AJust wondering...

Do you guys bake your cakes, let them cool then put them in the fridge before crumb coating? Or do you just let the cool and crumb coat? What do you find best?

I cool mine on the counter, cut them, wrap them, then put in fridge overnight.

Hi, I usually bake my cakes, let them cool down on the counter at least overnight and work with them from there on. I haven't had issues doing this before crumb coating but I will try your idea on cutting them in shape, wrap them and freeze them. Here is South Africa the weather is hot this time of year. After crumb coating I normally put them in the freezer just to let the butter cream icing to set before I use the fondand.

Thanks for that 'tip', I will try it out and see if it will work along with our type of weather.

Im also in South Africa and I let mine cool on the counter,  cut, wrap  and freeze until the next day. I find that this gives me a very sturdy cake to work with and virtually crumb free!
