In this FREE Craftsy mini-class, Joshua John Russell returns with a fresh take on the oldest trick in the pastry book: buttercream frosting. If you loved Josh in his first Craftsy class, Modern Piping, you'll want to learn his trade secrets for a smooth or textured buttercream finish ... in any weather. If you're a brand-new baker, Josh will teach you how to cut, level, fill and crumbcoat your layers like a professional, then add simple fondant and piped accents. Josh makes it stylish and fun!
Make your cakes look as wonderful as they taste. This course is Josh and Craftsy's gift to you ... FREE!
Because this is a free course, discussion is student-led (rather than instructor-led). If you see a question you know the answer to, please "pipe" up!
