Do you dream of making beautiful cakes? Do you wonder how to achieve those even layers, and that smooth sugarpaste covering? Then our Basic cake class is just right for you.

In this class, you will go through all the steps to complete a fondant cake in your very own design:

You will learn to cut a cake into even layers, fill it with an airy buttercream that’s not too sweet, and mask it with a firm crusting buttercream.

We’ll show you the secrets of covering cakes in fondant, so that you’ll be able to do it with ease. And for decoration, you will craft your own gorgeous sugar blossoms to decorate your cake with. You will take your finished cake home, bursting with pride.
