Join us for this 2 days  workshop to learn basic assembly and decoration techniques for buttercream cakes. During the two days, each student will assemble and decorate two 6″ cakes with buttercream roses and succulents. Examples of the cakes are as pictured :

On day one, students will first learn how to split, fill, mask and ice cakes. Proper mise en place for the cake assembly and tool selections will be discussed during the demonstration.  Next, students will practice on making two types of flowers: apple blossoms and roses. On day two, students will practice making three different types of succulents using the techniques learned from the previous day as well as decorating  two cakes by the end of the day 2.

The cake bases and the buttercream will be prepared in advance in order to focus more on the specific decoration techniques during the workshop. The mixing and baking of the cake bases and the making of the buttercream will be demonstrated as well.

Course Materials
Listed below are the items you must bring to class.

•Permanent marker. This piece of “equipment” is invaluable in the labs.
•Hair restraint. For safety and sanitation, you must restrain your hair if it’s long.

•Closed-toe, comfortable shoes. Your shoes must be closed for safety. They should be comfortable enough to stand in all day.
•For safety, your pants must cover your entire legs. For your comfort, we recommend breathable pants. Checked chef’s pants are popular because they don’t show flour spills or stains.
•White chef’s coat. This is optional item. We strongly recommend chef’s coats because they look professional and protect your body and clothing. Most importantly, they keep you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot.
We suggest that you dress in layers. Your chef’s coat (optional), with a t-shirt for your base layer and a long-sleeved shirt for warmth, should keep you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot. You may want to bring a sweatshirt or fleece for the mornings.
