Cake Class at Viking
We are having fun at the Viking Cooking School. We did another class and this time it was all about cakes! We made five cakes in five hours!! The time went quickly because we were having loads of fun!!
First, we made a red velvet layer cake with cream cheese frosting. This was my first time making a red velvet cake! I loved the bright red color! This is the perfect cake for Valentine's day too!
Next, we made coconut cupcakes with a swiss buttercream frosting. The cupcakes were really cute and had a great coconut flavor, but I personally don't like swiss buttercream..it is too buttery for my likings:)
We also made a chocolate sheath cake. The frosting was silky smooth and the cake was very very decadent!! Easy to make though!! Nothing fancy, you bake it in a 9 by 13 pan, so there is nothing to fuss over!
Then, we made a five flavor pound cake. It had vanilla, coconut, lemon, rum, and almond extracts! We baked it in a tube pan until it was golden brown. When it was finished baking we poked it with holes and poured a glaze all over. This was my favorite one!! It was bursting with flavor and the cake was really moist.
Finally, we made a caramel apple upside down cake. We baked the cake in a cast iron skillet, with the apples on the bottom. We flipped it over and added a caramel sauce. A very rustic...and delicious dessert!
So we had a busy day in the kitchen! It was fun baking so many different kinds of cakes! Luckily, they didn't make us eat them all...ha! That was a lot of cake! For more information about the Viking Cooking School visit their website: http://www.vikingcookingschool.com

It was a fun class!! I usually don't bake cakes at home because I don't like cake that much, but it was fun to learn different recipes and techniques!
That's so great! You look like you are having a lot of fun... Your creations look wonderful!
What a great class - and so many wonderful cakes! Wow!
What a fun way to spend the day. and to get to try all those different types of cakes!!!
Awesome. I think the caramel apple one would be my favorite! I love cream cheese frosting but not red velvet :/ :)
The caramel apple one looks to die for!!!
I wish my husband liked to cook with me. I think this class would be so fun - you lucky girl.
Jealous!! That looks like SO much fun! The cakes turned out beautiful!
I took a cake decorating class once and I absolutely loved going to class! I didn't miss it for even one week and was never late! It was so much fun!
WOW! 5 cakes in 5 hours?!! It sounds like you're having a great time and the pics of the cakes look delicious!
I would have loved that class. I love baking cakes. Looks like a blast!
Wow, how fun -- I'd be like a kid in a candy shop! Your cakes look fabulous! I hope you got to take some home with you!
The class was so much fun. If there is a Viking school near you I recommend signing up! They offer a variety of classes. It is a fun job for us!
Cathy-They did send cake home with us! There is no way we could eat it all, so we only took some samples!
I need those recipes and QUICK!!! I've got desserts to make and the cupcakes look perfect for the kids!
How fun. What a great way to spend the day.
So what will you do with all of that cake? I can help you with the leftovers.
Wow, this looks like so much fun! I'm jealous. All of the cakes look great.. I especially like the red velvet.
I know a lot of people don't like Swiss Buttercream, but I love that stuff!
I'm a 100% jealous!!! I love cakes. I would love to do that!!! BTW, I love the new logo on your blog. We really must get together soon.
What a fun class! Everything looks wonderful!
That sounds like loads of fun!!! I can't even pick a favorite cake, they all sound so good!
Wow! That is the best looking red velvet cake! I would love to go to a cake class...my scratch cakes always come out so dense.
I would love to do this and looked it up after you mentioned it last time but they don't have any in my area. That 5 flavor pound cake sounds like my fav too. That is super cool you do that together!!!!!!!
You guys are so cute!
I made an upside down pear tart last night in a cast iron skillet!
will post it soon. It was delish!
That pound cake sounds amazing! What fun it would be to take a class like this!
What a fun opportunity.
Holy cow. That is amazing!!! That looks so fun. I love that you and josh get to do it together. Your birthday cookies looked way yummy too.
Sounds like fun! Baking was my favourite class at culinary school.
You guys are too cute! Your cakes look great, I can't decide which one I would want to eat first. Maybe a small slice of each...?
They all look delicious to me, especially the upside down caramel apple cake.
I love taking classes like that one! I have yet to do a lot of baking classes, but if I had a viking school nearby, I would definitely give it a try!
This class looks like so much fun, I'm jealous!
Jealous. I've always wanted to go to a proper cooking class. I'm dying for a taste of the five flavour pound cake. And the caramel apple upside down cake sounds like a bit of heaven. Drool.
yum!! i love red velvet! yours looks delicious (as does everything else!!)
how fun!!! what a way to spend your time together... :)
So cool! Cute pics of you guys! Those cakes all sound (and look) AMAZING!
That must be really fun and interesting... :)
Wow, what amazing treats! Cooking classes are so much fun.
Your cake class is always fun! I can tell from the pictures that both of you have thoroughly enjoyed the class. :)
FUN FUN FUN...I'm really glad you enjoyed & shared such a great experience!
Great pictures. Everything looks tasty!
Ahh I am so jealous! All those cakes you made sound amazing - and I love that you do it together!
Great pics and that Red Velvet Cake looks amazing!
You are so Darned lucky. Wish I was there. SO so wish!! Crying, I am !!!
Ooohhh this looks like so much fun! I wish I was there!
If you think you don't like Swiss meringue buttercream, you should try my recipe for it. I use less butter and a little more sugar than all the other recipes I've seen. I don't like it too buttery either!
A cake making class sounds like loads of fun!
Wow, I can't believe you did all that in just 5 hours, and everything looks super.
That would be so much fun!
WOW this is amazing and you're so lucky!! Your cakes look wonderful and it sounds a very good class.
I saw this school on the news a week or two back and thought it would be fun to take a class or two. Now I'm convinced!
