We will bake a maderia cake for you. You can let us know in advance if you have a preference on what number (or other shape such as petal) you would like to cover. The main focus of the day is how to professionally split, fill and crumb coat a tricky shaped cake and then how to ice it to achieve a smooth professional finish. We will then add a finishing design using the geometric cutters.
If you have tried to ice a number (especially a 2, 5, 3 or 7) you will know how tricky it is to get the sugarpaste around the angles and deep curves! Annabelle will share all her top tips and secrets of success.
The day will also include a demonstration of how to line a number tin and how to fill the tin (without mess) along with lots of baking tips.
Annabelle established Confection Perfection (now re-branded as Annabelle Jane Cake School) in 1996 from her kitchen table; bought her first retail premises in 2000 and is now settled in a delightful setting in Bearsted, just outside Maidstone.

The course price includes everything you need to decorate your cake and a box to take it home. We will provide all the ingredients, materials, all sugarcraft tools, equipment and refreshments. Course attendees will also receive a full set of course notes and a discount sheet which gives exclusive discounts on the items used during the course purchased in the cake decorating supplies shop on the day of your course.
This was such a brilliant course. I didn't realise how difficult it was to ice a tricky shaped cake and I'm glad I've been shown how to get over certain areas of a cake that can prove difficult. What I expected and much more.
