For the first time in Japan, JSA has developed this instructor training course on decoration cakes made with bean paste. This is a new genre instructor training course that combines Japanese and Western styles with the use of bean cream and bean paste that are carefully selected to make sure it tastes delicious.
You can learn how to squeeze three-dimensional flowers by using JSA original nozzles.

Details of the course

  1. This course is developed by an experienced lecturer from Japan headquarters, which is suitable from beginners.                                                                                                      Even beginners will learn firmly from the basics, and in 12 hours create 5bean paste flower cakes and 3bean paste cakes. This is a “6 lessons completed” course where you can learn all the techniques necessary for making 10 more different flowers and leaf squeezing, and more than 30 kinds of bean flower and bean paste cake.  A curriculum developed by JSA, which was created by an instructor who has more than 18 years of experience in cooking classes and craft lessons, is a feature that can guide beginners to the instructor level in the shortest distance.
  2. A new genre for the first landing in Japan.                                                                   Everyone is eligible to be a leader in this industry. With the instructor with more than 20 years of cake making experience and unique squeezing technology, you can learn delicious and elegant Bean paste flower and craft that you have never seen before in Japan. We hope that you will learn from the basics of confectionery firmly and systematically and play an active role with confidence after graduation.
  3. Use the original paste cream and tools                                                                                  The cream for bean paste used in this course is an original combination of creams with a focus on taste and ease of piping. Also, to make it easier to start the course, we will use the dough of bean paste craft that is commercially available and easily to buy. We will use handmade UKISHIMA cakes for bean paste flower. As for tools, we will use JSA’s original nozzle to squeeze three-dimensional flowers that have never been seen in Japan.
  4. Detailed color textbook                                                                                                                This is a very detailed textbook that not only what you have learned, but also knowledge and arrangements of plus+ when you take a review or start a course at home.                    The textbook, which has been revised many times over half a year with the motto “If you have something don’t understand, you can review it by looking at the textbook” is also called “Tutor textbook” or “Princess textbook” by graduates. The content is so detailed that you can concentrate on teacher’s demo and hands-on without taking notes during the course. There is also an instructor’s manual for certified instructors to conduct certificate course.
  5. Supports from JSA after graduation                                                                                       The real start after graduation. JSA’s lecturers are based on the idea of “we are friends, not competitors”.  Based on the association policy of “Let’s spread together~”, there are currently more than 12,000 instructors active in Japan and overseas, and it is an environment where we can work together while supporting each other. Since we provide opportunities for SNS and instructors to gather, it is very encouraging to have connections with colleagues who have the same thoughts and goals.                                    And new technologies will be shared with certified instructors through skills improvement courses. In addition, since the representative director is also the owner of the lesson salon, which attends 5,000 people a year, we also inform the certified instructors about the salon management know-how through seminars.
