Today, no celebration is complete without everyone in attendance Instagramming the same impossibly intricate, artisanal cake. Think flowers with individual petals crafted out of icing, whole galaxies sprawled across a triple-tier cake, or the most wow-worthy trend: geode cakes that resemble cut open crystals.

But no matter how different the cakes are in design, they all have two things in common: They’re so beautiful it almost hurts to take a bite, and for anyone who’s not a baking prodigy, they seem utterly impossible to even attempt. The good news is that cake wizardry can be learnt – as long as you have the right teachers.
“Online videos will never tell you what is wrong with the work and cannot give proper advice,” says Serena Tang from Nanatang, a bakery-cum-studio that engages international and local master bakers to share their skills through hands-on baking classes. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an expert, there’s something for everyone, from Serena’s famous Korean buttercream flowers to award-winning Carla Puig’s chocolate face sculptures.
