I am a keen cook but previously tended to shy away from anything 'fiddly.' Before now, my icing ability - or lack thereof - has consisted of a dollop of butter icing, roughly smoothed with a knife. I would then spend the next hour removing stray icing from the worktop, the floor, and my hair.
But I am a klutz no longer, thanks to this course - now the proud owner of both a piping bag AND an icing syringe, I am able to make my cakes look as beautiful as they taste. This course allowed us to learn and refine the basic techniques used in frosting and a small amount of sugarcraft, which we were given time and materials to refine. My favourite part was learning to do two-colour icing.
The small-group teaching instilled a great sense of camaraderie, and the warm and friendly teaching style meant that no matter how messy I became (very, incidentally), I did not feel silly. It wasn't just me who was glad I took this course - my family were delighted when I arrived home with a box of large, brightly-iced cakes, which needless to say, did not last long.
This course focussed very much on small-cake icing techniques. I have had several friends who have asked me if I could make their wedding cake, but currently I don't have the skills with royal icing or the faintest idea where to start. If Cupcake Passion were to run a class of this nature I'd be on it like a shot.
