Class Overview

Your birthday girl will feel like royalty when you make a princess castle cake - complete with turrets, flags and an adorable fondant figurine. If a pink palace isn’t your preferred theme, Sharon shows you a medieval twist for a knightly castle and another fun variation that creates a lighthouse topper on a cookie-crumb sandcastle. gIn this technique-based class, you’ll learn to design, carve and sculpt your castle cakes before applying a smooth ganache crumb coat. Sharon’s methods are as practical as her creations are whimsical. She’ll teach you time-saving tips to efficiently imagine, build and embellish your cakes with textured fondant, modeled figurines and realistic shading.
