Step 2: Crumb Coat
Stack your cakes with your preferred filling. I like using buttercream as a ring on the outside with a filling in the middle, but you do you. I prefer to make an American Buttercream using the recipe below, but again, make the type of frosting you like to eat. After you have stacked the cakes, it’s time to give them a good crumb coat.
- 3 sticks softened butter
- 1 1/2 lbs. powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract (or another extract if you want additional flavor)
- 2-3 Tbsp. heavy cream or milk
