Why we love buttercream so much, and why you're going to love it too

Buttercream is so popular these days for SO many reasons

Using buttercream saves you time and money

It's quicker to cover a cake with than fondant

It's also MUCH cheaper

It's so versatile when it comes to creating a contemporary design

You don't have worry about the icing tearing or wrinkling like you do with fondant icing

It tastes infinitely better than fondant (trust us, most people much prefer the taste of buttercream)

Your favourite contemporary cake designers create their designs with buttercream

It's the most popular style of cake these days (buttercream cakes are ALL over Instagram)

Once you've mastered it, it's so rewarding to work with

But we know buttercream can be a struggle to work with at first, even if you've practiced and practiced and practiced, and watched hours of YouTube tutorials...

It may seem like everyone you see online has mastered that flawless finish and beautiful buttercream design techniques.

You should be able to create these buttercream beauties too and work confidently with buttercream to get a flawless finish every time. You should be able to think about design and flavours rather than wasting time fretting over your technique and correcting lumps and bumps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I join if I have no baking experience?

It's definitely possible but we recommend you have some experience first as the class uses a pre-baked cake for Lessons 4-6 (alternatively you can buy a sponge to use but check the Class Requirements for the size). If you need help learning to bake, our Baking Fundamentals online class will teach you how you bake the perfect sponge from scratch!

Q: What if I have no experience using buttercream?

That's absolutely no problem! We teach you our recipes and the fundamental skills for working confidently with buttercream from scratch.

Q: What else do I need to start the class?

We provide a full list of recommended tools and ingredients when you enrol. We recommend having the basic baking equipment, such as mixers, digital scales etc.

No, you can watch the class at any time that suits you. There's no start time, and the class videos and downloadable resources are available from the release date until FOREVER! You have lifetime access and can watch and rewatch as many times as you need, whenever you need.

Q: Do I have to watch the lessons in order?

Each video is a lesson in itself, but we have structured the class in a specific order so we do recommend watching in the order of the class. However if you want to watch a particular class individually they are also suitable as standalone lessons.

Q: How long is the class?

The video duration for the whole class is roughly 1 hour 22 mins. If you're following along as you watch you can take things at your own pace, so the class could take as long as you need!

Q: Will there be ongoing support?

Yes, we're here to support you throughout your whole journey. We've created a Facebook group for our online classes which you will have lifetime access to (you'll receive a link to this once you join the course). The group is for our community of students to support one another, share their questions, results and feedback, and most importantly, be able to ask our team anything cake related. We'll be on hand in the group to answer your questions and keep you informed and motivated.
