Crumb Coating AKA Dirty Ice

A crumb coat, also referred to a dirty ice, is when you take some of your thin icing and just smear it all around the cake.  

 

The first purpose is to seal in the crumbs, so that they stay out of your way when you are icing the cake.

The second purpose of it is to keep your cake from drying out while it settles and waits for you to do more work to it.  The coating of icing will keep the air out of your cake.
