In the beginning of April, we flew out to Denver to film our first class with Craftsy titled “Simply Buttercream Celebration Cakes that will debut May 2. This was quite an honor for us since we were contacted by Craftsy to be instructors, and film a class focusing on a beginner level class demonstrating the making of buttercream, frosting cakes, piping stripe patterns, and of course, our Signature White Flower Flowers! In Denver, we met our production team-A producer, talent coach, editor and film crew, who were all super talented and made us feel right at home. It was nerve-wracking in the beginning being away from our kitchen and cake shoppes, being on set in a production studio, having to read a teleprompter, follow a script, and essentially “perform” while making cakes and teach to an imaginary student behind the camera…..not to mention as a Mom I had to be away from my little girl for a week! But we got the hang of it after a few days, and filmed what we feel will be a great class. Filming online classes is something we have been doing for the past 2 years with our Online School of Decorating that we started back in September of 2014. Our mission with our Online school was to educate people on how to decorate with buttercream frosting, something that we have been so passionate about for so many years! Partnering with Craftsy gives the opportunity to reach a much larger audience, and hopefully will inspire people to love buttercream as much as we do!
Here are a few behind the scenes pictures from our adventure. We can’t wait for the debut of the class!
