Silhouette Cake

Hand-painted cakes are a standout! They’re also growing in popularity, especially silhouette cakes. These cakes aren’t just for weddings anymore; you see them turning up at everyday occasions. Our class will help you learn the tips and tricks behind creation of these breathtaking cakes.  Remember, sometimes less is more: Cakes do not need an abundance of decorations to make them exquisite. Just imagination and some mastery of skills.

Here’s what we cover:
  • Technique of covering a dummy and cake drum
  • Perfecting those neat perfect sharp edges on your cakes
  • Sourcing and creating templates
  • Working with food colouring for painting with
  • Secrets of making decorative balloons for your cake
  • Assemble of you cake decorations
  • Applying trim to your cake
  • Storage

When class is over, you get to take home a cake that reflects innocence and sweetness, something you’ll be proud to share with family and friends. Even after the cake is gone, you’ll still have a repertoire of new techniques to build on!  Class cost is £70 per person and is fully inclusive of all ingredients, tools and aprons. Refreshments and sandwiches are included. Online booking is available -- please see the list of classes available to the right. You may wish to bring a notebook and pen.

This class is suitable for all and no prior experience of covering cakes is required; however we always recommend to attend our Cake Camp in advance as it will give you a good foundation when covering cakes in the future.

Classes runs from 10:00 until approximately 15:30
