It's when you cover your cake in a thin coat of frosting and letting it set. It helps to keep the crumbs in place for when you go to actual frost the cake. "crumb coat" HTH icon_smile.gif

do a layer of icing (usually buttercream) and leave it to dry/ set before you do your final coat. that way you dont end up with crumbs all through your finished layer. =)
