Our parties are perfect for a group of friends to learn to bake and decorate beautiful cupcakes. We tailor the party to suit your occasion, be it a birthday party, hen party or get together.
Prices are dependent on the number of people and the activity included. As an example a group of 8 children, or 6 adults for 1.5 hours baking and decorating cupcakes would cost around £120. This includes a box of 4 cupcakes per person that they have decorated themselves. Contact us for a bespoke quotation for your occasion.
The Introductory Course
This course will guide you through basic techniques and enable you to create lovely cupcakes or celebration cakes. Perfect preparation for decorating children’s birthday cakes.
Skills you’ll learn include perfecting a sugar paste (fondant) cake, colouring and storing your icing, the perfect cupcake swirl and many time saving tricks and techniques (my secrets!).
All materials and equipment are provided. Just bring yourself, an apron and lots of enthusiasm!
Royal Icing Skills
The skills you learn will enable you to add beautiful piped details to your cakes and make pictures out of icing.
For this course you will need to bring some of your own equipment (please ask for a list).
Skills covered include piped inscriptions, borders and flooded run-outs. Although these are advanced skills you do not need to complete the Introductory course before you attend this course.
They help you to depict a favourite character or hobby. This one-off session will introduce you to modelling, making your own paste and give you the skills to create models yourself going forwards.
