 Romance has never gone out of style and the Romance cake decorating class gives everyone a chance to create handmade roses and flowers. Members of the class will each create a romantic lace cake and learn piping techniques to create the perfect cake for that romantic moment. Rachel, cake decorating instructor at Charm City Cakes West, will help each student create that “Love is in the air” feeling on their own cake.
