The Sugar Craft School

Are you a beginner or an ambitious baker looking to learn about decorating your own creative cakes?

Book a workshop with the team at The Cake Shop and we will help you create a range of different designs and set you on your way to creating amazing sugar craft designs for you and your family to enjoy.

You won’t need to worry about bringing your own sponge cakes either as the cost of your session will include the loan of equipment, ingredients used and a free buffet lunch.

As a bonus an additional 10% discount is available on any purchases made during the session.

We also provide gluten free sponge for anybody who needs it so you don’t feel left out but please  be aware there will be other cakes being carved at the same time.

If you’re not sure what to expect from our highly trained team and the British Sugar Craft Guild accredited guest teacher Christine Kerrigan then see a list of our previous workshops below:

 

  • Various authentic looking sugar flowers

  • Royal Icing techniques including brush embroidery and piping

  • 2 tier sugar pasting, crimping and stacking

  • Easter themed modelling techniques

  • Teddy bears picnic novelty modelling techniques

"Very friendly and helpful. The classes are good fun and well thought out. It’s surprising what you can produce with their help!"
Jen Saunders
