Elisa Strauss will teach a cake class in NYC

Carved Cake: The Shoe

Two-Day CAPS Workshop

Join Elisa Strauss for a carved cake class through our Center for Advanced Pastry Studies (CAPS)! CAPS is designed for current industry professionals, offering single- and multi-day continuing education workshops taught by master chefs and critically acclaimed artists from all over the world. At CAPS, you will refine your skills, learn new and innovative techniques, and expand your current repertoire with hands-on classes among peers. What's more, all CAPS classes are approved for American Culinary Federation-certified education hours.

ICE alum and skilled cake designer, author and instructor Chef Elisa Strauss will teach a two-day, hands-on class to help design and decorate your own fashion-shoe cake topper. Chef Elisa will share her secrets for decorating different textures, designs, embellishments and different techniques with you in this class. Participants will be able to take home a shoe-mold kit after the class as well as their creation.
