We will bake a square madeira cake ready for you. The day will begin by making your own ganache. Moving on you will split, fill, crumb coat and ganache your cake. You will then ice your cake in sugarpaste and learn all about creating sharp edges and super crisp corners. Complete the decoration with a springtime wreath, grass, spring flowers and butterflies in a selection of designs. This is a brand new course designed to answer all those square cake conundrums.
