This Buttercream Side Elevation Piping Techniques Class is for students wanting to move into the world of buttercream. We will be demonstrating how to make ‘professional basic buttercream’ and discussing the easy ‘Swiss meringue’ buttercream method. In this class to keep cost minimal, students will be using our professional frosting to execute the tiered buttercream effect during the day. We will teach you how to prepare, cut, fill and cover your deep 6″ sponge cake so that they look professional. Whilst waiting for our smooth crumb coat to crust, we will colour our buttercream and start to cover a variety of sized polystyrene balls with sugar paste. We will continue the day, executing the tiered buttercream effect. To complete the effect we will be adding our cascading balls and finally adding a gold edge. You will be able to make your masterpiece personalised by adding sprinkles and will be shown the splatter effect. A cake topper will be provided if you inform via email on booking class
