Description

Chalkboard cakes are all the rave right now, they are extremely fashionable in the cake decorating world.

Watch Polly "Pixie" Nemeth decorate a cake in a chalkboard style. We go through it step by step, from covering the cake with fondant to painting it, and then creating each of the foods featured on the cake.

We go through every step from cutting the cake to adding the ganache, covering it in fondant. Then creating the chalkboard effect, painting the cake, and finally creating the food items you see around the cake.

The course is 55 minutes but very detailed so you will need to pause it while decorating the cake.

If you are a beginner or intermediate cake decorator then this is a great course to learn.

Who is the target audience?
  • beginner or intermediate cake decorator
  • someone able to lay fondant on a cake already
