Hi all,
I'm just wondering how long I can keep the BC for? I need to do a crumb layer before bed, will the BC be ok when I get up to complete the rest of the icing? If so, how should I store it? Its a crusting BC.

Also, do you have to put BC or Ganache on before fondant? My mum used to brush the cake with strawberry jam (jello?) before laying the fondant on.....
