Welcome to the School of Cake.
Through monthly meet-ups, workshops and after-school classes for Mini Cakers we hope to spread our love of baking and cake decorating, giving you the skills to create your own cakey masterpieces at home.
To start we will be running monthly classes and workshops, each following a set monthly theme. For October our theme is Halloween, for November it’s Autumn and for December it is Christmas.
Monthly Modelling Meet-up
Every month we will get together to make a model or set of models using sugarpaste or modelling paste. The model will be announced before hand so you know what you’re making, and all materials and equipment will be provided. As much as we can, we will try to use tools you are likely to already have at home. All you will need to bring is a box to take your creation home in. Each session will last 1 and a half to 2 hours, and I’ll be happy to answer any of your modelling questions on the night.
Cupcake Decorating Workshops
During this 2 hour session we will make toppers and decorations using sugarpaste and modelling paste to decorate a box of 6 cupcakes. We will also show you how to pipe buttercream to create different effects onto the top of your cupcakes. Again all materials and equipment will be provided, you may want to bring an apron to cover your clothes. At the workshop you will receive recipes to make cupcakes, buttercream and a top tips sheet to help you get the best out of your bakes at home.
Mini Cakers Classes
Suitable for children aged 4 to 12, our Mini Cakers will get to try a mix of baking and decorating skills. All materials and equipment will be provided, please bring an apron along as sessions can get messy. All Cakers will get to take home whatever they have made, if a box is needed to bring items home we will let you know in advance. A recipe and how to sheet will also be provided.
Bonus Facebook Group
As an added bonus, for everyone who attends a meet-up, workshop or class, you will be able to join our School of Cake Facebook group, giving you the first look at new dates, access to all recipes, how to guides and worksheets handed out, exclusive videos, content and special offers. We will also be on hand to answer any Cake questions you have.
All classes will be held at Waunarlwydd Rugby Club, Roseland Road, Swansea SA5 4ST. Directions will be provided, parking available on site.
