NEW YORK CITY — City Cakes is kicking off October with a master class on elevated cake sculpting using tips and tricks from Chef Benny Rivera.
The Honu’s Love class will provide advanced bakers with the resources and techniques they need to design and create a structure support system for gravity-defying cakes. This includes help with selecting propper materials and tools, cake distribution planning and determining the right colors for designs.
Attendees will also learn techniques for working with fondant and modeling chocolate, hand-crafting small details, sculpting animals with additive and subtractive processes, and applying different painting techniques based on the design.
Logistics for the master class are as follows:
- Date | Oct. 1
- Time | 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Where | 155 W 18th St. New York, NY
- Cost | $500 per participant
All equipment, materials and tools will be provided for classroom use. The skills will be taught with Styrofoam rather than real cake, and participants will be able to take home their designs to use as a display.
