Have you tried making a cake at home using buttercream, but it never quite works out? Can’t get those inside layers even? Sharp edges elude you and achieving a smooth finish is impossible? It’s all in the little details and correct use of tools! Here’s your opportunity to learn the right processes as well as the tips and tricks to make a delicious, sharp edged, even and stunning buttercream cake.
Keva will guide and demonstrate how to fill, finish and decorate a cake using buttercream. You will assemble your sponge cake, filling it with vanilla buttercream, cover your cake with buttercream to achieve a sharp edge and finally decorate it. All tools are supplied for class use, recipes and methods are given to take home and you will be provided with a box to transport your masterpiece home safely. This is a hands on class, as this is always the best way to learn! There will be a maximum of 4 attendees per class, so there's plenty of opportunity for one on one teaching.
This class will last 2-2.5 hours, during this time you will learn how to:
• Cut your sponge cake into even layers
• Make Italian buttercream from scratch
• Add fruit/ flavourings/ chocolate to your buttercream
• Evenly cut sponge layers (your flavour choice of sponge)
• Soak your sponge with syrups
• Obtain equal layers of buttercream to stack your cake
• Crumb coat your cake
• Mask your cake in buttercream, to achieve smooth sides and straight edges using a turntable and scrapers
• Decorate your cake with Sucre Patisserie decorations (including macarons & meringues)
• Correctly store and package your cake
All of the recipes and methods can be taken home along with the decorated 6” round sponge and buttercream cake in a box, which you have made during the class, valued at approximately $180.00.
