Flora and Fauna Workshop

In this workshop, you will learn how to decorate twelve, freshly baked cupcakes using your own imagination and creative energy; with a little help from some key professional tools, materials and equipment.  You will make a variety of edible, inspired, flora and fauna themed decorations, which can be applied to so many designs for cakes and biscuits; large and small.

Using a variety of tools, including some elements of edible Cake Lace, by Claire Bowman, you will create your own decorations to suit your theme.  Using vanilla buttercream, and learning how to colour sugarpaste, you will also learn how to 'treat', and emboss professional quality sugarpaste into your own designs, and apply these to your cupcakes.  All edible and non-edible materials and tools, including twelve cupcakes, are provided for your use on the day; at the end of which, you will leave with twelve beautifully decorated cupcakes which you have designed and decorated yourself.  Refreshments are provided throughout the workshop, and you do not need any previous experience; the only requirement is that you use your imagination to design your own cakes.  Here are a few examples of what you can create from this workshop:
