"Clean & Simple Birthday Cakes" - The Class is LIVE!!!!

It's here...finally!!!

My third online class with Craftsy has just launched and I'm so excited to share it with you!!!!




And, because I love you all, I'm giving you my personal sweet and special discount of 50% off this class!!  Click right HERE to check out what's in the class and get the $20 discount!!!! 

This is my magnum opus! :) - my last class and my favorite class because it's inspired by my three amazingly fun and cute kids!

The theme of the class is sculpting with rice crispy treats but there's much much more to it than just that.  What's fun is that there is very little "hand" sculpting involved because I show you some super simple tricks to get perfect shapes using things around your house.  I also have a VERY new and fantastic technique to get your rice crispy treats SUPER smooth so you can put on a really thin coating of ganache/buttercream or a thick one if you'd like.  But, no more lumpy rice crispy treat sculptures!!

I also heard all your requests to help you with fonts and texts and how to get signs, fonts and text on your cakes.  I show you several easy and simple ways that involve hand painting, using edible images, Tappits and more.  You will gain all the tools you need to put any graphic/font on a cake in a very clean and simple way!

But, that's not all!! - I show you a fun new way to achieve ombre colors simply, how to texture wood grain and cover your cake boards, plus provide you with TONS of template so you can create all the cakes in the pictures above really really easily!!  Nothing is left to chance...you will be able to make clean and simple birthday cakes!!!

OH, and one more thing...Photoshop! - yes...there is a bonus Photoshop lesson on how you can use the templates and cake sketches I provide to change up the patterns and colors so you can customize these designs to fit your party and your theme!!!

SOOOO much fun!!!  I can't wait to share it with you!!!

**Again, click HERE for 50% off this class**

I hope you enjoy it!! :)

  1. I'm so excited about this one!!! It came a few days too late since I was making a cake for my dad on Saturday and tried to do the waves and sailboats like you did since they were so cute and perfect for his cake (the theme was Maine - his favorite place!) and I was wishing I had your class since I struggled with lining up the waves! Can't wait to try the class. Now I need to make sure my hubby doesn't mind if I buy it! :)

    1. Yes, they are all online!! :) I would HIGHLY recommend taking my first class, "Clean & Simple Cake Design". I wish someone would have done this class when I started out as it would have CHANGED the way I did everything and would have saved me so much time/effort/money!! :) Here's a link for 50% off:

      Then, if you like it, take the second one "Simply Modern Cake Design" because I go a little more indepth and show how to make tall cakes, cover a lot about metallics, edible silver leaf, wafer paper and more.

      This latest one is FUN and is all about rice crispy treats, lettering, ombre techniques, and more. So...this one can be taken second too...depends on what types of cakes you like to make.

      They are all different...but for sure the first one is your best bet and best beginner class on Craftsy. I hope that doesn't sound prideful...I don't mean it to...but you'll see! :) I did it with a HUGE heart to help you all because like I said, I wish these tips/techniques would have been in video form like this when I started.

      Blessings!!! :)

    1. Thank you SO much!! Craftsy has been incredible to work with and I feel so honored to be apart of their family. They'd love for me to come back, but I feel like I'm maxed out with class interaction and time online right now. Plus, preparing and filming a class is an incredible amount of work and time away from my family. I LOVE being a full time mommy and home school my kids...so, for me, being at home right now is where I want to be. It's been an incredible experience but I look forward to making cakes for my own friends and family again. Thank you so much for asking! :) Blessings!

  4. Just wondering why this is your last class?
    Does Craftsy have a limit or do you?

    I wouldn't mind a few more personally.

    1. No they don't have a limit! :) - I do. They have been incredible to work with, but I feel like I'm maxed out with class interaction and cake projects.
