The Zoom link for the class will be sent out to you the morning of the class.
We are using the recipe for the Cotton Candy Cake from Jenna Rae Cakes and Sweet Treats which means you’ll need to have a copy of the book to prepare everything on your own for the class. For the class, you will need to have the Cotton Candy cake baked and cooled (preferably baked the day before) and the Buttercream prepared (divided, flavoured and coloured) and at room temperature from pages 146-147. You’ll also have all your sprinkles and other decorative touches you’d like ready to use. See below the list of tools you will need for the class.
*Note, you can choose to only flavour the buttercream with the Liquid Cotton Candy and flavour to taste (1 tablespoon does the trick!). For this, we recommend one bottle of Liquid Cotton Candy.
Can’t make it? A recording will be sent out after the class!
– Cake Turntable or Lazy Susan recommended (We love the Ateco 608 Revolving Cake Decorating Stand) You can also purchase a less industrial style by Wilton available at stores like Michaels.
– Large Offset Spatula (We prefer this Wilton 409-7712 Angled Icing Spatula, 9-Inch, Black) You can also purchase off-set spatulas at places like Bulk Barn and Michaels. *a non-serrated butter knife will work also if you don’t wish to purchase a spatula, however you won’t get a smooth, professional look!
– *Cake Smoother. You can use your offset spatula if you’d like but a cake smoother is definitely recommended for that smooth finish and sharp edges! We like this one as the edges are completely even with the handle.
– Fridge Space for your cake
– Serrated Knife for cutting the cake layers
– Piping Bag– no tip required
– Spatula to mix the buttercream
– Scissors for the piping bag
*= Not required but will help make your cake have the most professional finish!
