“A wonderful bunch of students” was the phrase that Jane, Sally and I felt best described our students on last Friday’s wonky cake course. I was feeling shattered after my full on week working on my DVDs, but these students were a joy to teach. So thank you everyone who attended. Many of you thought that it would have been good to make the workshop a two day course – I agree it would have been a lot of fun and it is something we are considering for the autumn.
The students, as often, came from far and wide: – Nigeria, Ireland, Durham, Kent etc. They were enthusiastic, some a little nervous but all eager to learn. As you can see from the pictures they mastered the art of carving very well and managed to cover the cakes more or less without any folds!
A couple of students had made their ‘task’ harder by bringing cakes that were not Madeiras- Genoese sponge is a little soft for wonkies and fruit cake really needs to be frozen to carve it successfully – but they coped very well.
Hope they inspire you to have a go too!
NB students – We’d love to see your finished cakes, so please do leave a comment and then email me a photo and we’ll add it to your comment – Thanks
