I'm teaching a three hour beginning cake decorating class for a group at my church. They have no cake decorating experience. What would you teach in that 3 hours? Ideas would be appreciated.

I would teach the basics on torting, crumb coating and covering a cake with buttercream. Then the piping of the border. That is going to take at least 3 hours, don't you think? If not throw some fondant their way and let them roll out flowers. Teaching a beginning class sounds like so much fun. Your church group will love it!

I guess if it were me I would start with the basics. How to make bc icing, icing consistency, filling decorater bag, correct bag position and then maybe go over a few of the icing tips and techniques. There's not a lot you can teach in 3 hours unless they already know the basics. Hope this helped. Good luck.

i agree with all the above and maybe if you have time you could also get them to practice piping writing eg happy birthday etc

I agree with the PPs but I'd also try to do something 'fun' but easy like maybe drop flowers or using the star tip to fill a simple design.
