We held our legendary CUPCAKE CLASS at Lucia's Coffee Shop and Ice-Cream Parlour today, Saturday 30th March 2013.
Our classes cover the basics on covering your cupcakes with fondant and buttercream, along with instructions on how to craft flowers and models using coloured sugarpaste.
Today's class had an "Easter" theme, so our buttercream was chocolate and lime flavour. Delicious! We also included Cadbury mini-eggs to sprinkle and Easter paper banners!
Our classes are open to everyone from age 6 and over. Tickets are just £15 per person and include 4 cupcakes to decorate and keep. There is free car parking just minutes away and also free refreshments in the cafe downstairs.
Today, in our 2 hour class, we taught:
Effective buttercream techniques
Hatching Chick designs
Bunny Rabbit designs
