About The Event
The Perfect Introduction
This relaxing 3 hr masterclass is perfect for those wishing to explore the art of buttercream flower piping.
You'll explore all the basics including essential equipment, piping and colouring techniques and you'll be given simple, tried and tested recipes, guaranteed to ensure great results for even the newest baker.
After a warm welcome and a nice cup of tea or coffee, we'll get straight to it as you learn to create a beautiful basket holder to display your cupcakes. With these skills, you'll be able to create wonderful displays at home with ease and use your new talents to WOW friends and family anytime.
Next, it's time to get creative with colour as we learn how just a handful of simple colouring techniques can make a wonderful difference to your flowers.
Delightful dahlias & pretty peonies
You'll enjoy mastering these timeless and wonderfully effective flowers as you pipe directly onto your cakes to achieve great results quickly and with minimal effort.
Then we'll look at the wonderful world of leaves and simple foliage and how it can breath life into your flowers (and hide a multitude of mishaps ;-)
A special treat
After all that 'hard work' it must be time for tea! So, sit back and relax as you enjoy a little something special with scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam and lashings of tea and coffee too and even a glass of bubbles!
(Special dietary requirements can happily be accommodated with prior notice)
Developing your skills with lisianthus bunches.
So, feeling refreshed it's time for the final part of the class and you'll have the chance to develop your skills further with some slightly more advanced piping and arrangement skills, all still suitable for beginners.
You'll learn how to use icing nails and flower scissors to create more professional, detailed arrangements and master a three flower lisianthus arrangement; a truly stunning addition to any bouquet.
The great reveal!
Finally, it's time to assemble your beautiful buttercream bouquet, take lots of fabulous photos and feel generally pleased with yourself and your new found baking brilliance!
The perfect day
All this, set amid a quaint little craft village you can explore before or after your class making this a wonderful day out to share with someone special or to come and enjoy while making new friends.
Any questions? Just get in touch and I'll be happy to help in any way.
I look forward to welcoming you and enjoying a wonderful experince together.
