Lessons – FAQ

  • Frequently asked questions:
    Which class should I take first?

    In cake decorating it is very important to learn how to assemble a cake properly. We want to achieve 90° angles on the side and 180° on the top. It is also important to learn what fillings are appropriate for the style of cake that you want to decorate. We cover so much essential information in our basics class that we recommend that students start with this class first before taking any other decorating classes.

  • Should I do the cake decorating basics or the principles of baking class first? It is not essential to take the baking class since you could use cake mixes to make your cake sponge. For sculpted cakes you will however need a cake that is baked from scratch. Nothing beats cake or baked goods that are made from scratch. Our class will give you information that will make baking a pleasure and not a chore.
  • What do I need to bring to the class?  We provide everything, all you need to do is sign up.
  • I have already done Michaels courses, do I need to take the cake decorating basics class? Our course material is very different from the Wilton courses.
