CAKE STYLING WORKSHOP with Upstate Table
Date: Sunday, November 18
Location: The Wythe Hotel
Learn how to create beautiful layer cakes at home using several simple techniques with The Upstate Table’s Rebecca Miller Ffrench. Even if you’ve never touched a pastry bag, she’ll show you how easy it is to handle one. She’ll share her favorite icing and fillings recipes, and she’ll walk you through the process of frosting your own naked, semi-naked, or fully frosted layered cake—and you’ll get to decorate it with fresh flowers and fruits, edible garnishes, and other delicious toppings. She’ll even show you how you to add gold leaf to cake. Rebecca will also share creative ideas for styling dessert tables. The best part, you get to take your cake home! Dessert done.
