What you will do
2.5 hour class
In this 2 1/2 hour workshop you’ll become more confident with your piping skills, using a Royal Icing.
Royal Icing has been around for decades, had its heyday in the 80s. Think big wedding cakes with pillars between the tiers, piped scrolls and extension work. All very frilly and flouncy. Whilst designs and fashions have definitely moved on, it remains a skill well worth mastering, featuring in cake trends to this day. It’s cheap, uses very little specialist equipment, and with a few skills you can decorate a modern beautiful cake very quickly. What’s not to love!
With a maximum of 6 in the class you’ll get plenty of 1 to 1 attention.
This class covers :
Making Royal Icing
Filling piping bags
Choosing the right equipment and how to look after it
Piping perfect dots
Dropped lines: straight and fancy patterns
Piping straight lines with no bobbles on the end
Writing with icing
Basic piped flowers
At the end of the class you’ll take home the equipment used so you’re ready to carry on practising at home.
This class is suitable for total beginners and those with piping experience wanting to brush up on their skills.

About your host, Little Whisk
Erica started Little Whisk in 2016 and began by selling wedding and celebration cakes. The sugarcraft club she belongs was running low on funds so in 2014 she volunteered to run some workshops and discovered a love of teaching. After receiving great feedback she completed the British Sugarcraft Guild’s demonstrator training in 2016 and is now an Accredited Demonstrator and teaches at branches around the South East.
Now teaching more than selling cakes, Erica loves to see her students grow in confidence and ability. Nothing makes her happier than seeing someone create something they thought they couldn’t do, or taking her ideas and turning them into something new.
Erica’s background is in craft, having spent ALL her childhood pocket money on glitter pens, sequins, fabric, stationery and fimo. She currently dabbles in stained glass, papercraft, sewing, cross stitch, dance and aerial when not cake-ing and is trying to learn to draw. She set up her classes in Welling after being frustrated at the lack of crafty options held even vaguely locally.
Her teaching style is organised but informal and relaxed, and she is happy to share all her knowledge so you can get the most out of your time in class.
Please bring an apron if you want to keep your clothes pristine, and a magazine sized bag to take your equipment home in. Refreshments and biscuits are provided free.
