Once our cupcakes are baked, we'll turn our attention to the cakes and learn to split them into perfectly even layers. You will then make frosting, crumb coat your cake and learn the basics of piping while the cakes chill in the fridge. Once the cakes are set and cupcakes are beautifully decorated, we'll return to the cakes and learn to create all-over patterns, from ombre effects to large rosettes and contiguous ruffles. Sprinkles are optional!
