3. CRUMB COATING
- Spatula or blunt knife– You will need a bent offset spatula or simply use the blunt end of a butter knife for this step.
This is a pivotal step in cake decorating. “Crumb Coating” is applying a very thin coat of medium-thin consistency icing to seal in any crumbs so they don’t show in your second coat of icing or decoration.
It is pretty simple and straightforward. Use your spatula to apply a thin and even coat of icing all over the cake. Allow this to sit for a while to “crust” and seal in the crumbs before you apply the next layer of icing.
