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!

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!
