About The Class
learn all the basics from the Buttercream Queen.
Buttercream is the baker’s best friend, but it can be fussy in both pastry bags and bad weather. Learn buttercream basics from the Buttercream Queen, Lucinda Larson and keep things friendly in the kitchen.
In this course Lucinda will take you through the steps of frosting a cake with buttercream so it is primed for decoration. She’ll offer tried and true troubleshooting tips for working with temperature changes and uncooperative climates and help you keep the cake and all of its embellishments together. You’ll also learn how to prep and use pastry bags using a variety of different tips. Lucinda will teach you techniques for writing, creating borders, adding drop flowers, and shaping leaves.
If you want to add a professional touch to the cakes you bake for your family and friends, join CreativeLive and Lucinda Larson and learn buttercream basics.

Fun topic! But, video needs editing down, better video quality, better sound (very muffled), and there are no-closeups. And saying "it should look like this if I was..." doesn't really help (me). We want to see what she is referring to, not just imagine. The video quality seems really poor, as compared to other classes on CL. And the lighting is not good. Also her head blocks a lot of the shots. she's not really describing what she's doing, and because there aren't closeups, I can't really learn from this. Too bad, I was hoping to have fun and learn a lot on this topic (for fun).
I enjoyed the classes themselves, but the lack of close ups of what Lucinda was doing so I could actually see what she was doing or the differences between the before & afters deters me from spending money on the videos. Thanks for the many hours of fun, Lucinda!
Yes, I did like it. Is simple and short. straight forward. Will try it. thanks.
