You can do an initial crumb coat. In this coat of icing you apply it very thin...cake will show through in places. Let it crust nicely, then go back and apply a thicker coat of icing. The crumbs should be trapped in the crusted icing of the first coating. If they pop out into the final coating then the icing hadn't crusted enough or you are using too much pressure with your spatula/smoother.

That's what I do too!
