NEW ONLINE CLASS: Xiao Long Bao by Allan Mertola

Classic American Cakes

This online class was designed to equip the learner with the necessary knowledge and skill to make three magnificent, American-style cakes, namely: German Chocolate Cake with Coconut-Pecan Filling and Topping, Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and Moist Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. The lessons focus on the basic techniques associated with the production of Western-type cakes, whose characteristics include moist, tender, layers that are melt-in-the-mouth, and dense enough to be stacked into towering structures, juxtaposed with rich, velvety fillings and frostings, such as a very-stable and not-so-sweet cream cheese frosting, a delectable coconut-pecan custard that's bursting with flavor, and an elegant, satiny-smooth dark chocolate ganache. Valuable tips on mise-en-place, ingredient specifications, choice of equipment, storage and shelf-life of the finished products are also included in this much sought-after class for bakers of all ages!
