In this initial introductory class, self-taught, British-born cake designer Annalise Benskin focused on covering some cake design basics for attendants at the level of complete beginner. The class prepared simple cupcakes with a Swiss Meringue Butter Cream piping design. We look forward to working with Annalise again for more amazing tricks and techniques in cake design. Annalise is an active cake designer and creates cakes, mini cakes and cookies for weddings, events and celebrations of all kinds.
