Do you love cupcakes?

Would you like to learn how to decorate beautiful cupcakes? Find it hard to get the icing just right or know what equipment to use? Then come along to one of our Cupcake Decorating Classes!  Perfect for the beginner and avid baker alike.

What do we do?

Our classes teach you how to make the perfect buttercream and make a variety of cupcake toppers and decorations using a range of equipment and techniques.  You will also learn how to use a piping bag and perfect the classic Mr Whippy swirl and the beautiful rose swirl, and learn how to do ‘flat top’ cupcakes too.  No experience is necessary, and lots of one-to-one help will be given, but a love of cupcakes helps!

Where & When?

The class, run from our home kitchen in Chartham, Canterbury, includes a gift box of 12 vanilla cupcakes for you to decorate and take home.  Classes start at 2pm and finish approx 4.30pm.  Classes sizes are intentionally kept small (minimum of 4, maximum of 6) to ensure you get the most out of the session.  Price is £35.00 per person for 2014 dates and payment confirms your place.

Class Dates

 *Please note that as from June, we will not be running regular scheduled classes – much as we have so enjoyed meeting lots of you on our classes over the last few years, we are getting busier and busier with an ever growing number of  bespoke and wedding orders  and consequently, diary space is increasingly a little challenging!

However, we will be running ad hoc classes from autumn this year, and dates will be published on this website and on our Facebook/Twitter feeds too.    Or, you may email us for news of upcoming dates as and when they are available, at melissa@fairydustbakery.co.uk .
