3 Days of Wedding Cakes: San Francisco Baking Institute!

This last week was a bakers dream. I spent three days at the San Francisco Baking Institute, learning the art of Wedding cake making. What an experience. We learned how to make gumpaste flowers, modeling chocolate roses, piping techniques, how to make buttercream, how to use fondant and so much more. I can’t wait to share with all of you some of the techniques I’ve learned! At the end of the course, I walked away with 2 beautiful two-tiered wedding cakes! And a whole bunch of baguettes, SFBI sure knows how to make bread!

Here are a few pictures!

This is a golden chiffon cake filled with apricot jam, and a Swiss buttercream. I hand made all of the flowers out of gum paste!
