A step by step introduction to cupcakes. The day will begin with you baking a batch of delicious vanilla cupcakes. Whilst the cakes are baking Annabelle will demonstrate how to make pure white vanilla frosting. Moving on you will then make your own traditional buttercream and a range of decorations (stars, hearts, butterflies). To complete the day you will learn how to fill a piping bag and then pipe a range of designs in both your buttercream and the frosting onto your cupcakes. You will be able to choose your preferred colour scheme.
