These days, cakes are towering works of art with gravity-defying, whimsical designs; the opportunities are as exciting as they are endless. For students 15 and up and adults of all ages, The French Pastry School in Chicago offers a chance to explore all that the world of cake decorating has to offer. In this five-day, hands-on course, Chef Sunny Lee will take you through classic cake recipes that are perfect for special occasions.

Over the course of five days, you will make two complete cakes: one, a sculpted cake with real cake and tasty buttercream; and the second, a tiered confection covered in smooth fondant. You'll learn how to cover both real cakes and "Dummy Cakes" (styrofoam cylinders used by cake decorators the world over), and how to properly stack tiers.

Recipes may include:



Royal Icing


Sugar Decoration

Cake Sculpting

Chef Sunny will teach you everything you need to know in a comfortable kitchen environment so you can use your new knowledge at home. Be prepared to take your beautiful finished projects home.
