What opportunities will this course give me?

Have you always loved the idea of creating your own baking masterpieces (rather than burning a hole in your pocket buying a beautiful but pricey celebration cake)? Then our Novelty Celebration Cakes course is for you.

This course gives you a fantastic opportunity to widen your skills with hands on learning among a group of like minded bakers. By the end of the course, you will be able to create your own, personalised show stoppers for those special occasions with family and friends. Not only will they look amazing, they will taste it too.

Learners will also be able to go on to enjoy more of our baking courses

What will I be learning?

This course will give you the skills and confidence to create cakes for all of those special family occasions. You will be able to carve your cakes in to beautiful shapes and mould sugar paste icing to cover them. You will be able to expertly create colours to maximise the look of your creations and mould individual, detailed figures to add those special finishing touches.

Through doing this, you will increase your knowledge of the tools and equipment used in this creative industry.

And when things don't go quite to plan, your tutor will be on hand to offer support and encouragement in how to put it right.

Why is this course for me?

Whether you want to make a cake for a specific occasion, are keen to impress family and friends or just want a new hobby this course is a wonderful way to get you started.

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 a particular skill or design that isn't covered in the core material, your tutor will try to incorporate it. For example, if you wish to create a style of cake for a specific special occasion, that wish could be accommodated. We do what we can to deliver the best, most fulfilling time at the college.

What do I need to sign up?

This course is suitable for anyone interested in shaping cakes and moulding novelties used for celebration cakes. Learners must be able to bake a cake.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Please bring notebook, pen, pointed scissors (i.e. nail cutting scissors, fabric cuttings scissors - anything with a point), and an apron to the first lesson.
Learners will need to supply their own equipment and ingredients as necessary on a weekly basis e.g sugarpaste. Cost will vary depending on topic undertaken.

Learners will be responsible for the purchase of materials relevant to the course.
