Cake Decorating Classes

Cake Decorating Classes


Frost offers 2 different cake decorating classes. Classes are $75 and are taught at Frost's bakery production facility in Bartlett, Tennessee.  This is a real, operational bakery and is the nicest facility of its kind in the Mid-south. A tour of this facility is part of each class.

Frost classes are taught using Frost techniques by Frost cake decorators. Because they decorate cakes for Frost customers every day, they are up-to-date on the latest cake decorating ideas, tools and techniques.    

All of the necessary tools and equipment for each class are supplied by Frost for student use during the class.  Cake layers or crumb-coated cakes are also included, eliminating the need for students to bring their own cake.  At the end of the class each student takes home their finished Frost 9" cake, the same cakes that are sold in Frost's retail store for $38.

Yelp Review

“The Coconut Cake was very coconuty and sweet. Yummy. The Banana Nut Cake tasted like a sweeter version of Banana Nut Bread. It still has the denseness and earthiness to it, which I liked.”
