I´ve read some recipes and other q&a´s on here and some of you mention crumb coating a cake
what is and how do i do that?
Also does anyone have some decent recipes for a 9 1/2 inch and 10 1/2 inch cake pan as i´m only used to using smaller pans and can´t find any cookbooks here in spain in english
A crumb coating is just spreading a really thin layer of buttercream over the whole cake and letting it crust. This will hold in the crumbs so that when you go to put your final layer of frosting on you won't get any crumbs in it. You have to be kind of gentle when spreading though or you'll pick up crumbs anyway. I like to refrigerate or freeze my cake for 15-20 min. after I crumb coat and then it's not so touchy. Good luck. I've never heard of those size pans so I can't be of any help there.
