Become a Great Baker #4: Artistic Black Forest Cake Designs
No previous baking or cake decoration experience is necessary.
Some basic baking utensils such as cake pans and a rolling pin are required.
In this fun and exciting course you’re going to master one of the wonders of German baking: the Black Forest Cake. You’re going to learn everything there is to know about the classic recipes and presentation, and then take it to the next level with show-stopping artistic designs!
Invented in 1934, the Black Forest Cake recipe and presentation are fairly traditional. Developed by award-winning pastry chef Irit Ishai, this course is your ultimate step-by-step guide to creating 3 amazing modern designs for this classic cake: a festive and elegant Holidays Design, a colorful and cheerful Birthday Design, and a clean and elegant Classic Design.
In the course you’ll learn how to make all of the recipes and decorations from scratch using inexpensive tools and fairly simple techniques. Explore the best and most effective methods of making the traditional cake recipes, such as chocolate sponge cake, cherry compote, chocolate ganache and whipped cream filling. Discover secrets and tricks that will help you to assemble the layers of the cake inside a cake ring, just like professional bakers.
Master the art of making sophisticated decorations such as artistic chocolate leaves, and use them to decorate your cakes and desserts. Create multiple elegant and modern presentations for this traditional cake, using the decorations you’ll make and other edible elements!
Along the way you’ll learn many tips and tricks that are only discovered through many years of pro-level work. You’ll also get an in-depth bonus tutorial about chocolate tempering (both manual and using tempering machines). Many of the recipes and techniques you’ll master in this course are extremely useful, and you’ll be able to leverage them while making other baking and pastry projects.
