Wedding Cake 101

This class has been developed for DIY Brides who would like to make their own Wedding Cake
but it is also perfect for anyone who would like to learn the tricks of the trade
from a professional Cake Designer with many years of experience. 
With a little knowledge of the ‘structural engineering’ required, I can show you how to make a simple but chic tiered cake, which will look of professional quality.

We will cover an 8” cake and a 6" cake dummy* in fondant icing, achieving a perfectly smooth finish, before dowelling the bottom tier and stacking the top tier. I will show you a few simple but effective decorating tips including handpiped pearl designs and simple fondant rose clusters.

Techniques covered in this session:

  • Splitting, filling and crumb coating a cake with buttercream
  • Working with fondant icing
  • Covering a cake with fondant to achieve a smooth finish
  • Dowelling and stacking (including how to add a central column which could be filled with fresh flowers)
  • Basic royal icing piping techniques including handpiped pearl swags
  • Fondant rose decorations and clustering effects
  • Trimming your cake with ribbons to match your colour scheme and effective embellishments

This class is an excellent entry level for anyone looking to start a career in Wedding Cake design.
I will share all of my tricks and tips as well as the benefit of 5 years of professional experience.

Only £90.00 per person for a 3hr class
