Why you should come to this class.
To mark 60 years of The Queen's reign we will be celebrating her Diamond Jubilee with a cupcake class!
The weekend of June 2nd - 5th will be a very special one this year as we mark the anniversary of our Queen's coronation, when she came to the throne in 2nd June 1953. Queen Elizabeth is the 2nd longest serving Monarch, only Queen Victoria reigned longer at 63 years!
Many people around the country will be celebrating her Jubilee with parties and events. So we thought we could help you create a beautiful set of Jubilee cupcakes for your party, while teaching you some valuable skills along the way!
This class will teach you how to work with sugarpaste and modelling paste (tylo powder and sugarpaste) as well as piping wonderful buttercream swirls.
We will also introduce you to working with printed edible toppers and how best to place them into your cupcake so that they don't flop! There will also be an introduction on how to bake the perfect cupcake. You will be given the recipe for the cupcakes, buttercream and flower paste, together with all the information needed to recreate the Jubilee cupcakes for your own party.
We provide tea and coffee throughout the class, and teach you in a professional, fun and relaxed atmosphere.
This class is for beginners.
This is a 2 hour class in the evening so if you are a mum with young children, leave dad at home and get an evening off! You will have time to decorate the cupcakes and ask questions without worrying about taking notes. We have limited the class to a maximum of 6 students, which allows us to give you more personalised teaching and attention.
