Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: None, just an interest in cake decorating. The course is designed for beginners, or those with a little experience in cake decorating who want to brush up on their skills/knowledge. GENERAL AIM OF THE COURSE: To teach students the basic techniques and skills needed to produce hand crafted cake decorations and ornaments, using different forms of fondant/icing, in a friendly, informal environment. LEARNING OUTCOMES: By the end of the course, students will: - be able to colour different forms of fondant, paste, and icing; - be able to pipe icing decoration onto cakes; - be able to create cake decorations and ornaments from modelling/flower paste or royal icing; - have some knowledge of basic cake decorating equipment and suppliers. GENERAL APPROACH TO THE COURSE: Students will produce cake decorations with guidance from the tutor as required, and will be given demonstrations on different techniques throughout the course. MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENTS: The first week of the course will include demonstrations by the tutor and discussion on the course content as well as a small project. Students will need to supply ingredients and cake decorating equipment each week, as well as an apron, washing-up liquid/cloths and tea towels. A list of ingredients/equipment required for Week1 will be made available to enrolled students prior to the start date. Thereafter information for the following week will be given at the class. It should be noted this is not a baking class, anyone wishing to decorate a cake at the class will need to bring it with them. Please note that schools vary in what equipment they can provide to our classes and that clean up time is an intrinsic part of your class.
