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.
