I am fairly new to cake decorating (decorating being more than slapping store bought icing on).

Someone mentioned something called crumb coating to me today. I was wondering if anyone here knew what it was and maybe could tell me how to do it?

I know it is probably a stupid question. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Also, thank you in advance for any answers.

A crumb coat is a thin coat of icing that you put on the cake to "lock" any cake crumbs in place. Once it is set, you do the final, thicker coat of icing. The crumb coat keeps crumbs from being in that final perfect coat of icing. Tonedna has a great tutorial on You Tube demonstrating this method.
