Inspired by the changing season, cupcakes took centre stage today at our Autumn inspired Cupcake workshop. The timing was perfect because Lindy’s cupcake book ‘Bake me I’m yours…Cupcake Celebration’ was published just a few weeks ago. We are huge fans of cupcakes at Lindy’s Cakes and the workshop team do love a cupcake class! Lindy has spent much of the last 12 months researching and developing her unique style of cupcakes. Lindy loves to teach and it’s an area of her businees that she devotes a lot of time and energy to. So it is just wonderful for her to be able to share cupcake creations with her students…
On this course you will learn how to prepare your cupcake ready for covering. But first Lindy will give you tips, and recipes, to bake the perfect ‘cupcake’ cake. She believes strongly that the cake underneath the fabulous decoration must be… as fabulous! She then moves on to the covering of the cupcakes with sugarpaste and buttercream, Lindy will help you achieve a professional finish. You will then begin the decoration…the fun part! With a focus on flowers, berries, maple leaves and all things autumn, Lindy demonstrated a lot of techniques for our students to try. The fabulous thing about a ‘cupcake’ workshop is that you get to decorate a lot of cakes and can have a go at various decorative styles. Today Lindy worked with moulds, veiners and cutters to create stunning flowers and leaves plus royal icing to pipe delicate brushwork embroidery.
Our lovely students created a wonderful collection of cupcakes today. They made the most of the oppurtunity to experiment with colour and decorative techniques. One student commented very early on in the day ‘I’m learning so much!’ You really do gain a lot from a workshop environment with a leading sugarcraft expert at your side! We had a lot of fun and it was great to see new ‘cake’ friendships developing during the day. Ultimately thats what our workshops are all about: fun, friendship and learning!
And at the end of it all you get to nibble on some very glamourous little cakes!
