Cake decorating classes
For the novice cake decorator I would recommend the 'Introduction to Cake Decoration'. This course will guide you through the basic techniques and enable you to create lovely cupcakes or celebration cakes. Perfect preperation for decorating children's birthday cakes.
For those who have enjoyed the Introductory course extend your skills on the 'Further Skills - Royal Icing' course. This is a course introducing the art of royal icing. We will cover making and storing royal icing, piping, runouts and inscriptions.
Duration - all courses
2 hours a week for three weeks.
What will I learn on the Introductory Course?
You will be introduced to the different methods of icing celebration cakes, the equipment available and have a go at icing dummy cakes.
Cupcakes. Looking at the different techniques of decorating cupcakes. Decorate your own cupcakes to take away with you.
We will decorate a celebration cake (eg a birthday cake) along a theme and you will take it home (to show off and eat)!
What do I need?
Just bring yourself and an apron. All materials and equipment are provided.
For week 2 you will need some cupcakes to decorate and week 3 will require a cake to decorate. Full instructions and guidance will be given on the baking. It is important that you learn to bake a basic cake or all your newly learned decorating skills will be wasted.
Further skills - royal icing will require you to purchase some of your own equipment - please ask for an equipment list.
