Teens at Whisk – Batter Up: Cakes, Cakes and More!
This 5-day camp is designed for teens ages 13 and up.
MONDAY, July 5th – FRIDAY, July 9th
FROM 2:00PM – 4:00PM
Cakes are the perfect way to celebrate any occasion, and perfect cakes can be achieved with just a touch of skill and some patience. In this hands-on class led by Chef Lee Baker, students will learn how to properly measure, mix, bake, fill, frost and decorate cakes. We’ll start with basic cake formulas to build up confidence and end with more advanced, composed, layer cakes. Specific skills include proper measuring, different mixing techniques, how to test for doneness (from cakes to custards), and – last but not least – layering and decorating for picture perfect cakes!
