The Wilton Method®: Stunning Small Cakes

with Valerie Pradhan
Make a big entrance with just one tier. Decorate using striking sugar flowers, geometric patterns, metallic stripes and more as you create small cakes that have big style!

Join Wilton cake decorator Valerie Pradhan and learn techniques that combine dimension, color and texture into four small, standout designs. Decorate the Flower Overlay Cake where vibrant sugar flowers enhanced with brush embroidery pop against a dark background. Make the Fantasy Flower Cake with a cascade of carnations, quilled and ruffled flowers and ribbon roses. Tackle the Mosaic Cake to create a pattern of geometric tiles layered with shades of blue, green and purple and top it all off with an on-trend succulent. Finally, paint the bold Metallic Striped Cake and finish it with a peony-inspired flower. Gain all the skills you need to ensure your small cakes measure up!

Lesson plan


Lesson 1. Meet Valerie & Get Started

  • Meet your instructor, Wilton's Valerie Pradhan, and preview the four amazing small cakes you'll make in this class. Discover how these cakes are perfect for intimate gatherings or as stars of your dessert table. Valerie starts by demonstrating how to stack, crumb coat and cover an extended tier with fondant. These super-tall 6" (15 cm) cakes are the base for all of the projects you'll make in this class.

Lesson 4. Mosaic Cake & Succulents


Lesson 5. Metallic Striped Cake

"This was a great class. There was nothing small about those cakes — each one had its own individuality and was larger than life. Would recommend as a must-take! Great job, Valerie."
