Introducing the mini class series: 30-45 minute bursts to learn a new baking skill!
This mini class will go over piping, a skill that elevates all your baked goods! Piping is all about practice and feeling comfortable with creating different shapes.
The class will start by making a big batch of buttercream to practice our shapes with. Then we’ll go over:
- how to place a piping tip in a pastry bag correctly
- filling and refilling a pastry bag
- methods for holding a pastry bag
- lots of different shapes with my favorite tips: round tip, open star tip, star tip with short prongs, st honore tip
- removing the piping tip from the bag
For each piping style, there will be a demo and then time to practice with lots of fun French music in the background.
Class time: Wednesday, October 28th
6pm Paris | 1pm EDT | 12pm CDT | 10am PDT LIVE on Zoom! for 30-45 minutes
