Cake Decorating Classes

Cake Decorating Classes

We offer cake decorating classes for both children and adults. We teach beginner and intermediate students and those just looking to add to their skill set.

In Cake Decorating – 101 we start with pre-baked cake layers that are cooled and ready to go when the class begins. In class we make a cooked filling and a cooked buttercream frosting. The cooked frostings are so much easier to work with and the taste is far superior to cold-process icings. The cakes are then assembled and iced. We teach students to frost a cake to achieve a perfectly smooth finish, just like the professionals. We then make a 3-dimensional cake topper out of a sugar medium called modeling chocolate. Every student goes home with a fully decorated cake. We provide everything that is required for the lesson, including the packaging to take the cakes home.

Our teaching style is very hands-on. Each student is given recipes, tips and tricks to achieve success long after the class has ended and students are on their own in their kitchens at home. We even offer suggestions as to where to buy cake decorating supplies.

Classes are offered weekdays, after school, evenings and weekends. All lessons are private unless the student chooses to assemble their own group. Cake decorating classes are great experiences for couples, families, groups of friends and/or co-workers looking for a team building exercise.

We offer In-Your-Own-Home cake and cupcake decorating parties. We bring everything that is required for the event. This is a fun activity for bridal showers, kids parties and bachelorette parties, just to name a few. The cake that Chef Heather uses during her instruction is enjoyed by the party guests leaving the cakes that everyone has decorated untouched and ready to be taken home and eaten later.

If you would like more information on our classes and parties please contact us. We look forward to teaching you.
