A festive morning learning the skills to create professionally-polished, fondant covered cupcakes with style and ease. We will be guiding you through the materials to use and the secret tips that make life so much easier when you know how. This class will start with baking your own tray of perfect cupcakes and guide you through decorating them with a complete tool-kit of useful and varied techniques that you can re-use time and again for endless different effects. We will cover stencilling, using lustres, embossed designs and the creation of cute cupcake characters.  We will also show you methods to use when you need to get ahead – always useful for parties & super important at this busy time of year.

We are passionate about cake and look forward to sharing with you how easy it can be to create cakes that both look and taste amazing.  This class packs in so much information from baking to our Great Taste Gold Award winning standard, to enhancing flavours with simple tricks, decorating & even storing your beautiful creations.

We will be packing as much as we can into this short class to ensure that you go away with techniques that apply to all cakes large and small; and look forward to answering all of your baking and decorating questions along the way.      

There will obviously be a cupcake break (with coffee & tea), and we'll provide notes on our tips and techniques to take away.
All equipment and ingredients will be provided.  All you need to bring is yourself and maybe a pen and paper to add to our notes.

No experience is necessary for this course. 


Places are limited to ensure we can devote time individually to mastering these techniques.

A fun & festive morning creating the cake of the moment - the trendy drip cake.  Drip cakes are super-versatile and will become your go-to celebration cake for all manner of occasions – in this case, Christmas!!  Learn the tehcniques once with us here and we are quite sure you will be producing your own twists on the drip style for many, many occasions.   This course includes so many cakey fundamentals that are transferable to all of your cake decorating.  We will be trimming and layering cakes, crumb coating and buttercreaming – all of which would also put you in the perfect place to go on to cover a cake with professionally smooth fondant.  Then we will be showing you the basics of figure modelling to create cute toppers for cakes – again we will be sharing methods and tips which will be reusable time and again for all your future figures. Finally we will let you in on a couple of professional secrets to create that apparently effortless ‘drip’ effect, with our gorgeous Belgian chocolate ganache recipe.

We are passionate about cake and look forward to we sharing with you how easy it can be to create cakes that both look and taste amazing.  This class is decorating-centred, but we will happily chat baking and answer any questions you can bring to us.  We will be packing as much as we can into this short class to ensure that you go away with techniques that apply to all cakes large and small; as well as answering any of those frustrating decorating questions that have been preventing your cakes from stopping shows.
