2012 is off to a fast start and I'm excited to tell you about some of the classes we have lined up! Ron Ben-Israel returns to Custom Cakes in March for two classes. We look forward to welcoming students from all over the world for Ron's classes. The Extreme Flower class is sold out but we do have 2 seats available in the Orchid class. If you have the opportunity we would love for you to join us.
This summer we are offering some fun and informative classes. June 3, 2012 I will be teaching "Ruffles, Pearls, and a Frilly Flower" class. We have a lot of information packed into this one day class. Here is a picture of our class project:
July classes begin with dear friend Ashlee Perkins of Tier Luxury Cakes teaching her very popular "Introduction to Cake Sculpture." Working with cake, students will make a laying down bull dog cake.
Here is a picture of Ashlee and one of our students with her finished cake:
"Wedding Cakes from Start to Finish" will be taught July 27-30 and will be a four day class. I will be sharing everything I know about wedding cakes in this four day class. We will go over contracts, pricing, marketing, how to properly construct a tiered cake, etc,. and this year we will make sugarpaste flowers to use in decorating our cake. Each student will leave with a wedding cake manual, their wedding cake, and all the forms we use at Custom Cakes.
Here is a picture of our class project:
July 14th will be our "How to Frost a cake with Ganache and Cover it with Fondant" class. In this one day class students will learn how to make ganache, fill and frost a cake with ganache, and cover the cake in fondant with a perfect finish. Once you use ganache, you may never go back to buttercream!
We will be announcing a couple of more July classes so check back soon for an update.
