"In 'Clean and Simple Cake Design' Jessica taught us the basics of covering a cake with ganache, about modeling chocolate and the wax paper transfer method. In 'Simply Modern Cake Design,' she takes these fundamentals and demonstrates how we can build on them to create true works of art. We are fortunate to have Jessica share her knowledge, skill and creativity. I encourage both novice and experienced cake designers to register for this course to take your cake designs to the next level!"
