Cake Decorating is a fabulous mixture of cooking and art, a blend of relaxation and excitement, with a sprinkling of inspiration and reckless imagination thrown in for good measure.

Whether you are a complete beginner or enthusiastic novice with a little experience, this fun filled short course is the one for you.  Delivered in a relaxed atmosphere, you will be guided through practical activities with the opportunity to take your creations home at the end of the course.

Over a period of 8 weeks you will be taught about the differences and how to work with marzipan, sugar paste, flower paste, royal icing and pastillage. Using a variety of tools, the techniques you will explore include colouring sugar, crimping, and modelling, unwired flowers, lettering, embossing and piping.

There is no formal assessment, underpinning knowledge and notes will be supplied in the form of handouts for you to keep.
