It was great to have a couple of students whom had come all the way from the Netherlands to take part in our cake making class. They have been friends since Uni days but like so many of us don't get to see enough of each other now their lives are filled with work and children. So, every year they come to England to meet up for the weekend, stay in a hotel and plan some fun activities. Usually involving some form of cake baking or cupcake decorating. We were very pleased that on this occasion they chose to come to us. What a delicious excuse to get together with old friends!
During the class the students each made their own cake mixture and baked the cakes themselves. They then made a delicious buttercream icing whilst the cakes were cooling. After that they trimmed the cakes using a cake cutter. Then they filled and crumb coated them. Once they had done this they created a stunning design by piping on two tone buttercream rose swirls all over the cakes. They looked absolutely beautiful and the students were thrilled with what they achieved. Hopefully the ones that were flying back to the Netherlands survived the journey.
