Modern Buttercream

$ 29.00

Buttercream went out of style for a while, but it's back. And it's gorgeous. In this class, I'll share my secret buttercream recipe and teach some traditional piping techniques with added flair. So, let's get ready to ruffle!

Instructor Message

I adore fondant cakes, they're my specialty. Fondant isn't very pleasing to the palate. The delicious, sometimes considered "old fashioned," alternative to fondant is buttercream. This class modernizes buttercream. Piping isn't just for borders anymore--covering an entire cake creates a full new look. I use these buttercream frosting techniques on "baby smash", birthday, and shower cakes. (I even used this handiwork for an entire smash cake photo session for my family's yearly pictures.)
