*An Intro to Wedding Cakes: Two Day Course*


Working with REAL CAKE & cake dummies make a beautiful, neat FOUR tier Wedding Cake.


This class has been developed for cake makers with basic sugarpaste/fondant experience:


  • to give you experience working with different brands of sugarpaste/fondant

  • to help you feel more confident covering real cake and cake dummies with sugarpaste/fondant

  • create crisp sharp corners with ganache and sugarpaste/fondant

  • give you the experience of stacking and securing tiers of cakes

  • to practice on trend decorating techniques.


By the end of the two days with Gill's support and step by step guidance you will have created a beautiful 4 Tier Wedding Cake.

This is the style of Wedding Cake you will make.  Sizes are 4, 6, 8 and 10 inch.  The 4, 8 and 10 inch are polystyrene cake dummies.  The 6 inch is real cake measuring 4 inch high when decorated.


Decorating Techniques you will learn include:


  • How to create edible ruffles,

  • paint flawless lustre/metallic effects on sugarpaste,

  • add sparkle effects and

  • secure silk flowers to real cake

Working with a pre-baked 6 inch cake we will use The Frost Form and a pouring ganache to create a perfect sharp corner crumbcoat.

Working with sugarpaste you will use Gill's panel technique to cover a 4 inch cake dummy and understand how this method creates simple sharp edges and straight sides with ease.


You will learn how to create a marble effect and use a traditional method to cover your 6 inch ganache real cake.

Gill will demo on the 10 inch cake dummy and you can start adding your ruffles!


You will learn how to stack and secure your 4 tier wedding cake and tips on how to travel to venues and set up.


You will work on 3 polystyrene cake dummies and 1 cake during this class and learn the benefits of why many cake designers incorporate a tier of false cake/cake dummy into a design.


Venue: Class is taking place at my studio at The Secret Warehouse, Syren St, Bootle, Liverpool, L20 8HN.


All equipment and resources supplied.
