Cake Decorating is a fabulous mixture of cooking and art, a blend of relaxation and excitement, with a sprinkling of inspiration and reckless imagination thrown in for good measure.
Whether you are a complete beginner or enthusiastic novice with a little experience, this fun filled short course is the one for you. Delivered in a relaxed atmosphere, you will be guided through practical activities with the opportunity to take your creations home at the end of the course.
What will I learn?
Over a period of 8 weeks you will be taught about the differences and how to work with marzipan, sugar paste, flower paste, royal icing and pastillage. Using a variety of tools, the techniques you will explore include colouring sugar, crimping, and modelling, unwired flowers, lettering, embossing and piping.
How will I be assessed?
There is no formal assessment, underpinning knowledge and notes will be supplied in the form of handouts for you to keep.
On completion of this relaxed, yet packed course you will gain a good basic understanding of the craft and the confidence to further develop your skills if you get hooked. With practice, it will be certainly possible for you to produce cakes to a professional standard in the future.
There are no entry requirements for this course just enthusiasm, an interest in the craft and your sense of humour. All tools, equipment and materials will be supplied, just bring your own apron, it can get messy!
