Class Experience

The students will be able make buttercream frosting from scratch.  They will be able to make 20 different flowers and 9 different filler flowers.  To finish off their cake they will be able to make an even basket weave pattern, rope border and arrange flowers on a cake.  

You’ll need to have most of your ingredients measured out.
We will be learning 2 different ways to separate eggs so if you don’t know how you’ll be able to do that during class time. 
You’ll need to have your butter cut up in 1 inch or so pieces and chilled.

Choose, color and mix icing for the listed flowers and prepare your pastry bags.  You can be creative as to what colors you prefer for each flower.
You will probably need to change out tips and possibly clean them for the various flowers between flowers.  
Several dozen 3x3 inch wax paper squares 

Mix and color icing for the listed flowers and prepare your pastry bags.  You can be creative as to what colors you prefer. 
If you are out of icing then you will need to make more before this class. 

 Make more icing, if you need to.  We will practice piping basket weaving and the rope border.    
   (The color doesn’t matter to practice.) 
Mix three different colors of green (dark, medium and light) and fill one bag half way full.  Do not mix them together in the bag.  Just glop them in and leave them like that. Also, put in a glob of white into the same bag.  We are looking for variegated colors in the leaves. 

Bake, level and crumb frost the cake. 
Make enough icing to cover the entire cake sides with basketweave, a border and a thin layer of frosting on the top. 
Make a plan for how you want to arrange your flowers and make more flowers, and freeze them, if you haven’t made enough. 
Decide how you will display your cake 


DAY 1: CAKE DECORATING SUPPLIES: All cake decorating tip numbers are for the brand “Wilton”. You can use them as reference so that you get these exact tips or even similar ones by another company since supplies may be low during this time in the world. Tips: #102, (2)#104, #1, #3, #352 #70 or #67 (for piping on even more leaves),#67 (sunflower and hydrangea) #101, #81, #5, #16, #14, #233/grass tip Drop flower tip suggestions: (there are many different types on the market to choose from) I chose a set of these four by Wilton #225, #129, #109, #190 Basket weave tip: #44, 45, 46 or 47 will work Decorators pastry bags disposable or reusable are fine. We will also be learning how to make small parchment bags Several couplers and rings are necessary, not just one. We will be interchanging the same tip with many different colors Set of paste food colors for making various leaves and flowers. Wilton 8 pack is fine. Small tip cleaning brush is very useful DAY 1: FROM YOUR KITCHEN Parchment paper Wax paper Scissors Tape Spatula Bowl Kitchen digital thermometer Kitchen scale (with metrics since the recipe is in metrics) Electric mixer and beaters Large bowl to mix the frosting in Ingredients for icing all at specified temperatures Measuring cups Toothpicks Paper towel Saucepan Water Access to the stove and freezer DAY 2: CAKE DECORATING SUPPLIES NEEDED: All cake decorating tips listed for the class Pastry bags Couplers and rings Medium and large flower nails (Students do need these) DAY 2: SUPPLIES FROM YOUR KITCHEN: Parchment paper Tape Wax paper Scissors Several small bowls with lids for your different icing colors.

The students are having issues maneuvering the large ones on such a small cake) Pastry bag with coupler and ring Basket weave tip #44, 45, 46, or 47 will work Star tip: #18 or #21 Cake turntable or lazy susan is super helpful to have DAY 5 SUPPLIES FROM YOUR KITCHEN Toothpicks to keep flowers on the side of the cake if you want them on the side
We will be sharing photos and doing show and tell as we work each day. 
7 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
***Your student may need assistance with using the oven while baking their cake before day 5. We will not be making a cake together during class. 

***They may also need assistance while operating an electric stand or hand mixer while pouring in the hot syrup. 

***You may also need to assist with measuring out ingredients properly in grams.  I will not be covering this aspect in this class.  
NOTE: I will be sending the icing recipe as a PDF file attached to the welcome you’ll receive from me upon registration.  We will make this together during class time on the first day.
