The Wilton Method®: Buttercream Skills

Learn to pipe the buttercream decorations of your dreams, and apply your skills through three festivity-friendly cake projects. Expert cake decorator Beth Somers teaches all the essentials, from achieving the perfect icing consistency and color to filling and handling different styles of decorating bags. With confidence in the basics, you’ll be ready to use star tips to pipe borders, zigzags, scrolls, and much more. Attach a round tip to start piping stringwork, latticework, Cornelli lace and writing. Then switch to petal, basket weave and grass tips to pipe textured decorations that make your designs pop! You’ll even use a flower nail to bring ribbon roses and shaggy mums to life with ease.

Thanks for a great class! This is a very informative series ~ clearly demonstrated and very easy to follow. The cakes are beautiful and can be adapted for a variety of events, allowing a decorator to produce lovely cakes with just a few tips and techniques. I actually took this class hands-on with an instructor, but in review, learned more from this video class on technique.
