Question from Anita B.
Do you bake and level a cake?
Answer from CARA T. Verified Educator
Hi Anita! Thanks for your question. This course will focus on cake stacking, filling, crumb, and top coating techniques. We will also focus on buttercream piping techniques and cake leveling. Due to the time frame of this class (2 1/2 hours) we are unable to bake the cake as well during the class time. Our sheet cakes will be ready for you for the start of class freshly prepared by our baker. You will get to take home the fully decorating cake at the end of the class.
