Overview

Make cakes with no crumbs, no crowning and no cracking, so you have a flawless decorating surface — every time! Join pastry chef Beth Somers as she demystifies bakeware, pan preparation and measuring techniques. You’ll learn the proper way to combine your ingredients and avoid over-mixing, so you always end up with a tender cake. Then, you’ll see how to level the top of your cake and cut it into layers to make room for your luscious, homemade filling. Beth also will teach you how to use a spatula to spread smooth, crumb-free icing and another “tip” for achieving a rich, textured look. To top it all off, you’ll pipe an easy, elegant star border and embellish further with wonderful decorations!
