Are you not quite happy with your fondant skills yet? Then this advanced cake class is just right for you.

In this class, we will focus on those cake design techniques that make a cake look so much more professional: You will learn to torte and fill your cake with a delicious buttercream, how to mask is with super sharp ganache edges, preparing a perfect base for the fondant (sugarpaste).

Then you will cover your cake and a styrofoam dummy with marbled fondant, and achieve razor sharp edges. You’ll also learn how to cut your fondant at the base so that you don’t need a ribbon to hide the bottom edge. Then you will learn stacking techniques so that the cake can be transported and served safely – even in summer!

You’ll learn how to craft an impressive open peony and decorate your cake with this eye-catching flower.

Note: Previous experience with torting, filling, masking and covering cakes is mandatory for this class. For beginners with no previous exerience, we recommend our Basic cake class.
