Tastings & Take-Home Mini Decorated Cake
Instructor: Kris Koehler

Want to give the boot to those store-bought cakes and learn how to decorate cakes yourself for your next special celebration? We thought so!

Much like the little black dress, the classic celebration cake (in all its various shapes and forms) will never go out of style! Our expert instructor, Chef Kris Koehler, who happens to be an experienced pastry chef, will show you some basic cake styles that will take your next birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, etc….up a notch…or three!

First off, we’ll learn to create a delicious filling and basic buttercream frosting. Then, we’ll talk the proper way to ice a cake, including all about leveling, and the importance of “crumb-coating,” Gotta get those basics down!

Next, Chef Kris will demonstrate some celebration cakes as she shows you the techniques of watercolor buttercream, brush strokes, drip cakes, and mirror glaze (it’s really all the rage right now.) You'll get some hands-on practice with a pastry bag and tips and practice what you’ve learned as you create your own unique mini-cake to take home and show off to your friends and family.

Forget that grocery store cake! You've got this!
