For people who know the basics already. During the day we'll be covering how to tier cakes, draping, piping and other more advanced techniques we don't get to in the basics classes. This class will also include topics on demand - so if there is something you want to learn - send me an email and I'll let you know if we can cover it in the class. Depending on the final content of the class I may ask you to bring along some iced cakes so we can make the most of our time. Details to be finalised.

Likely topics we will cover:

  • Covering a cake board with icing
