Cake Decorating: Fondant Course

View Classes

Learn how to cover a cake with smooth fondant with our cake baking & decorating courses in Sydney.

It’s “no experience necessary” for this creative class, as we unlock some of the secrets behind fondant and ganache – and how to get a smooth finish, ready for decorating.

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

And once the fondant’s smoothed over that 7" choc mud cake, we’ll help you lose the fear and get your creative on to sculpt and decorate your sweet-art like a bake-off contestant.

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

Course testimonials:

  • said: The course was great. Loved the small class size, and handy tips. Only improvements I would make, would be perhaps cutting it down to 4 hours, and also perhaps providing a small light lunch. Otherwise could not fault the program, and the instructor was wonderful. Thanks

  • said: The course was professionally delivered with a wealth of information and useful tips. It would have been better to have a longer lunch break. Amber was a good teacher and her notes and recommendations were very generous.

  • said: A great and relaxing day and an amazing teacher!!
