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.
