Avid baker and decorator Jennifer McRoberts passes on her love of dessert artistry in intimate fondant, royal-icing, and buttercream-based cake-decorating classes for one to four people, conveniently scheduled by appointment. After the 2–4 hour class, students can take their personally embellished cake home to eat or display in a street-facing window. In fondant classes, students can muse over the fashion forwardness of wearing a fondant jacket as they learn to cover a cake with the creamy sugar paste. Cake cosmetologists can also explore the art of crafting edible roses, learn how to make marshmallow fondant, and familiarize themselves with an assortment of decorating tools. During royal-icing class, Jennifer teaches students to make homemade royal icing and utilize the basket-weave technique to design a sweet cake basket lined with sugary flowers. Students can discuss Picasso's red-velvet period as they learn to level, fill, and frost cake with fresh buttercream, and line cake edges with different borders and colorful frosting flowers.
House of Cake
Jennifer McRoberts took a cake-decorating class that ignited an already present passion for baking. In 2008, she decided to open her own business, House of Cake, from which she sells a variety of handmade, hand-designed treats, such as birthday and wedding cakes, cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, and cake in a jar, shippable mason jars stuffed to the brim with sweet frosting, fillings, and cake bites. McRoberts also brings her skills to her kitchen at home, where she’s licensed to teach lessons in cake decorating.
