Class Overview

Evoke the delicious charm of every season using cake designer Erica O'Brien's unique techniques and cake decorating ideas. Deliver a Winter Cake with the inviting texture of a knit sweater, a classic Nordic star motif and pompoms with playful movement. Create a Spring Cake wrapped in flirty eyelet lace and blissfully accentuated by sweet potato vine leaves and cherry blossoms made from gum paste. Make a Summer Cake bursting with colorful confetti, shining with a bright gold tier and topped with Erica's signature patent leather bow. Decorate a Fall Cake with toasty, neutral colors and lace doilies accented with a sugar bouquet of eucalyptus leaves, lavender and sage. Use the skills you learn to create cakes that tap into the feel of your clients’ favorite seasons.
