We just finished our THIRD cake class! Wow! It's almost hard to believe that 4 months ago I was wondering if we could ever pull one off, but now we have had three successful classes with even more on the calendar. Our most recent class revisited the techniques used to make our classic birthday cake but with a little twist: a watercolor design on the outside. Due to an incredible stroke of luck, we were able to move into a bigger space witch allowed us to open the wait list and welcome our biggest class yet. Stacie Hubbard Photography was also on site with us and captured all of the fun!
The first few steps of these cakes were similar to other cakes we've tackled at cake class: layers were unwrapped, leveled, stacked and crumb coated to create a great blank canvas to work on.
After the cakes were assembled and crumb coated, it was time for the fun part: choosing colors, dying the icing and "globbing" the cakes (which is obviously the technical term for that).
Once all of the colored buttercream, was "globbed" on the cakes, the next step was to smooth everything to create that gorgeous watercolor effect!
Finally we made it to the last steps: carefully pipe a beautiful border, add some fun sprinkles and admire the masterpiece!
I don't think there is anything else in the cake world that I love as much as I do cake class. We are hosting our first ever kids class next weekend and I'm over the moon with excitement to see all of the creations from the mini cake artists!
