Sorry, this class has already begun!

This is a brand new wedding cake baking and decorating class starting in May 2019. Over four intensive days, you will be amazed at what you can do! This class covers everything from baking a wedding cake, with all the details that go into it, to decorating it with stunning sugar flowers, royal icing stencilling  and marbled effect sugarpaste (fondant). We have crammed this cake course full of techniques that will allow to recreate a wedding cake, from scratch, at home. Learn all the secrets of keeping wedding cakes smooth and straight, and delicious, at the same time!

Class starts at 10am and we aim to finish by 5pm everyday.

The sugar flowers in this class have been especially chosen to give your cake a sleek and modern look. Lets be honest, some sugar flowers can look SUPER dated. Not here! We have chosen a very modern colour scheme. We have also chosen to make succulents (bang on trend), a delicate English Rose (special) and eucalyptus leaves - a very Pinterest worthy collection of sugar flowers, much in demand by all the brides and grooms planning their special days on Pinterest!

This is a perfect class for you if you have a bit of experience baking cakes making sugarflowers and would like to take your skills to the next level.
