About The Event

Create your own amazing autumnal buttercream centrepiece

This all-inclusive 5 hr masterclass will show you everything you'll need from cutting, covering and finishing your cakes to flower piping, colouring techniques and more.

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 cake torting, stacking and filling, showing you a few little secrets that make covering your cake a breeze later on.

The perfect recipe

I'll share with you how to make my own super simple yet fabulously effective Swiss meringue style buttercream recipe that will give you fabulous results in half the time.

The art crisp edges

Ever marvelled at those razor sharp edges on professional cakes and wondered how they do that?

Next you'll learn everything you need to know to start getting beautifully smooth and crisp finishes on your buttercream cakes.

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 so just get in touch to let us know how we can help when booking your class.

Beautiful blooms & fabulous foliage

Feeling refreshed, it's now time for the best part!

You'll create beautiful roses, drop flowers, buds & leaves using a range of techniques.

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.

The great reveal!

Finally, it's time to assemble your beautiful design,  bring everything together, 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.

(Shop opening times may vary so do check before you arrive)

Keeping you safe & sound

To ensure you enjoy a safe and enjoyable experience, guests now enjoy their own individual table setting so social distancing guidelines can be adhered to throughout the class.

A small 'sanitising station' is set available for use throughout the day and gloves are provided.

Masks/ visors may be worn, as desired.

Finally, to be sure all guests are fit & well to attend, short questionnaires are requested prior to the event.

Any questions?  Just get in touch and i'll be happy to help in any way.

I look forward to welcoming you and watching your buttercream skills blossom!
