This full day, all inclusive masterclass will see you perfecting deliciously realistic succulents as well as learning a whole array of transferable buttercream skills.
Create your own amazing buttercream succulent centrepiece
This all-inclusive 5 hr masterclass will show you everything you'll need from cutting, covering and finishing your cakes to succulent 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.
Sublime succulents and sensational sand!
Feeling refreshed, it's now time for the best part!
You'll create a whole range of novel and delicious succulents and cacti plus realistic edible sand!
You'll master how to use a flower nail and scissors like a pro and how to use simple colouring techniques to breathe like into your designs.
Afternoon cream tea
Well, it wouldn't be a Sugarcraft Contessa class without a little luxury so we'll be stopping to enjoy freshly baked scones with lashings of clotted cream, strawberry jam and pots of fresh tea and coffee.
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.
