These days, cakes are towering works of art with gravity-defying, whimsical designs; the opportunities are as exciting as they are endless. This is your chance to explore all that the world of Cake Decorating has to offer! In this five-day, hands-on course, Chef Sunny Lee will take you through classic cake recipes that are perfect for all special occasions. This course is guaranteed to jumpstart your baking passion and take your cakes from “meh” to marvelous!
You will learn cake decorating skills that are popular the world-over such as:
- Delicate Rolled Fondant Decorations
- Elaborate Gumpaste Flowers
- Intricate Royal Icing Piping
- Smooth Buttercream Frostings
- Elegant Sugar Decorations
- Complex Cake Sculpting
Over the course of five days, you will make two complete cakes: one, a sculpted cake with real cake and tasty buttercream; and the second, a tiered confection covered in smooth fondant. You'll learn how to cover both real cakes and "Dummy Cakes" (Styrofoam cylinders used by cake decorators the world over), and how to properly stack tiers.
Our chef and cake expert will teach you everything you need to know in a comfortable kitchen environment so you can use your new knowledge at home. Be prepared to take your beautiful finished projects home to your family and friends!
