- How to properly fill, hold and use a piping bag
- How to pipe petal cakes, multiple ruffles, basket weave, simple baby rosettes, leaves, vines and more
- How to make shell borders, reverse shell borders, pearl borders and more
- You will make 5 cakes during this 6 class series
You don’t have to watch this class live! You will have forever access to the class. However, you need to do the class in order from Class 1 – Class 6 because we will be teaching things each week that will then help you with the following weeks cakes. (I.E. If you haven’t completed Class 1 we ask that you don’t skip ahead to Class 2 or 3 until Class 1 is complete so you don’t feel lost.)
This is an interactive class! During Week 1 of class, I will go over all basic cake decorating supplies including how to make your buttercream icing and putting your cake together. The first week, you just need to watch and ask any questions you want. Then weeks 2-6 I will ask that you bake a cake and make your icing ahead of time so you can decorate with me (if you’re watching it live) or before you watch it (if you’re watching it after the live session, which is completely fine)! You don’t have to participate or do the cake live with me but again, before you move on to the next class please make sure you watch and complete the previous week!
Once you register and pay for the class, you will be automatically sent an email to join the FB group. Please join that group sooner than later so you can get the complete supply list. You will get 2 emails after registration. One is the payment confirmation and one is the confirmation from us with class link and info. If you don’t automatically receive these emails, please check your spam and if you still don’t have it then email us. You will get an auto reply that has the link you need to join the class. Please answer the 2 membership questions or you won’t be approved!
May 27: I will go over supplies including what you use each tip for. I will show you how to make your buttercream. I will go over leveling your cakes, filling and crumb coating. I will show you what your cake should look like for Weeks 2-6.
June 17: I will teach you how to smooth icing your cake with some tricks that will make your life very easy. Then we will do a simple decorating technique with sprinkles and a large piping tip for the perfect simple party cake look!
June 24: I will teach you a ribbon ruffle, simple rosettes, leaves, vines and simple writing this week for your cake.
July 1: I will teach you how to make an ombre petal cake!
June 8: I will teach you how to make a beautiful basket weave cake!
July 15: I will teach you how to make a chevron ombre ruffle.
Please note, this is a cake DECORATING class and we will be practicing making our cakes look flawless each week. With that being said, you do not have to bake your cake from scratch or be a pro baker to enjoy and learn from this class. With that being said, I will teach you great piping techniques to make beautiful cakes but I will also teach you how to properly pipe and make a great icing, which will make completing countless other designs very easy for you after this class!
We do have class kits for this class. I recommend joining the FB group first to see full supply list to see what you’ll need. This class doesn’t need too many specialty items. Besides items to make your cake, you’ll just need an offset spatula, piping tips, piping bags, food coloring, a turntable (recommended) and simple cake boards! This is all explained in detail in the group.
When joining the FB group, please make sure to answer both membership questions and allow 48 hours to be accepted into the group!!
Class is $55
Please remember this class series includes 6 full classes! We are so excited to bring this class to an online format for all of you!
