Springtime Cakes!

It’s officially spring so what better time to decorate a cake with pretty colors?! Today I taught two cake decorating classes for members of my group, What’s Cookin Chicago.

In this class, everyone was provided with their own 6 inch 2-layer cake to decorate as they wished with a decorator bottle set, perfect for those new to cake decorating. I talked about the 3 different frosting consistencies, how to crumb coat a cake and shared a few basic piping techniques. It was a great day full of creativity and as a result of the success of the classes, I will be teaching future classes specific to piping techniques! Here are some pictures of the event and my students working on their beautiful spring cakes:

Here are pictures of the finished cakes from the first class:

  1. how fun! What kind of device is the group using to frost? it doesnt look like an icing bag…

  2. Hi Nicole – thanks for your comment! The class is using a decorating bottle kit that includes 3 decorating bottles, 3 tips and a cleaning brush. Since this was a class completely new to cake decorating, we opted to use this kit. In the future classes I will be doing, we will be using traditional piping bags for more detailed and intermediate piping work.

  3. What an awesome class. Everyone had beautiful cakes!

  4. Cake decorating is the best part of making cakes!

  5. I’ve always wanted to try cake decorating! great pics.
