I booked into the Basics 101 course at Planet Cake in June and had been eagerly counting down the days and finally the wait was over!
I arrived at the Planet Cake headquarters in Balmain a little early on Sunday morning and admired their breathtaking creations in the window - and yes, i took photos of everything! We kicked off at 10am with Jessica and Marianne. They were both wonderful teachers, extremely helpful and really made it a fun day. The class was made up of 11 cake lovers who were eager to learn more about this wonderful art and take home the skills to be able to re-create what was taught.
We were taught how to cut a cake into layers (much harder that it looks!!), layer it with gorgeous chocolate ganache, cover the cake and cake board with fondant, create cut out decorations and put them on wires.
Everyone's cake looked wonderful! It was like a rainbow of cakes with each student choosing a different combination...see the group photo for evidence!
A huge thank you to Jessica and Marianne for your support and guidance throughout the day. I cant wait to recreate this cake again at home...may need to have you on speed dial! :)
