5 Week Course 


During this course you will learn a variety of skills which you can transfer to other cakes you may like to create.  Skills that may be covered:-

  • Modelling
  • Preparing, filling and coating cakes
  • Making flowers
  • Royal Icing/piping
  • Making decorations from sugar
  • 2D work
  • Using a variety of different pastes
  • And more….

Each set of 5 weeks will always include completing a finished sponge cake; usually this will be on the final week.  The cake is often themed to the time of year or a specific subject according to the skills we are using.  For more information regarding the actual cake or skills in any particular course please contact us as they are often different on the various days and times.


Please bring along an apron and a container to take home what you make each week.  This needs to be big enough to hold a small cake board approximately 8” square.

NB: the cost of your course DOES NOT include the final sponge cake, icing and cake board.  You can provide this yourself or alternatively order them from us but this will incur a further charge.

If you would like any further information or advice on this or any of our courses please Contact Us.
