Hi there! I just have a quick question and hope you lovely CC-era can answer it for me. After you frost a cake and refrigerate until it's rock hard, and after you take it out, do you spritz your cake with water before covering it with fondant so the fondant would adhere to the buttercream? Please let me know. Thanks so much!

p.S. I've been using cream cheese icing to cover my cake and it's so frustrating that I can never get the smooth look (without fondant). I've cried myself to sleep so many times due to the frustrations

I spritz mine with water, I find that I get less air bubbles as you work from top to bottom,  and less taring,  and it help the fondant stick to the sides.

What I learned yrs ago was that a cake is covered w/fondant as soon as the b'cream coating has been applied.  There is no need to get it cold/hard therefore you would not need to spritz it.
