Class Experience

I am a professional baker who has been teaching confectionery arts on Outschool for three years now.  I have loved baking since I was the age of most of my learners!  In fact, in class you’ll see my beloved KitchenAid stand mixer that was my 12th birthday present and is still a total workhorse to this day!  

When my kids were young I decided to take some cake decorating classes to ensure my kids always had show-stopping cakes at their parties.  Over time it blossomed into a career beyond my wildest dreams.  I operated a bakery for a number of years and eventually transitioned into this ultra-fulfilling role as a confectionery arts teacher.  

I love seeing the creativity, patience, and precision that goes into each learner’s work.  However, I also love seeing them manage a project from start to finish.  I am proud of them when they are faced with a setback in their project and they calmly make a plan B.  I enjoy watching them interact in the virtual classroom as they learn from one another and provide feedback/compliments on the work of their peers.  There is so much more to cake decorating than just cake.  (((Although as an invested parent it is your responsibility to partake in eating their delicious homework – haha!)))  These learners grow in so many ways throughout class and it is a blessing to participate in that process.  

I am so excited for this opportunity to create with your learner.
Learners will spend approximately two hours each week working independently through content I have provided and with daily support from me.  Our week will culminate in a 50 minute live meeting.

An exceptionally detailed version of the supply list with photos for clarification is located in the classroom. Please utilize that for your final class preparations. 16” piping bags Wilton 1A piping tip Wilton 104 piping tip Wilton 1M piping tip Cake level or a large, serrated kitchen knife A 6” or 8” cake for class each weekly. This can be baked from scratch or a box mix. Learners need to have *two* matching cake pans to bake the layers for their cakes. Gel food coloring in color(s) of your choice A stand mixer or hand mixer. Whisking buttercream without an electric mixer will not work! Angled spatula – in a pinch a dull knife or the back of a small spoon will work. Kitchen basics will be needed as well. Things like scissors, oven mitts, etc. Likely all things you already have handy. Each week we will make a batch of buttercream. Weekly, students will need: • 1 cup of salted butter softened • 2 lbs of powdered sugar • 4 tsps vanilla extract • Approximately 1 cup heavy cream
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will be utilizing the oven and (optionally) the stovetop.  They'll also be using knives and other kitchen instruments.  I trust your judgement as to the supervision your individual learner may need.  However, class is structured to foster as much independence as possible, while encouraging learners to seek safety support when needed.
