Hi I have just finished crumb coating my cake which I am going to ice tomorrow. Where should I leave my crumb coat to dry. It's a basic buttercream.

Thank you x x

Just leave it out on the counter in a cool area, it will set.

And is it best to wait until tomorrow until covering it in the fondant?

It is best NOT to let a crumb coat dry before covering with fondant. It needs to be 'sticky/wet' for the fondant to stick to it. If you really need to wait to cover it, then you will need to lightly spray the crumb coat w/water to get it wet/sticky again.

Uhhh... Maybe the fact it says dumb coat, rather than crumb coat?
