Class Experience

Students will learn how to make buttercream icing and ice a 2-layer cake. I will even show you tips on how to get a smooth finish. They can just watch me and learn or make their own icing with me and ice their own cake.  
Make a cake, decorate it, and share it with your family! Then clean up the kitchen! 
If you would like to make a cake and decorate it during class, make 2 8" round layers of cake from your favorite recipe and have them cooled before class. To make the buttercream, you will need: 2 sticks of real unsalted butter (not margarine) that have been sitting on the counter for a couple of hours to soften. 1 cup shortening 2 lb of powdered sugar 1 Tablespoon vanilla Milk or flavored coffee creamer Concentrated food coloring (Wilton or Americolor are best), optional Some type of filling to go between the layers if you choose - chocolate chips, jam, fresh fruit, etc. If you prefer not to use shortening, you can make it with all butter but it will be very soft. That's fine for icing the cake and tastes amazing. If you want to pipe decorations, you will want to use at least some shortening. A mixer, a cake plate, a spatula (the angled small icing spreader from Wilton is best), paper towels, decorations of your choice (sprinkles, fresh fruit, nuts, candy, etc.)
Let your eyes and taste buds judge how you did!
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents, please assist your child in making the cake and handling the mixer.
