What opportunities will this course give me?

Have you always wanted to contribute to a school bake sale or surprise your work colleagues with some delicious home bakes but worried your contribution won't make the grade? Our Baking and Decorating Cupcakes course could be exactly what you are looking for.

This hands on course doesn't have any formal qualifications, but will give you the skills and confidence to create beautiful and delicious cupcakes. You will spend time with like minded bakers in a fun and creative environment under the tutelage of our experienced baking tutor.

Learners will be able to progress onto further cookery or cake decorating courses such as:
Novelty Celebration Cakes
Cake Artistry
Introduction to Sugarcraft

Please visit our website at for more details.

What will I be learning?

During the 5 weeks of this course, not only will you learn how to create a range of delicious tasting cupcakes, you will also learn the techniques to decorate them in fun and impressive ways. You may never need to buy cupcakes for that family gathering again.

By the end of the course, you will be baking your cupcakes at home and bringing them to class to concentrate on the finer details of your decoration.

Even if your creations don't quite go to plan, it really doesn't matter in the class. In this supportive and encouraging learning environment, your tutor will help you work out what went wrong and how to make sure it doesn't happen again in the future.

Why is this course for me?

If you want to develop or build your confidence with baking, this is the perfect course to choose. Whether you want to make cupcakes for a specific occasion like a baby shower or child's party, are keen to impress family and friends, or just want a new hobby, this course is a wonderful way to get you started. Many of our learners go on to attend one of our other baking courses to build on their new skills.

How will my learning be enhanced?

At Eastleigh College, we place huge importance on delivering a learning experience built around you, the learner. Therefore, if you wish to cover something that isn't covered in the course course material, your tutor will try to incorporate it. For example, if you wish to create a particular style or flavour of Cupcake that hasn't been included, that wish could be accommodated. We do what we can to deliver the best, most fulfilling time at the college possible.
