Great Wedding Cake Class

Mar 16, 2008 | From the kitchen of Rose

Jan Kish is hands down the most talented cake decorator ever to have graduated from Cordon Rose, my former cooking school. Since that time, which is over 20 years ago, she opened Jan Kish - La petite Fleur, and has been producing breathtaking cakes which she ships all over the world. She has also appeared many times in Brides magazine, and on the Good Morning America Show and the Food Network.

For the first time, Jan will be sharing her exceptional skills in two 1-day 6 hour seminars Homespun Wedding Cakes -- at La Cuisine in Alexandria Virginia www.lacuisineus.com on Saturday, April 19, and in Columbus, Ohio www.jankish.com on Sunday, May 4. In this class, Jan will delve into the “anatomy of the wedding cake” Her objective is to transform you from novice to semi-professional in six hours (and perhaps a wee bit more). She will take you from imagination, to design, to creation, while demonstrating how the techniques you learn can then be applied to other celebration cakes.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Note: There will also be a second-class on Sunday, April 20 at La Cuisine on “How to Cater Your Own Wedding.”

Hi Rocio,
There are several websites that list classes and schools for cake decorations.
For this blog site, we suggest that you post this on the Forums section, which will give your request more visibility for our baking community to give suggestions for possible classes and locations.

I would love to know if you will have a class in Ohio again?

REPLY

donika, the above classes are given by jan kish, not me. i studied gumpaste at the wilton school in chicago many years ago and if they are still teaching it they are an excellent option should jan not be holding any classes in the near future. her site is listed here under my favorites.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HOLD ANOTHER CLASS IN THE VA AREA

REPLY

Thank you Matthew! I just now looked through TCB and realized I completely skipped over those recipes containing oil!

REPLY

Hi Tyler, Rose has some oil cakes in the Cake Bible already, and she does not use that method for any of those cakes. I haven't tried what you are suggesting, but I don't think the texture would be as good--probably for the same reason why you use softened not melted butter in the butter cakes.

REPLY

This is waaaay off topic of this posting, but...:

I know Rose is currently away, but there are so many talented bakers on here that may be able to help me: I'm making a carrot cake, but instead of "creaming" the oil with the sugar and all that, I want to make it the way Rose does. Since the oil is the only liquid in the cake, should I mix 1/4 of it with the vanilla, then proceed with whipping the rest of the oil with the dry ingredients and adding the oil/vanilla mix in 3 batches? I hope this makes sense!

Tyler

I would love to know if there will be any classes in the Boston area too!

REPLY

Will she be offering the class in the DC area in 2009?

REPLY

Amanda - I'm totally guessing here, but it looks like gumpaste ruffles to me.

REPLY

Is that chocolate curls or some sort of flower petal? This cake is so classy and cool..it is the inspiration for my cake!

REPLY

Do you ever offer this type of class in the Boston area?

REPLY

Bummer... I just received word that the class was cancelled - apparently not enough people signed up. I'm so disappointed.
