This Beginners Cake Decoration Foundation Class with Materials is designed for total beginners who have expressed an interest in cake decorating aged over 13 or considering enrolling on our PME Diploma. The objective of this course is to cover all basic techniques required to produce a basic cake. It is hoped that students will improve their ability through self-development and expert guidance. The additional confidence gained will allow students to further their interest and progress to enjoy future courses and to ultimately become a qualified professional cake decorator. This course is suitable for young mature adults from 13ys+ who have a keen interest to learn the art of cake decorating (please note an interview will be required before acceptance for ages between 13 and 16 years – email for guidance). This is not a children’s course but is one that young teenagers can attend if mature and have a strong interest in cake decorating. During each lesson our senior tutor Lynda will be demonstrating and explaining a wide variety of techniques.

Over the next five weeks you will be studying:

  • Preparation of a sponge cake covering
  • Sugarpaste covering and crimping
  • Royal icing skills
  • Various side design techniques
  • Basic modelling


An apron, antibacterial spray, kitchen roll, a note pad and pen.

  1. Wendy James

    Wow what a class. Ive been on numerous courses at loads of venues. But this class and the location beat them all. There were only 4 of us on the course which was great as Linda was able to give us all 1-2-1 attention. Her patience and knowledge exceed any tutors I know. I learnt sooooo much and have plans to enroll on the PME Diploma in April. Cant recommend this more highly and the venue is fantastic, clean professional and full of every piece of equipment you can imagine. Its even got a retail area where you can purchase goods at really competitive prices. Thanks Linda see you soon
