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 either a unicorn horn and ears or glitter antlers, red nose and ears for Rudolf.
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 either a unicorn design using a variety of techniques including painting on sugar and rainbow piping or as Rudolf with chocolate 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.

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

5*+++ Tip top! Such a lovely course – some core skills for intermediate level but balanced with making something really pretty and was lots of fun with a lovely fun crowd. Not pressured – lovely pace. Very friendly atmosphere to learn new skills. Really lovely day.
