Cake Decorating Classes


New Classes will be starting January 2014   They will take place at Cockerton Methodist Church Hall, Darlington. 

The course is suitable for beginners or someone who wants to improve their skills.   We will start at the very beginning learning how to torte, crumb coat and cover a cake with sugarpaste.  You will learn simple techniques and as your skills improve the techniques will become more advanced. We will cover a range of modern techniques and make varied styles of cakes, cupcakes and cookies to suit many occasions.

In previous lessons we have made, handbag cakes, cupcake bouquets, fairy castles, shoes, shirts, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, garden cakes. You will learn by watching a demonstration before embarking on the task yourself with as much or little support as is needed.  Hints and tips will be given throughout the lesson.

There will be some tools available for use but students will need to buy their own kit, though you will not need to invest in any expensive pieces of equipment and all projects will use mainly essential tools some of which can be adapted from everyday objects.

Lessons are £12.50 each payable 4 weekly in advance (£50 prior to the beginning of every 4 lessons).  Should you wish to pay weekly then the lessons are £15 per week.  You can pay by cash at the lesson or by card by calling into or ringing the shop during opening times .  Please note: the discounted price of £12.50 is only when paying 4 weekly in advance.
