Class Sessions

Round Cakes (16:21)
Meet your instructor, Rachael Teuffel, who starts class by helping you prep fondant and measure your cake, before demonstrating how to roll out and drape fondant. Then attach your fondant to the cake, also practicing Rachael’s expert advice for crisp edges, smooth sides and no puckering.

Troubleshooting (12:30)
Cake didn’t come out exactly as planned? Rachael guides you through the most common problems that occur on round cakes and how to fix them, from puckered edges to fondant tails and more. Plus, get her special recipe for patching holes, rips or tears.

Squares & Double Barrels (21:33)
Boost your cake confidence as you learn the proper order of operations for tackling square cakes with sharp, crisp corners. Next, find out how to embrace the double-barrel trend by wrapping your extra-tall cakes instead of draping them. There’s plenty of troubleshooting tips to pick up along the way!

Shaped Cakes (9:21)
Discover how to cover novelty cakes that have convex, concave and uneven surfaces (even tight spaces!). No matter the shape of your cake, you can cover it. As you go, Rachael introduces you to some of the solves you can count on when things go off track.
