Ina-Rend Lake College Community Education announces three upcoming Cake Decorating classes for the public. Community Education classes are non-credit classes that offer lifelong learning opportunities for self development, personal challenge and leisure enjoyment for students of all ages.
These classes have been made available to anyone interested in learning about cake decorating. They have been scheduled in three different locations: Benton, Mt. Vernon and the RLC Main Campus in Ina.
The first class will be held on three Tuesday evenings, September 22nd-October 6th from 6-8p.m. in the Student Center Culinary Lab at Rend Lake College main campus in Ina.
The registration fee is $30. Students will learn the best way to make cakes and icing. Instructor Beth Mandrell will show students tips on decorating, and will let students use her tools and icing tips so they can try them out before they buy them. Students will need to bring a cake to the second and third sessions. A $6 supply fee payable to the instructor at the first class will cover the costs of bags, tips, and icing for all three sessions.
The second class will be held on four Thursday evenings, October 8th-29th from 6:30-8:30p.m. at Benton High School in Room 109. The registration fee is $40. Students will learn basic cake decorating skills, such as cake assembly, flower making, fondant icing, character cakes, and specialty cupcakes for children. Beth Williams will instruct on different tips and decorating bags used. A supply list will be provided the first night of class, as well as an icing recipe. Students will need to bring their own supplies and make their own icing and cakes for sessions 2, 3 and 4.
The third class is called "Cake Decorating for Fun". This class will be held on Tuesday, October 13th from 6-8p.m. in Room 354A at the Rend Lake College Marketplace in Mt. Vernon. The registration fee is $12. No special talent or experience is required. Students will learn from instructor Beth Mandrell's demonstrations, as well as hands-on experience. Participants will discover tips on baking, making icing, and types of decorating equipment to use for edging, drawing, and flowers. Students will decorate a cake with a fall theme. All supplies, including the cake that each student will take home, will be furnished for a supply fee of $8 payable to the instructor at the start of class.
