Class mini cakes to inspire!

This class is designed for all levels of sugarcrafter, however to get the most from this class we recommend that you are comfortable with covering a cake in sugarpaste but this is not essential.

What will the course cover:

You will begin with covering the mini cake ready for decoration. This mini cake workshop is a superb course to experiment with decorating styles incorporating  embossed paste and sugar shaper techniques.

What you can expect:

Lindy will demonstrate various decorative styles to create exquisite ornate mini cakes. You will work mainly with embossers, cutters and the sugar shaper tool. You will have time to experiment with many patterns and colours, including autumnal colours. Expert tuition by Lindy is the main focus of the day, you will have Lindy and her team supporting you every step of the way. Our workshops are fun, informative and supportive. We pride ourselves on our ability to make our students feel at ease and encouraged, giving assistance where needed and space when not. You will end the day having created exquisite mini cakes using various decorating techniques, you will have gained valuable sugarcraft knowledge, techniques and tips for use in all aspects of your sugarcraft. We want you to have fun, learn a lot and become a cake friend of Lindy’s Cakes Ltd.
