Perfect buttercream lesson. Helped a lot on my latest cake. Orange cake with vanilla american buttercream. Think dreamsicle.

Great class, awesome instructor, beautiful cake!

Very good class. I never thought a free mini class would be so informative and detailed. Joshua is very good, makes an impressive cake using simple techniques and easy to find tools and gives very good advice and decoration ideas. I'm very happy and satisfied!

Loved the Free Course completely. I can always go back if I don't understand or missed anything. The instructor spoke clearly and was not in a rushing his words like you commonly see in most videos.

Love it!!

I love this class! I am new at making professional quality cakes so it was very nice to get such quality training for free. I literally watched this video as I made a cake. I feel that I'm one step ahead by learning the tips and tricks taught here. My favorite has to be the cake cutting technique to cut a level cake.
