About The Event
Create your own spectacular buttercream centrepiece
This all-inclusive 5 hr masterclass will show you everything you'll need to create your own version of this truly unique design, complete with edible climbers, pretty flowers and a whole array of fantastic foliage.
Perfect for all levels
Whether you're new to baking or just need to improve your skills, this class has something for everyone to learn in a relaxed, warm and friendly environment.
Mastering the basics
We'll begin with the skills of preparing your presentation box then filling, layering and crumb coating your delicious chocolate cake.
As your cake chills, it's time to dive straight onto wonderful world of buttercream flowers and foliage as you explore a whole array of different styles including eucalyptus leaves, big and beautiful camellias and pretty peonies plus various other leaves, buds and flowers and succulents.
You'll discover how to use a flower nail and icing scissors like a pro and how to use simple colouring techniques to breathe like into your designs.
A delicious picnic style lunch
After all that 'hard work,' you'll enjoy your own picnic hamper, filled with fresh baguette, ham, cheeses and a selection of tasty treats. Plenty of tea + coffee of course and even a glass of bubbles, all included in your ticket price.
Special dietary requirements are happily catered for with advance notice so just get in touch when booking your class.
Feeling refreshed, it's now time for the best part!
You'll discover your inner artist as we create incredible 3D, fully edible climbing plants that will truly take your designs to the next level! These are such fun to make and you'll be amazed by the effect they will have on your cake designs!
A real treat
If you've been to a class before, you'll know that a Contessa class is about sooo much more than just the cake! It's a time to relax and enjoy a day away from it all so we always make time for a delicious cream tea of freshly baked scones, clotted cream and lashings of tea and coffee, all served in beautiful vintage china. A real treat to sit back, unwind and enjoy.
The great reveal!
Finally, it's time to assemble your beautiful design, bring everything together, take lots of fabulous photos and feel generally impressed with yourself and your newfound buttercream brilliance.
You'll be utterly amazed by what you can create in just a few hours!
So... What are you waiting for...?
Let's get you booked in and I look forward to welcoming you and watching your buttercream skills blossom!
