Constructing and Masking a cake looks easy, but ask any cake decorator and they will tell you that this is the most challenging aspect in all of cake decorating. In this class we aim to teach you the best method for creating a flawless canvas for your cakes.
In this class we will teach secrets to getting a round cake with smooth sides and sharp corners. Soon you will master the art of creating Picture worthy cakes.
We will cover cake decorating fundamentals. Students will learn to cut, layer and mask their cakes to a professional standard. Our class covers:
