HOW TO BAKE & DECORATE A BIRTHDAY CAKE
 

Learn to master the art of making a simple, beautiful birthday or special occasion cake. We will greet you with a pre-baked cake (let us know if you prefer chocolate or vanilla) and whisk you in to learn how to perfect cakes from scratch. The batter we make in class will be turned into cupcakes- ready for you to practice your piping with. 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!

HOW TO BAKE & DECORATE A BIRTHDAY CAKE
 

Learn to master the art of making a simple, beautiful birthday or special occasion cake. We will greet you with a pre-baked cake (let us know if you prefer chocolate or vanilla) and whisk you in to learn how to perfect cakes from scratch. The batter we make in class will be turned into cupcakes- ready for you to practice your piping with. 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!
