Jessie is a really keen baker, so for her cake making birthday party she wanted to bake her own cake from scratch! As you can see she did a fantastic job doing every step herself (with a little help from her friends) weighing, creaming, mixing & beating. She basically had her own private baking class. I then taught her how to create a stunning pastel watercolour effect on the finished cake. Whilst the cake was baking I had the opportunity to teach her and her friends and cousins how to pipe gorgeous ruffles and swirls in a kids cake class. They did a fantastic job with their cupcake decorating. Especially considering some of them were only 6yrs old! They loved the taste of the buttercream icing and cream cheese frosting in a variety of gorgeous colours. They were super excited by the huge range of sprinkles we have. The unicorn sprinkles were a big hit! The girls left the class with a good bag of their own cupcake creation to take home and share with their families. They behaved beautifully and Jessie had the best time having learnt cake decorating as well as having had her own private baking class. And she had the wonderful sense of achievement of having made her own birthday cake to take home.
Mariam had the great idea to have a cake making class for her birthday. She is a big fan of The Great British Bake Off and really wanted to have her very own cake class. She got together seven of her dearest friends and together they baked up a storm in our lovely HQ kitchen at their very own cake baking class in London. They really appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and the fact that it felt like they were 'home from home'. They did a great job making the cupcakes from scratch using free range eggs and butter to ensure the tastiest, most melt in the mouth cupcakes imaginable. They then showed off their competitive piping skills which I must say were generally very impressive and led to some beautifully decorated cakes. They were thrilled with the end results from their cake class and excited to be taking their freshly baked cakes home to share with their families. As a lot of them are getting married soon there was a lot of talk about hen parties. It was even discussed that they could do one of our cake making hen days. Watch this space as they may all be back to improve their skills before too long!
