Creating a three-tiered cake is no easy feat. Cake construction and decorating requires being an adept baker, and knowing the finer points of piping and sugar paste work. In this 5-day, hands-on cake course, you’ll gain these skills and more, plus you’ll learn from some of New York City’s best cake designers.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Designed to take the skills of any baker to the next level, you’ll learn the basic principles of cake, frostings and cake construction, and then apply them to assemble a three-tier masterpiece of your own, embellished with simple and complex techniques using rolled fondant and royal icing.

Each class begins with a brief discussion of recipes and techniques. Then, you’ll roll up your sleeves and get to work, learning how to:

  • Prepare classic white cake and Swiss buttercream
  • Construct and use paper cornets to decorate with piped royal icing
  • Create rosettes, shells, snails, and more
