About The Event

A splash of springtime!

This relaxed & 3 hr masterclass is perfect for those wishing make an impact with a sensational selection of spring flowers : Tulips, pansies and daffodils.

This class is suitable for beginners & those wishing to extend their skills.

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.

Bubbles on arrival

Enjoy creating amazing blooms in your very first class with a glass of bubbles when you arrive to welcome you.

(Non alcoholic options also available)

The Bouquet

Then you'll get straight to it as you learn to create a beautiful hanging 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 skills to wow friends and family anytime.

Your first flowers

Next, it's onto the piping practice mats as you learn to master a variety of simple yet wonderfully effective petal strokes and techniques before piping your first flowers directly onto your cakes; beautifully simple tulips.

Fabulous foliage

Then we'll look at the wonderful world of leaves and simple foliage and how it can breath life into your flowers (& 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, of course, all enjoyed from vintage china.

(Special dietary requirements can happily be accommodated with prior notice)

Developing your skills

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.

You'll learn how to use icing nails and flower scissors to create more professional, detailed arrangements and master the timeless individual petal rose, plus two colouring techniques that will elevate your flowers to another level.

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 your class with free parking too, 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.

Chat soon.
