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

If its a heavily decorated cake and the icing doesnt need to be flawless then no. But I am slightly lazy grin

Thanks for replying wheredidiputit, do you chill 2nd layer before the fondant?

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.
