3/29 ROCOCO SHAG CAKE WORKSHOP

Learn how to recreate Bon Vivant Cake's Rococo Shag Cake at home! In this three hour hands-on workshop, learn how to stack, fill, and crumb coat a confetti cake with buttercream, and how to achieve silky smooth Swiss Meringue Buttercream that's perfect for piping. You'll work with colored buttercream and piping bags and tips to create the shaggy, swirly texture that the Rococo Cake is known for, and finish it off with sprinkles and foiled candies.

This class is for people with beginner-intermediate skills- students will be doing a lot of piping, so experience with a piping bag is helpful.
