About this class

As part of Cake 4 Fun’s ‘Technique’ series, this beginner’s class in using buttercream offers students a chance to get creative and master an essential baking skill.

Did you know?

In Roman times, it was commonplace to use eggs and butter in bread making, giving the finished product a cake-like consistency and texture. Honey was also used as a sweetener for their bread, and thus there was little distinction between what Roman’s would have called bread, and modern-day cake
