hi there!

im a newbie in this wonderful world of cake decorations. i have my first order for a birthday cake and im planning to use a swiss meringue buttercream. my questions are:

- could i use the swiss meringue buttercream under a fondant as a crumb coat and as a filling? if so, how long is the shelf life of the frosted cake? and where could i keep the frosted cake?

thanks so much for the help!

Yes smbc can go under fondant just fine. Since smbc is butter based it needs to be stored in the fridge. Just take the cake out so it can go to room temperature before serving
