$45 for a Gourmet Cake-Decorating Class (Up to $90 Value)

Amanda leads a range of cake-decorating classes including holiday-specific Cupcake Decorating sessions; a beginner-level Fun with Fondant class; and the most popular class, Buttercream Basics, which teaches pupils how to level, fill, stack, and crumb coat a 5-inch cake before decorating it with buttercream icing and accents.

Amanda Oakleaf Cakes

Butter, sugar, and flour. These three simple ingredients form the basis of each treat cooked up at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes. While the ingredients are straightforward, the cakes are anything but, as proven by head baker Amanda Oakleaf and the 4-foot-tall Dora the Explorer cake she constructed on the Food Network’s Cake Challenge. At her shop, Amanda and her team of artists, sculptors, and bakers create treats that run the gamut in flavor and function, from elegant tiers of red velvet to sugary cartoon figurines placed atop marshmallow fondant. Guests can dream up flavor combinations such as gingerbread cake slathered in white-chocolate buttercream or chocolate samoa layered in honey icing, or offer up a 3-D object for Amanda and her team to re-create in meticulous, edible detail. Regularly scheduled cake-decorating classes impart visitors with some of the team’s creative tricks of the trade, such as leveling cakes and keeping schoolchildren from swarming in through the doggy door at the sight of snickerdoodle cupcakes.

Customer Reviews

I love the extraordinary talent that she and her team exhibit.. They teach extremely well and are unbelievably organized! They take cake decorating to a whole new level!

Wow, you have made so many amazing cakes! I had been looking for decorating classes around Boston but just didn't want to take Wilson or a chain class. I wanted one on one and this was definitely it! We made fondant, and could creatively decorate. Thanks for the fondant, cake (which was delicious), and let over cupcakes! Super adorable and personable staff, clean and creative bakery, and the instructors were patient and funny. I'll be back, even though it's quite a drive!
