Did you know that Craftsy offers FREE Cake Decorating Videos? I haven’t talked about these in quite a while but today seemed like a good day to share! I know I have some new readers and many regular readers that have missed out! One of the newest Free Craftsy Cake Decorating Videos – Marbled Fondant with Joshua John Russell.
And if you love the technique and want to try it or buy the supplies, Craftsy has them listed for you right there on the page with the video! Go see here –> http://shrsl.com/?ejo1.
By the way, do you know who Joshua John Russell is? I do… because I’m a Food Network (Cake) Challenge junkie – I watched every episode he was ever on (I think) … and some of them twice!
I’ve watched the class (there are 5 separate videos) and I really enjoyed them! All five videos combined is about an hour and fifteen minutes, but you can watch it in sections if you don’t have that much time at once!!
Actually, once you sign up (with just your email address), you have access to the videos for life… to watch once or one hundred times!
Now I’m gonna be honest – I don’t use some of these techniques and I’ve never made (or even tasted) Swiss Buttercream. But really, I’m not a pastry chef people… I’m just a simple girl. Who happens to do cake. With American Buttercream.
However, you will see that he does use bubble tea straws to stack his cakes similar to the way I do it. And you’ll also see a cool use for those leftover butter wrappers from making that American (or Swiss) buttercream and some other really fun tips and techniques!
My recommendation… if you have some extra time and want a little free cake education… go watch this class and the free marbled fondant tutorial (it’s less than 7 minutes… you’ve got the time!)! I think that if you’re a baker or cake decorator at any skill level – there are lots of things to learn!
