Rio Salado College’s Cupcake Decorating for Beginners

October 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MST

Come join us for a beginners cupcake decorating workshop.   Watch as one of our professional chefs demonstrates how to make buttercream and talks about the different types of buttercreams.  Should you use gel or food coloring and what’s the best way to incorporate it into your icing?  Is butter better than shortening?  Should I go with salted or unsalted butter?  Learn the answers to these questions  and more.  Once the buttercream is made it’s time to start piping.  Students will work with three different piping tips to create an ice cream swirl, drop blossoms, buttercream swirl and learn how to use a petal tip to make roses and other flowers. 

Rio Salado culinary workshops are designed for the beginner and are fun and low pressure. Workshops are hands on and participants will be standing for the majority of the workshop. Workshops are generally made up of 12 students and we work in teams. We want the group to work safe, learn new techniques and recipes to their culinary repertoire and most importantly, HAVE FUN! Proper kitchen attire is required which includes: closed toe shoes, long pant and long or short sleeve shirt. Please restrain hair while in the kitchen.
