Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

What opportunities will this course give me?

Learners may wish to attend other cake decorating courses such as: Cake Artistry (All levels); Novelty Celebration Cakes, and Make Simple Flowers for Cake Decoration. Learners may also wish to attend cake baking courses, such as our Beginners course. Please browse the website for full details.

What will I be learning?

This course will build on the skills taught in our Introduction to Sugarcraft and Christmas Cake Decorating courses. Learners will have a refresher on how to professionally decorate a cake using sugarpaste and learn how to cover a cake in royal icing. Learners will also be taught a range of techniques such as piping, frilling, modelling and complex flowers. The course does has some flexibility, therefore, the tutor is happy to consider individual requests from learners.

Hygiene, and health and safety will also be taught.

Why is this course for me?

This is a practical ''hands on'' course taught under the guidance of the tutor.

What do I need to sign up?

There are no formal entry requirements in respect of this course; however, a level of knowledge and understanding will be expected. Ideally learners will have attended either the Introduction to Sugarcraft or Christmas Sugarcraft courses.

Is there anything else I need to know?
