Sugarcraft is something I’ve always wanted to try out. Peggy Porschen’s amazing cakes have always inspired me to step into the world of cake decorating and recently I finally decided to something about it! A friend recommended a small cake supplies shop called Barracks Cake shop that hold evening classes for beginners and when I heard they were starting a new intake of ‘Introduction to Cake Decorating’ for a four week block, I jumped at the chance to get signed up.
The four week course has covered so many skills in cake decorating and I really feel like I’ve learned a lot. I would definitely recommend this class. It’s so much fun and you’ve got something to take away at the end of it to show off your new-found skills!
Here’s how my cake developed over the weeks…
Week 1 – Covering the cake with marzipan.
Week 1 – Covering the cake and board with icing.
Week 1 – Adding ribbon to the cake.
Week 2 – Practicing piping royal icing onto the boards (we spent this week experimenting and we didn’t add any to the cake).
Week 3 – Practicing making model people and bears (again I didn’t add my models to the cake).
Week 4 – Cut out shapes, glitter and paint and choose pieces to put on cake.
