Christmas Cake Class.

Run over two nights this Christmas cake class will show you how to prepare and marzipan your Christmas cake, skilfully cover your cake in sugar paste icing and how to finish it on an eye catching festive theme. There will be three designs to choose from so you can choose to create something that suits your style!

In addition to this in the weeks running up to the course you will be provided with a recipe to follow for the perfect 8” cake (feel free to use your own if preferred, variety is the spice of life!), prompts on when to bake and reminders to ‘feed’ your cake. There is also an opportunity to buy some of the essential tools as part of the classes and you can even purchase a ready made cake from Big Day Blooms and Cakes if you want to learn to decorate but do not have the time cook.
