About The Event
The Ultimate Flower Experience
This exciting full day masterclass is right for anyone who'd really like to
We'll start with 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.
Then we'll step it up to include a whole variety of flowers & techniques, suitable for beginners and improves alike.
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)
Then you'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 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. We'll start with sensational sunflowers then delicate peonies and big, blousey camellias.
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 ;-)
Enjoy a delicious lunch together
After all that 'hard work' it must be time for lunch
So, relax as you enjoy an afternoon tea style lunch of sandwiches, savoury bites, fresh strawberries & plenty of scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam for pud. Plus lashings of tea and coffee too, of course, all enjoyed from elegant vintage china.

The great reveal!
Finally, it's time to assemble your sensational summer bouquet, take lots of fabulous photos and feel generally pleased with yourself and your new found baking brilliance!
