Baking Fundamentals Online Masterclass

Course Details

Baking Fundamentals is our sell-out masterclass from our London Cake School and has been our most popular class to date. Now you can learn it all from the comfort of your own home – anytime, anywhere, with lifetime access.  

Through step-by-step videos and supporting PDFs, we will teach you how to bake and ice consistently perfect sponge cakes from scratch. 

During this comprehensive Baking Fundamentals online masterclass, you will learn all the essential skills and science of baking a perfect sponge cake every time. With our expertise, we will teach you our fool-proof techniques needed to bake, cut and fill with Swiss meringue buttercream, and cover a single tier cake. You will learn how to adapt our signature sponge cake and buttercream recipes (Swiss meringue and American) to create a variety of different flavours.

As well as learning how to bake a perfect sponge, you’ll learn how to cover your cake with a smooth professional buttercream finish, and decorate with edible petals and ingredients.

The cake you make is also suitable for stacking as part of a tiered cake.

This masterclass is suitable for anyone wanting to learn how to bake, from complete beginners to keen bakers alike.

What you need: we provide a full ingredients and equipment list in the class materials, but the basics are: flour (self-raising or plain flour and baking powder), butter or baking margarine, eggs, caster sugar and icing sugar, 2 x 6" cake tins, an oven, a mixer (a stand mixer or hand mixer), and a mixing bowl.
