Oh your not lazy, not with that tardis you just madeI have to be honest i dont do that but i will in future as i think it gives a neater finish.
I would only do one crumb coat if I was going to put fondant on top - never heard of two layers, but I'm no expert
Depends. If its a heavily decorated cake and the icing doesnt need to be flawless then no. But I am slightly lazy
Thanks for replying wheredidiputit, do you chill 2nd layer before the fondant?
Yes.You put a thin layer of butter icing to cover the cake. Then once chilled for a few hours/over night. Then the thicker/top layer of butter icing.
When you crumb coated your cake before decorating, after it sets do you put another of buttercream on? Just wondered what you all do. TIA.
