In this course on 5 Ways to Frost a Cake you’ll learn how to frost round and square cakes with perfectly smooth frosting, how to use a cake comb to create neatly textured frosting, how to create ombre frosting that blends two colours together, how to create stunning rainbow textured frosting, and how to frost and decorate a cake with gorgeous piped details. Every technique is broken down into manageable steps and even if you have absolutely no cake decorating experience, by the end of this course you’ll be able to create stunning cakes! You’ll start with the basics: how to check and adjust the consistency of your frosting, how to colour it, and how to use piping bags. Next, you’ll learn how to assemble and crumb coat a cake and then move on to the five frosting techniques covered in this course: smooth frosting, textured frosting with a cake comb, ombre frosting, rainbow textured frosting, and piped ruffles used to frost and decorate cakes in different ways. For each technique I’ll show you ways to add finishing touches like borders or piped details or a sparkly finish or metallic gold accents. You can use any kind of frosting for these techniques: “American” buttercream made with powdered sugar (also called icing sugar) and butter or shortening, ganache, whipped cream, or any meringue buttercream. This course will build your knowledge, skills, and confidence in frosting and decorating cakes!
