If I'm covering a cake with fondant - does it make a difference if I use a "crusting" buttercream icing or a non-crusting BC to ice the cake before laying the fondant on? I would think that the fondant wouldn't stick well to a crusted BC.....What do you think?

If the buttercream crusts, you will need to lightly spritz it with water before putting the fondant on. You won't have that problem with a non-crusting buttercream.
