With wit and wisdom, Mike will teach you how to sculpt your cake and decorate it with lifelike features made out of fondant and modeling chocolate, using reference photos of your subject. The oversized head offers the advantages of easier carving, lots of cake to serve, and best of all, a light-hearted and humorous way to celebrate your subject. This cake-decorating class also includes some serious cake-stand construction. You’ll learn how to build a sturdy and customized support structure before stacking layers of delicious cake reinforced with buttercream — recipes included!
