Baking - Creating Your Cake Layers

Luck shouldn’t be a key ingredient in any baking experience. Determined bakers should rely on the application of skills like preparing things in advance, carefully following the recipe, being precise with measurements and understanding their ovens.

This section focuses on all of these areas as I guide you through how to successfully bake the type of cake you need as a basis for your wedding cake!

This section includes a full recipe and a utensil list so you can be prepared upfront.

It also includes a 'troubleshooting' segment to help you recover from mishaps along the way.

Application and assembly - Putting the puzzle together

Bringing all the elements together is one of the most thrilling experiences of the cake baking and decorating process.

After going through painstaking efforts to bake firm and moist cakes, whipping buttercream into deliciousness, it’s all going to come to a satisfying conclusion in this section.

Apply buttercream filling to your torted cakes, cover your cakes in buttercream and create a smooth, clean and sharp edged finish with an abstract 'paint-like' design.

The beauty of this design is that it can live on well after the holidays are over - master all the techniques, switch up the colour palettes and have a cake design you can create over and over again.

FAQ

  • Who is this module for?

    This module is for you if you're just starting out with baking and decorating and would like to step up to the challenge of constructing a single-tiered cake decorated and filled with buttercream with some abstract decorating techniques.

    It's also for any intermediate bakers who are simply interested in up-skilling and growing as an amateur cake baker and decorator, ready to learn a new style of cake and cake desig which can be used over and over again.

    Last but not least, it's for anyone that is curious about going behind-the-scenes of my practice and getting more insight into my style of baking and decorating.

  • Do I need to own the CBC Foundational Module or any other CBC Online Learning Modules to understand this module?

    While all the modules in the 'Cakes By Cliff Online Course' are designed to work together, you do not need to own the 'CBC Foundational Module: Buttercream Wedding Cakes' or any other of my online learning modules to buy this one and understand the contents within.

    It is an independent module that does not assume any prior knowledge taken from any other of my online learning modules.

    It was created to be a stand-alone learning experience, complete with all the reference guides (including full recipes, utensil list and ingredients list), video tutorials and trouble shooting questions required to successfully complete it and succeed independently to any of the other learning modules in my online course.

  • Will this module be updated regularly?

    I am always open to feedback about my online course modules and will regularly evaluate the content to ensure it is as relevant as possible. Having said that, in my experience, this particular module has few areas of focus that are likely to rapidly change or become out of date.

    I endeavour to check the modules every quarter for relevancy and accuracy and will update as required. Any updates that are made and uploaded will be announced via my website (www.cakesbycliff.com) and all enrolled students will automatically receive them.

  • What is the refund policy on this module?
