All you need is the right guide and the right tools. This online class covers everything you need to know about baking, assembling and decorating single tier cakes. You'll learn step-by-step how to complete the class cake project from beginning to end, but you'll also gain the knowledge to continue creating your own cake masterpieces!
I’ve structured this course to set you up for maximum success. The entire process is broken down into individual manageable lessons that you’re able to pause and rewind as you follow along at home. 3 camera angles are used throughout the class so you can see what's happening on all sides!
Class includes over 3 hours of video content:
Lesson 1- Ingredients, Supplies, and Tools
Lesson 2- Prepping the Cake Pans
Lesson 3- Mixing the Cake Batter & Baking the Cakes
Lesson 4- De-panning the Cakes & Leveling the Cake Layers
Lesson 5- Making Buttercream

First: Plan on following along as you watch the videos and be sure to watch every video in order! Treat it just like a real class!
Second: The proper decorating tools make ALL the difference! Make sure you have the proper tools. You can find the class materials list below in this description, in the class e-book download, as well as an affiliate link to my amazon shop where you can purchase many of those materials.
Third: Complete the class over a few days. I’ve also organized the lessons this way, suggesting that you complete the class over the course of two-three days. On day one, we will cover how to bake the cake layers. On Day Two, we will make our buttercream and begin assembling and decorating. This is how I do all my baking for my own business- trying to do it all in one shot is one of the first mistakes that will make you never want to touch cake decorating again! It’s a lengthy process so splitting it up over a few days will definitely help you to get the best out of this experience.
Fourth: Cake decorating, just like any learned hobby or art, takes practice! Proficiency doesn’t come all at once. There's muscle memory involved. There’s a process to learn. That’s one of the biggest benefits of this online course- you can continue to watch and re-watch to hone your skills. If you keep practicing everything you learn from this course, you will be on your way to becoming a fabulous cake decorator!
