After watching this FREE video by Joshua John Russell: Modern Buttercream, I had to tell you about it!

It’s a great video that shows you how to make icing and also includes all the steps involved in preparing and icing the cake.

After you watch the video, you will not only know how to make a delicious buttercream icing rich in flavor using unique and original ingredients, you will also know how to prepare a cake, level it, cover it with icing, layer it, and even add a few simple decorations.

I was very impressed with his recipe.  It’s not one I have heard of. That’s what makes this class so wonderful is his original and unique ingredients.  I’ve always  made buttercream with just butter and powdered sugar, but he has unique ingredients in addition to these that make it so much more fluffy and creamy.

You’ll  never guess how he does it!!  You’ll have to watch the video to see all his secrets revealed! 🙂

He also throws in a lot of secret tips and tricks when making the icing and when you are icing the cake.  He shows you what tools to use so you can be quick and it still look professional.

I did a little research on him and found that he is a professional cake designer with a degree in bakery and pastry arts.  Doesn’t that sound like the funnest degree, ever?!!

His class is broken down into 6 easy lessons.  You can watch them as you wish. That’s the great thing about it being an online class. You can watch it all in one sitting, or stop and come back to the lesson at any time.  You can even watch it again to make sure you didn’t miss anything!

This great FREE course is offered through Craftsy.  Have you ever heard of Craftsy?  If not, you are in for a real treat!!

He shares his recipe and all the tools you will need to make the icing and ice the cake in the video!
