This may seem like a stupid question but.....I am new to cake decorating and I keep hearing about a crumb coat?? What is that?
Thanks in advance!!
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
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. =)
