Join Dawn Alston of Ravy Cakes, LLC competitor on Food Networks Wedding Cake Championship, for a Beginner's Cake Decorating Class. In this class, you'll use buttercream to make a beautiful butterfly themed cake.

Each participant will learn to crumb coat a 6-inch 2 layered cake. The students will learn how to tint buttercream and how to apply buttercream to their cake. Additionally, students will learn various piping techniques and how to create fondant accessories with edible images to create beautiful butterflies. Chef Dawn will teach additional cake decorating techniques throughout the class while you are building a beautiful butterfly themed cake!

Appropriate for ages 16+

All items and tools needed to decorate will be provided for use during the workshop only. All students are eligible for a 5% discount on purchases at Fran's on the day of class. This class can be a little messy so please wear something that you don't mind getting a little buttercream on or bring your own apron.

Class requires a minimum of 4 students and there is a maximum of 8 students. In the event of insufficient enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
