About

Become a master baker from your own kitchen. Learn how to create gorgeous cakes with silky icing in this online course. You may not realize that you don’t have to have a degree from an expensive culinary school to be able to create beautiful and sophisticated cakes, anymore than you have to attend art school in Paris to create beautiful paintings.

This course has been specifically designed for those hoping to learn how to create beautiful and sophisticated cake designs that tantalize the taste buds and the eyes.

We’ll guide you through the tools you’ll need and show you the steps to using those tools as a means of artistic expression. Each module will walk you through the choices that exist for you in cake design, as well as the techniques that will set your cakes apart and lead to a finished product that looks almost too good to eat.

What you will learn:

  • How to determine the right size, design, and supplies you will need
  • All about icing and different design styles that will make your cake stand out
  • How to make fondant 
  • Basic and complex ways of decorating with fondant
