HOW IT WORKS-

 

*All enrolled students receive a Cake Decorating Kit prepared for them in which they will find all of the tools they will need to complete this 6 week course. The kit contains over 150 cake decorating essentials such as decorating tips, pastry bags, 6-inch cake pans, turntable, fondant, gel food coloring, templates and cake boards. The kit will ensure your student's success in class and set them up for future cake decorating at home!

A video will that goes over every item in the kit is sent to all enrolled families so your student knows exactly what they will be using and what it is called, before the 6-week class starts.

Kits will be heavy- they will need to be picked up the week of class (April 6th-10th) from the Kid Creative Cottage.

 All items are individually packaged from the seller and our team will be taking all necessary safety measures (gloves and masks) when putting the items together for your student.   

 

 *Step-by-step lesson videos will be uploaded and sent via email on Friday mornings for students to watch and review. In each lesson, the instructor will go over the materials needed from the kit, the recipes and how to perform each step of the cake decorating process.  

 

*A separate video showing students how to prepare the cakes and frostings will be uploaded in the beginning of the class series so that your student will have the opportunity to bake the cakes at home and prepare the frostings prior to each class.  A comprehensive list of ingredients (not found in the kit) for each week's cake will also be sent out. 

 

*A live Q&A will be set up each Saturday morning (10:00 am-11:30 am for the Cake Decorating Class II) where students can chat, and send pictures to the group chat for support and guidance from the instructor. Students can plan to decorate their cakes during this time so that they can receive help as they go. All you need is your smartphone. We will use a private youtube or facebook group as the platform for the live events each week. Both are a very easy and accessible way to make our "virtual classroom" live events.
