Sauk Valley Community College will offer the right way to learn how to decorate cakes step by step with “Wilton Cake Decorating Basics – Course 1,” from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Wednesdays February 16 and 23, in Room 2L6 at Sauk.
In this two-session class, participants will discover how to bake a great cake, see how to make and color icing, learn the best way to ice a cake, learn to create drop flowers, rosettes, shells, pompom flowers, leaves, shaggy mums, and the Wilton ribbon rose.
On the first night of class, students will need to bring a hand mixer, bowls for frosting, ingredients to make icing (one pound of powdered sugar, one cup of shortening, and flavoring like vanilla), and hand towels. A supply kit will be available for purchase from the instructor for about $30.
Cost for this class is $60. To register, stop by Sauk’s Office of Admissions, Room 1J1, between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays or between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays.
