What you will do
2 hour class
Try your hand at the classic swirl, rose swirl, two tier and iced gem decorating techniques.
No previous cupcaking/decorating/piping skills are needed. Just turn up and enjoy...and you get to take away 8 of your beautiful creations to show off at home at the end.
You spend no time faffing about with cake mixture or oven timings as Xanthe has prepared this all earlier in the day and you can let your artistic flare run wild. All it takes to become a pro is:
- filling a piping bag properly (yeah, there is a wrong way to do it)
- perfecting the icing recipe
- the classic swirl, the rose swirl, the two tier and the iced gem techniques
- sprinkles and decorations are all fun and games, but sometimes less is more!
Everything is provided by the Cookie Girl including aprons, tea, coffee, cupcakes and so all you need to bring is yourself and some cupcake enthusiasm.
Cupcakes aside, you're guaranteed to have a ball - bring those cake-loving friends of yours or meet fellow cupcake enthusiasts. Even bring a date, for one of the best ways to break the ice(ing).. (sorry).
By the way: You can also buy a signed copy of Xanthe's best-selling book "Eat Me" for £15
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.
