|COURSE TITLE||PALETTE KNIFE PAINTED BUTTERCREAM CAKE|
|TRAINING PROVIDER||ACADEMY OF CAKE DECORATING LTD|
Option 1 course is a 1-day class (9 am-5 pm) perfect for those wanting to learn trendy techniques in painting with buttercream and ganache, also want to improve the skills of making sugar flowers and foliage out of gum paste, cold porcelain, and wafer paper.
The benefit of covering the cake with this method is that the buttercream or ganache will not come off on your hands while painting or touching.
We will start by making the sugar flowers, will continue preparing the colored buttercream/ ganache, which will be used for covering and painting.
The class does not include baking, we will work on a freshly made 6" wide 7" tall vanilla sponge cake baked in our bakery, filled and prepared for covering.
The course starts at 9 am and finish at 6 pm we will stop for a 30 min lunch break @ midday.
Option 2 only covers the preparation of creams, cake covering and painting of the cake. It starts at 2 pm and finishes at 5 pm. No sugar flowers or foliage will be made or used on this option.
