The Basics of Buttercream course

Everything you need to know about making, flavouring, colouring, storing, and using BUTTERCREAM!

Buttercream is quick and easy to make, it takes on bright colours and a huge variety of flavours, and its texture and versatility makes unique cake decorating techniques possible! In this course I'll teach how to make buttercream with the perfect consistency for frosting and piping and also how to flavour, colour, and store it. You'll learn how much buttercream you'll need to frost cupcakes and different sizes of cakes, how to frost a cake with perfectly smooth sides and edges, and how to achieve different buttercream cake decorating techniques.
