Cake Byte: Cake Central Presents An Intensive Buttercream Technique Class in Seattle

Talk about news you can use (and eat right up). Here's the most delicious headline I've heard in some time: Cake Central Presents an Intensive Four-Day Buttercream Technique Class with Lucinda Larson.
It's true! Per a press release sent to me by the fantastic Cake Central, "we are proud to announce that Chef Lucinda Larson will be teaching a four-day intensive course on several buttercream decorating techniques."
Want to know what you can expect? Lucinda’s class includes four days of intensive, hands-on buttercream education for the intermediate to advanced decorator. Students will learn dozens of buttercream flowers and foliage piping in addition to learning and tasting different buttercream preparations. This fast-paced course will also include instruction on airbrushing on buttercream, color theory, color mixing, border piping, and figure piping. 
Want to know more about the teacher? Lucinda Larson is known for her buttercream work, gumpaste flowers, and extraordinary use of color. She has owned and operated a custom order bakery for over 14 years, and she has been teaching since 1981.
