Fixing a Failed Crumb Coat
I recently made our daughter a red and blue velvet cake for her birthday. The cake was horribly crumbly and I had a really hard time crumb coating it. I was running low on frosting and decided that instead of making more to add a thicker coating to cover all of the crumbs, I would embrace my mess! I decided that I liked the red and blue crumbs mixed in the frosting, so I swirled the frosting around to collect even more crumbs and spread them all over the sides of the cake. I really like how it turned out. I know this won't work for everyone or every occasion, but it might help someone. :)
