Have you ever wanted to further your fondant skills to make your cakes look flawless like the ones you see in social media, but haven’t found a class that answers all of your questions regarding covering cakes in fondant? If so, this in-depth class will help you master the art of fondant once and for all no matter if you are a beginner or a veteran caker. In this course students will start by learning the basics of fondant by understanding the different types of fondant to learning how to cover a tier properly without causing rips, tears, or elephant skin. Students will also learn the secrets to creating sharp edges with ease and how to ensure there is no seam between tiers. Lastly, students will tackle covering an extended, tall tier in a contemporary stone texture and how to create unique textures of their own. By the end of class every student will have a completed two tiered cake to take home with the knowledge to create perfectly covered cakes in any shape or form. As an added note dummies will be used in class but the instructor will provide guidance when working with real cake.
