TIERED WEDDING CAKE COURSE
This three-day course is designed to teach you the principles of assembling and decorating a stacked wedding cake. You will work with a dummy tier as well as a fresh cake of which you will expertly ice in sugar paste. You will then learn how to securely stack a fresh cake with dowels. Finally, we will introduce you to several fundamental design elements for decorating your cake, such as basic piping techniques, simple sugar flowers, and couture lace work. At the end of the module, you will go home with an elegant two-tier wedding cake and the ability to make cakes with any number of tiers.
