Spinning Carousel Cake Class, Saturday 20th January 2018
Create a stunning moving carousel cake in this brand new intensive one day class
This Class is no longer open for booking
I'm delighted to launch my brand new class - the spinning carousel cake!
This is a highly detailed cake to make - involving many intermediate cake decorating skills to create a truly beautiful showstopping cake which can be adapted to be perfect for almost any occasion. Gently spinning around with the use of a concealed automated turntable, this beautiful cake will take your decorating and planning skills to the next level and leave your customers in awe ;)
The course will begin at 10am and finish at approximately 5.30pm.
What we will cover:
- The planning and preparation for a multi-tiered structured spinning cake
- Preparation of all elements and tips for the perfect assembly of intricate edible parts
- Creating swags, borders and embellishments using detailed moulds
- How to plan your cake for perfect positioning of embellishments for a pristine and symmetrical design
- Design skills and colour co-ordination
- logistics of painting and drying times with a multi-tiered project
- Covering (disguising!) a mechanical turntable and incorporating it into the design of your cake (this can be applied to all future moving cake projects also)
- Creating a movable top tier carousel
- Constructing a symmetrical design with precision
This class is an intensive day with A LOT of work involved - you wil be given free reign over many elements of the class, including your colour scheme and the desgn elements so that you go home with a truly unique cake for your portfolio.
You will also take home a fully functioning mechanical turntable which you will be able to re-purpose for other cake projects, plus ideas about how you can design future cakes around this piece of eqiupment.
As with all my classes, all the equipment, tools and edible materials you need will be provided for you to use during the class, plus a comprehensive handout with step by step pictures on how to recreate the cake once you are home.
We will be working on Dummy cakes in this class using fully edible coverings, however, time will be given to discuss how real cake can be incorporated in the design.
This class is available to pay in two instalments of £75 - the first instalment is due on booking and the second will be invoiced three weeks before the class, with payment completion due two weeks prior to the class taking place - please select the appropriate option when checking out.
Our classes take place in our local community hall in Paddock Wood, Kent. The town is served by direct trains from London Charing Cross, Ramsgate, Strood and Dover Priory. The hall is just a five minute walk from the station. Paddock Wood is a lovely town in West Kent , served by excellent public transport links, a mainline train station and with easy access to the A21, M20 and M25. It is within easy reach of nearby towns Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Maidstone. Our classes are held in a great location with extensive onsite free car parking and close to the town centre.
We will provide as much tea, coffee and soft drinks as you would like throughout the day, however, if you have a particular preference, you are of course welcome to bring your own refreshments. Please bring a packed lunch with you - we will take a 1/2 hour break for lunch and it's hungry work so bring something yummy!
