3 projects to master cake decorating techniques with buttercream made from scratch

What you'll learn

We will talk about basic ingredients to understand their properties and how to transform them, as well as what can be used as substitutions for each ingredient. We will also learn step-by-step how to make a variety of cake toppings.

The first project covers the watercolor technique. We will apply a beautiful technique using different shades of colors to achieve a marbled finish with highlighted edges dripping in white chocolate.

The second one will demonstrate the Wafer Paper Sail technique. Different techniques achieve an elegant decoration. We will learn two ways to evenly frost a cake with white buttercream, which we’ll then decorate with rice paper figures to suggest movement and dynamism. We’ll also add some chocolate spheres tinged with pearlescence. To finish the design, we will apply accents in edible gold leaf and a golden splash.

Finally we have a cake for soccer fans. We’ll teach you how to model chocolate and how to make grass from buttercream. To finish we will make a sugar paste jersey for a truly unique design.

Who is it for?

No prior knowledge is necessary. You will learn each of the techniques from scratch and you will receive guidance from the beginning so that you can perform them without difficulty and reach your full potential.

  • swivel cake stand
  • cardboard base
  • acrylic disk
  • leveler
