Watercolour Tall Cake Class, Saturday 29th September 2018
Cover a tall cake with smooth, seamless sharp edges, with a watercolour and gold leaf finish in this beautiful new class
This Class is now fully booked
A NEW big cake class for you to extend your knowledge and skills for covering beautiful sharp edged cakes! If you've previously completed my ganache class and want to take the next step, or are just looking to increase your skills in being able to decorate more elaborate on-trend cakes, then this is the class for you!
This class includes:
Covering tall cakes
Seamless sharp edges
Faultless bottom edges
Watercolour paint technique
Creating and using edible gold paint
The course will begin at 10.30am and finish at approximately 3pm.
What we will cover:
- Covering a 6inch deep cake with my brand new SEAMLESS wrap technique: I'll teach you a brand new technique for covering taller cakes (we'll be working on a dummy in class, but the technique will work perfectly with ganached cakes), and how to achieve a totally seamless finish on your sharp edges for a pristine and perfect look.
- Hand painting a beautiful watercolour style onto your cake: and you can chose your own colour scheme
- Using new-to-the-market acrylic stamps to create personalised calligraphy lettering: learn how to use this brilliant new product and to hand paint your wording with a shimmering gold paint for the perfect cake lettering (we'll also discuss how to make edible gold paint and some of the current and new products that are wonderful for this type of finish)
- Create a quarter 'drip' on your cake - and then handpaint it with your gold paint
- Using edible Gold Leaf to create a shimmering effect on your cake.
- Painting a cake board with shimmering gold paint.
- Attaching stylish ribbons and non-edible floral embellishments to complete your cake
You will take home your perfect tall demonstration cake and of course a new found knowledge that you can use to develop your skills and love of cake decorating! You will be given a full step by step handout of the skills you learn in class along with details of all of the products and tools that we have used throughout the day.
All the equipment, tools and edible materials you need will be provided for you to use during the class.
Anyone completing a CakeyBake Class has the opportunity to join my private Facebook Group for all students, where you can ask questions, share ideas and benefit from the lovely chatter!
