Introduction: Tools & Ingredients

About: Hi, I'm Jen! In my free time I'm a crafter, food lover, and cake decorator. I also can't stop taking photographs! I have a genuine love and appreciation for all things creative and handmade.

If you have ever been to the cake decorating section at your local craft supply store you may have noticed that there are literally hundreds of specialty tools and supplies for cake making and decorating. Since one could spend a small fortune buying all of these items (some completely unnecessary) I will limit the amount of specialty tools used in this class to keep costs down.

REQUIRED TOOLS - All of the tools in this list are necessary to complete this class.

OPTIONAL TOOLS - The tools listed below will make some of the steps in this class easier, but none of them are required to create beautiful cakes. I will offer creative solutions and substitutions for the following items that you might find in your home kitchen.


The following is a complete list of ingredients necessary to make all the recipes in this class. A breakdown for amounts and specific recipes will be provided in the appropriate lessons.

Step 1: Up Next: Lesson 3 — Chocolate Ganache

If you have all of your tools and ingredients gathered, let's get started with delicious chocolate ganache!
