I am using a crusting buttercream. I just got a new refrigerator just for cakes (Mother's Day present). I filled and crumbcoated a cake and put it in the refrigerator. When it is time to ice the cake do I have to let it come to room temperature before icing?
Will a cold cake affect how the icing crusts. I usually don't refrigerate my crumbcoats, so I never thought about this, but now that I have the room I figured why not.
I don't mean to sound dense, but this has been a very hectic week and I'm running on about 4 hours of sleep a night and have to make it through Saturday on the same schedule. Any help is always appreciated. Thanks
I crumbcoat my cake, freeze it and then ice the cake frozen.
You should probably be fine.
I let mine come to room temp before I ice them. I have never tried with them cold or frozen.
