Hello and welcome to Sweets Academy Japan, INDY ASSA!
My name is Asami, a pastry chef from Japan.
In this course, I’d like to introduce you to Minimalist cake.
Have you heard of Minimalist cake which has become popular in Korea and around the world lately?
In the past, cakes with lots of fruit and dramatic decorations were popular, but recently simple designs have also become popular as they are refreshing, stylish and sleek. This recipe is similar to the Western style buttercream cake, but personally, I prefer a light, not too sweet cake rather than a dense sponge cake with rich buttercream. Therefore, I have taken the time to perfect it in my own style. I am excited to share it with you!
In this course, we’re gonna learn soft and fluffy Japanese sponge cake, a rich yet light cream cheese filling and a silky buttercream for the outside.
Whether you want to make this cake for your loved one's birthday or you are a professional chef who wants to add another dessert to your repertoire, this cake is just what you need.
I’m going to show you not only the recipe, but common mistakes and the solutions, and other helpful tips. Unlike when you just watch the average cooking video, you can ask me questions anytime on my Q&A page.
Are you ready to jump in and learn new styles of delectable cakes?
