I don't....I lock them badboys iiiiiiiiiin with a crumbcoat!

ETA: When I level a cake, the first layers are covered with icing, and the second layers go top side down and i don't level them after they're assembled. So, what I'm actually locking in are the few(more on the chocolate cakes seems like) that remain in the area.

I dont use a brush, I use my airbrush, (without color) icon_biggrin.gif blow those annoying crumbs right off those cakes. I suggest holding the cake over the sink, so that you dont have crumbs everwhere.

i bet a compressed air can will do it too ... the kind you clean your electronics with. i also use those to shoo my cats away from my stuff.

Only if it's food safe. (The one sitting beside my computer right now is not.)

oh, well...the one layered cakes get turned bottom side up onto the drum after the topside top is leveled. I wouldn't consider trying to crumbcoat or ice a leveled surface with the exception of carved cakes.
