This course will begin by learning how to space messages and use the letter stamps. You will ice a cake drum board with sugarpaste. Moving on use moulds, cutters, painting on sugar, different types of icing, basic modelling, cupcake toppers, domes, piping, flood icing, patterned paste and so much more. You will take home not only a beautifully decorated cupcake platter but so much knowledge and newfound skills to transform your cake projects. The fruit cupcakes will last until Christmas, the sponge cupcakes have been designed so if you would like, you can take off the decorations (which will last until Christmas) - allowing you to re-create the platter easily for Christmas Day.
