We are running this popular class as an evening course this year - time to kick off the festive season with a glass of champagne and a fun few hours learning the professional secrets of fondant covered cupcakes. 
We will be sharing our award winning recipes with you and guiding you through baking a perfect batch of fluffy cupcakes, which you will cover with our gorgeous buttercream before learning a whole variety of techniques for decorating them.  We will be making festive faces, stencilling with metallic lustres quilting and texturing.  All to finally produce a box of 12 cupcakes for you to amaze your family or work colleagues, along with the recipes and skills to take away and recreate your own for years to come.  We'll be on hand with Christmassy tunes, cupcakes to keep up your energy and a glass of fizz to prime your creativity and festive glow!  (And answering all and any cake-y questions you can come up with of course).

We will cover:

  • Baking perfect sponges​ - to our Great Taste Gold award winning recipes
  • Making light and fluffy buttercream
  • Preparing cupcakes for covering with fondant
  • Covering with fondant
  • Different techniques for fondant faces
  • Stencilling
  • Using edible metallic lustres
  • Texturing, embossing and quilting

There will obviously be a cupcake break (with coffee & tea), as well as a glass of champagne on us, and we'll provide notes on our tips and techniques to take away.

All equipment and ingredients will be provided.  All you need to bring is yourself and maybe a pen and paper to add to our notes.

No previous experience is required, and we think that even experienced bakers will pick up some new tips.

Places are limited to ensure we can devote time individually to mastering these techniques.
