Meet Dédé Wilson, founder of Bakepedia and your guide to delicious coffee-shop cakes. As you jump into making your first cake, a cinnamon crumb cake, you'll learn some essential baking techniques, from measuring to creaming and mixing. You can also try a modern flavor variation.
The classic pound cake is an incredible combination of qualities: dense, moist and delicious. There's no leaven to help create a tender crumb, so Dédé shows you tricks for working with ingredients and choosing the right pan to get you the results you desire.
What makes a modern pound cake modern can be summed up in one word: leaven. Dédé shows how a little rise can help you get the taste and texture you want in these delicious variations on the classic cake: marbled for the chocoholics in your life, and lemon poppy seed for citrus lovers.
The classic streusel coffee cake is the first to combine three different elements, along with a ring pan. Watch as Dédé takes the crumb topping from Lesson 1 and adds nuts, then layers it into her batter. Then watch as she demonstrates the proper way to make a glaze for an added dimension of flavor.
This lesson is all about pans and the incredible designs you can achieve by having the right tools. Watch as Dédé bakes two cakes, an almond tea cake and brown sugar-apple cake, and shares techniques for making the perfect caramel drizzle and getting the most out of nut toppings.
The ridges of the bundt pan give this cake its signature shape. Dédé adds a sweet secret to this classic with a "tunnel" of flavor. Watch as she prepares a coconut-filled chocolate cake inspired by Almond Joy candy bars. Then learn how to make a blueberry bundt cake that is out of this world.
Dédé finishes the class with a series of invaluable tips on the tools you'll be using in your kitchen. No two pans are created equal, and she'll show you how to find the right one for the right job. She'll also reveal a number of insider secrets to ensure you're always working with the best ingredients.
