Master Class with Chelsey White
We had such a fun night with Chelsey White from the famously mesmerizing @chelsweets!! Chelsey has taken the dessert world by storm with her viral cake making & decorating videos. Lucky for me, we’ve also become good friends as we both try to navigate the NYC dessert scene!
For those that don't know, Chelsey White, is the content creator behind Chelsweets Bakery! She recently left her job in corporate finance to turn her love of baking into a full-time career. She single-handedly recipe tests, films, edits, and blogs each of her cakes, sharing all of her tips and tricks with her followers.
With colorful frosting, and simple yet beautiful techniques, her charming videos and tutorials have garnered millions of views and captivated our class last week!
We made Chelsey Easy Vanilla Cupcake Recipe and her classic Vanilla Buttercream. BUT, these cupcakes had a twist! Each participant got to pick a flavor of edible cookie dough to stuff into their cupcakes. There were so many yummy combinations - Brookie Dough, Fluffernutter, Cake Batter, and even our September seasonal, Buckeye!
During the class, Chelsey talked about:
- Making her own wedding cake
- What she does with ALL of the cakes she makes
- Why she quit her job
- And how she's built her business by NOT selling her cakes!
While the cupcakes cooled, each person in the class got to do a frosting "worksheet" (exactly my type of homework!!) to practice their piping skills. Then we topped our cupcakes with frosting, added all sorts of sprinkles, and stole bites of cookie dough along the way!
All this fun was for a good cause - a portion of every ticket went to She's The First.
If you loved the class, or are wishing you were there, I have some good news!! Chelsey also offers private cake lessons, as well as group cupcake decorating classes. Check out her website for more details!
