I just did a crumb coating of my favorite peanut butter frosting, but it's not a crusting recipe. The last time I tried to put the final coating over this, all it did was pull off the crumb coating.
How can I prevent this from happening? Can you crumb coat a non-crusting frosting? Please help ASAP, as I will need to put the rest of the frosting on now, if I don't wait for tomorrow.
last time you did it, did you refrigerate the crumb coated cake? I use SMBC and crumb coat, then put in the fridge to harden...then once it's hardened a little, I take it back out and cover. Also, you want to be sure your buttercream is not too stiff.
This is not SMBC, but a peanut butter frosting with butter and PB. Do you think I should refrigerate it over night?
You should only have to refrigerate for maybe 20 or 30 minutes before it's hard enough to coat. Good luck with it!
thanks! I'll do exactly that tomorrow!
This worked like a dream! I chilled the cake with the initial crumb coating, and then applied the final coat. Worked absolutely perfectly! Thank you!
So glad to hear it! You're very welcome
