Why is a flex format positively awesome for baking and cake decorating? #1 For best results, learners truly need to work with ingredients in an ideal state. In live classes a lot of time is spent “keeping the group together.” Oftentimes this means learners are working with fondant that has dried out of ganache that has cooled because they aren’t able to work at the best pace for them. #2 Creative minds typically don’t like to be rushed. I doubt Van Gogh ever said, “I’ve got 55 minutes....
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.
1 file available upon enrollmentSupply List: A detailed version of the supply list with photos for clarification is located in the classroom. Please utilize that for your final class preparations. 12” piping bags A ginormous bag of sprinkles (that’s the term used by professionals – 100%! ;-)) Candy melts Cake leveler 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. Small – brand new – paintbrush. About ½”. Gel food coloring in color(s) of your choice A stand mixer or hand mixer. Whisking buttercream without an electric mixer will not work! Each week students will need buttercream for class. The amounts may vary based upon the design, but a general guideline for weekly supplies is as follows: • 2 sticks (or 1 cup) of 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.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be using the stove top, ovens, etc. I defer to your judgement on safety as you know your learner's capabilities best.
