Sorry, this class has already begun!

Come along to our brand new 1 day buttercream and chocolate ganache drip style cake.

This class is PERFECT FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS! And you will achieve all this in just ONE day! Wow!

Class runs from 10am to 5pm.

 We will pre-bake the cakes for you so you can get to the super fun decorating part. You will love this cake decorating technique being instructed by the very talented Laura Grix. What a great way to spend a day! Plus, the best part is, you will bring home a fully decorated  super yummy bright and colourful cake that YOU will have made.

 In this one day class, you will learn:

- How to layer vanilla cakes

This technique is very popular on social media and can be used to make larger, tiered cakes. If you are interested in exploring it more fully, we offer a three day Hot Off The Press Caking Class where you can learn how to bake as well decorate a tiered version of this cake.

You will go home with:
