The course will provide a brief introduction to cake decorating and will provide the skills necessary for learners to create their own celebration cakes at home. We will be making a box of chocolates cake for Christmas.
We will be making a cake in the shape of a box of chocolates and will learn how to cover a cake with sugar paste icing, colour sugar paste and create a striped effect, use a bead maker and crimpers and model edible Christmas sugar flowers. By the end of the course you will be able to cover a cake with icing, colour sugar paste icing, make edible beads, cut strips of icing to create stripes, model edible Christmas sugar flowers from sugar paste icing and make a lid to go on top of the cake.
