These are the tips we got out of the video:
• Turn the top layer upside-down. By positioning the flat bottom of the upper cake layer facing out, you get a nice flat surface on the top of your cake without having to deal with slicing off the dome and the excess crumbs that result.
• Use a lot of frosting. A good amount of frosting covers the cake and seems to trap the crumbs without the need for an additional crumb coat.
• Protect the plate. Protecting the cake plate with strips of parchment or wax paper allows you to spread a generous layer of frosting around the top of the cake and down the sides while still maintaining a neat bottom edge.
