Cooking Class: Cake-Baking With a Pastry Chef

After this cake-centered cooking class with Chef Crys, your homemade cakes will never be the same! Demystify the expert methods, techniques and ingredients used to create perfectly-textured, artful-looking cakes with pastry chef Chef Crys as your guide.

Start out with classic pound cake as you combine no-frills cake ingredients to create miniature old-fashioned butter Bundt cakes. Spread a heavenly homemade mascarpone whipped cream over these decadent treats before discovering the most scrumptious secret cake ingredient: olive oil. Using olive oil, you'll create an impressively moist, spongey cake infused with the bright, elegant flavors of rosemary and lemon. Create a tempting praline and pecan icing to wrap up this insightful lesson.

This class was a Father's Day gift from my sister and I, and we all had such a blast! Chef Crys walked us through the details of each ingredient--we were even able to taste them. I enjoyed learning about where to source healthier ingredients too. Definitely plan to take another cooking class from her. Thank you Classpop for being an awesome online platform where folks can find classes like this, and thank you Chef Crys for sharing your knowledge with us and helping us have a lot of fun! God Bless :D
