How long do you thaw your cakes before you put the crumb coat on? Then how long after you crumb coat do you wait to put the fondant on? I don't want me fondant to sweat.

Thank you

Hi, I thaw the cake completely in the fridge, maybe overnight. Then take it out from the fridge in the morning, for it to come to room temperature. After crumbcoating, I don't put it in the fridge. Just roll the fondant out and cover the cake. icon_smile.gif

I've crumbcoated a cold cake before. It was probably thawed on the counter for just 5 hours. I've also covered a cake with fondant that just cake out from the fridge. No problems at all. I think it depends on your location and fridge.
