The Beginners Cake Decorating Class – Back to Basics, is where the beginner cake decorating enthusiast starts. This class is open to all beginners, (we will except any mature child over the age of 13, however we’d like to meet the student beforehand). We do suggest that once you have attended this class you enrol on our preparation of sponge base or preparation of a fruit cake class. Back to basics is an excellent class for beginners wishing to learn the basic skills in cake decorating. We will be executing all the techniques today on a ‘faux cake’. This ensures all students start with the perfect base. You will be shown how to cover your base with professional sugarpaste, and we will explain how this differs from commercially purchased roll out icing. We will show you how to colour the paste and produce a smooth finish like the professionals. You will be shown how to texture the board. Pipe around the base, add ribbon and embellish the sides with a swag finish. To complete your cake, we will demonstrate how to use cutters and moulds then under guidance you will be let loose to decorate your cake and make it personal.
