Class runs from 10am to 5pm.
Swiss Meringue Buttercream is soft and buttery, it melts in your mouth and has an amazing texture. It is also perfect for piping flowers using special nozzles. The best bit is that you can bite right through the cake, no “crunchy” fondant flowers here! (Unless you want there to be a smattering, but we shall talk about that in class).
Although covering a cake with delicate florist paste flowers gives it a gorgeous look, we all know that this means using metal wires, florist tape and many other materials that we would rather avoid. However, we do like to decorate our cakes with flowers – enter Buttercream Flowers!
