I should put a thin coat of bc before the fruit filling, because my first cake I did I put the fruit filling right on the cake and the cake absorbed it all and there wasnt much filling left when we ate it.
