This week I woke up at a silly time for a Sunday (7.30) and headed across London for a cupcake decorating class. The premise was that I like cakes and being creative so it would be nice to be able to make some posh cakes for friends and family.
I arrived with a friend and was instantly surprised by how many people there were in the class, I’m thinking about 40-45.
We put on our plastic bag type pinnies (yuck) and the instructions were quick. Luckily the cakes were already baked, so it was down to us to make these 6 little cakes look pretty.
We made a decorative cupcake in icing, a mini ice cream, a bow, I also made a flower and a heart in our “creative time”.
Here’s the little cupcake I made.
My friend was much better than me and even made a cute little toadstool and a mouse face.
Then we learned how to pipe icing on top of cakes into swirly patterns and how to put fondant icing on top of cakes, although mine went around the sides (and didn’t look very professional).
Oh well it was a fun two hours and I feel more confident to get the piping bag out more often. Mother’s day is just around the corner so Ma might get a shock this year.
To summarise the class though I just think there were too many people and therefore not quite enough attention to get your moneys worth if you are paying full price. Luckily I had a voucher.
After the class I went to the London Art Fair, there was an interesting range of things to look at although my boyfriend didn’t consider the tyre anything special to look at.
Here’s some of the top things I liked.
