How to Make the Perfect Buttercream Frosting {with a modern twist}

Recently I was asked to take a look at a few classes from an amazing website called Craftsy. I am excited to share those classes with you here over the next year. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I heard of Craftsy. I didn’t expect to find such an extraordinary resource. But it is really an invaluable wealth of information.

Modern Buttercream

Craftsy’s, Modern Buttercream class is such a great tool to use as you expand your knowledge of cooking. As moms, we cook (or at least almost every day)!  Maybe you are the “chef” of your child’s birthday party, or volunteer “gourmet baker” for your child’s class or sports team. Regardless of the occasion, you know as well as I do, we need all the cooking tips we can get our hands on!

Joshua John Russell put together this class in such a simple way that it is easy to follow and learn how to make the perfect and delicious modern buttercream frosting. Who doesn’t love frosting?! He also gives great tips on how to prepare the cake for decorating (crumbs in the frosting anyone?!) and he shows a few fun ways to decorate the cake after it is frosted. If you have ever dreamed of being able to make a layered cake, this is the class for you. In practical fashion, this class will walk you step by step toward your next tasty treat!

One of the best things about taking the class online, besides the valuable information, was the ability to start the class and pause the class whenever I needed to. When the kids were in bed, or when I had a few minutes during the day to spare, I would sit down and watch a bit of the course in the comfort of my own home. It was so convenient! Craftsy is the perfect solution for us busy moms who want to learn, but don’t have time to leave the house and attend a class.
