Start the day by making your own ganache under the guidance of Annabelle. Learn the advantages and pitfalls of making and working with ganache. We will bake you 2 maderia cakes to split, fill and crumb coat with your ganache. Annabelle will share her top tips and demonstrate how to achieve professional results every time including stacking techniques.
Whilst the cakes firm use modelling paste to create a unicorn horn and ears.
Moving on you will then cover your cake with sugarpaste. Annabelle will teach you how to cover a double height cake without tearing, elephant skin and then how to achieve beautiful sharp edges.
Complete your cake in a unicorn design using a variety of techniques including rainbow piping.
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. Annabelle has extensive cake decorating experience and is highly creative and artistic. Annabelle is an accredited tutor for the PME Diplomas in Sugar craft and also designs and delivers a wide range of other highly successful cake baking and decorating classes. Annabelle has a huge vision for our Cake School and ensures that the strong reputation we have earned continues to grow lead by her consistently high standards.
Everything is included. You may like to bring an apron.
This is a jam packed course, lots of techniques to learn. Annabelle had lots of hints and tips for us to make things easier. What I expected and so much more. A great day and beautiful cake to take home.

Huge thank you to Annabelle Jane for the flowers unicorn course yesterday. Personal learning was huge including using ganache, straight edges, rearranging the layers of a cake to get the best finish and piping and we all got to take home a really pretty unicorn! Great course and supportive tutor in a friendly atmosphere.
