Cake Decorating Workshop (Barrel of Flowers)


About the Course

Spend a day learning how to become more creative with your cake decorating, making a realistic wooden barrel planter full of wonderful flowers.

The day will include using sugarpaste to cover your cake board to make it look like paving, creating realistic wooden planks to form a wooden barrel and making daisies and leaves to fill the barrel. You will also learn how to use edible dusts to create a realistic finish and texture.

This is the perfect workshop for all abilities. All tools, materials, 2 course lunch served with a glass of local wine are included. Nothing to bring, just yourself. By the end of your session you will take away a beautifully decorated dummy cake.
