I'm making a cake covered with fondant. Usually I do buttercream cakes and I crumb coat them first then I frost them. With fondant, do you crumb coat, frost, and then roll the fondant on, or just skip the crumb coat and lay the fondant on top of the frosting? Thanks!!! Stefanie
Not everyone crumbcoats but many do. I suggest you do what you are comfortable with.
I do a crumbcoat that's a little bit thicker than normal, nothing else. If you get too much buttercream, it is harder to get sharp lines on your cake. The buttercream will "squish" around under the fondant.
Hope this helps out!
