Design Your Own Castle Cake

with Sharon Wee
Create a castle cake fit for a princess, a knight or your favorite beachgoer with detailed instruction from cake designer Sharon Wee.

Your birthday girl will feel like royalty when you make a princess castle cake - complete with turrets, flags and an adorable fondant figurine. If a pink palace isn’t your preferred theme, Sharon shows you a medieval twist for a knightly castle and another fun variation that creates a lighthouse topper on a cookie-crumb sandcastle. In this technique-based class, you’ll learn to design, carve and sculpt your castle cakes before applying a smooth ganache crumb coat. Sharon’s methods are as practical as her creations are whimsical. She’ll teach you time-saving tips to efficiently imagine, build and embellish your cakes with textured fondant, modeled figurines and realistic shading. Take castle cakes by storm! Enroll in Design Your Own Castle Cake today.
