The mini cake is adorable and an increasingly popular  type of cake amongst our students. They are also perfect for when you want to give someone a small personalised gift. Lindy loves decorating mini cakes!!


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 the course will cover:

You will  create stylish snowflakes from pastillage and learn the tricks of the trade when it comes to covering mini cakes. This mini cake workshop is a superb introductory course to using pastillage, covering mini cakes and trying out  simple piping techniques using royal icing.
