Cupcake Decorating Course

What you'll learn

Learn how to create edible mini works of art with our cake baking & decorating courses in Sydney!

It’s “no experience necessary” for this hands-on class, as we unlock some of the secrets behind sculpting fondant and piping to create creatively themed cupcakes.

Learn simple, easy-to-do at home techniques. Along with a few laughs (and a cuppa or two), you’ll get loads of creative tips and skills for achieving a professional finish using low-cost tools and equipment found in most kitchens… (no need to break the bank buying all that fancy gear).

All ingredients, “naked” cakes, tools and a take-home cake box are included in the course fee.

Please note: we are not able to provide substitute ingredients for people with allergies.
