Friday’s introduction to celebration cakes workshop was a great success -“I’ve had the best time ever”, “I’ve absolutely loved it”, “I’ve learnt so much” were just some of the comments from the students as they departed. For most students, covering and decorating a cake was a completely new experience, so they had a lot to learn.
As you can see below, they all did really well. The morning was spent getting to grips with colouring and kneading sugarpaste, covering boards, crumb coating cakes and of course the all important covering of the cakes themselves.
In the afternoon, I demonstrated a few decoration techniques, including edible ribbons and ropes, stencils and how to use different cutters to create on trend cut out flowers.
Stencils were a big hit with many of the students – as they easily turn a simple cake into an impressive masterpiece in a matter of seconds. Edible ribbons, made using the FMM multi ribbon cutter, were also popular as they cover a multitude of sins – fantastic when you are learning to decorate cakes!
I hope you’ll agree that they did really well.
