Classic Cakes

We eat cakes to celebrate birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and almost any other holiday you can think of. But most home cooks think it’s easier to order a cake from a professional that it is to make their own. Cake making requires precision and careful attention to detail, but armed with the techniques and recipes you’ll learn in this course, you’ll be able to turn out bakery-style cakes—including ultimate chocolate cupcakes, authentic New York cheesecake, and classic layer cake—for any occasion.
