This Christmas cake class is a great introduction to cake decorating and will teach you how to make this elegant Christmas cake. It is ideal for beginners or intermediate cake decorators who would like to learn new decorating techniques.

At the end of the class, you’ll have a stunning cake to take home to share with friends and family, which you will be able to personalise with your own message, and choice of festive stencil.

All equipment is provided (including a sponge cake for you to decorate) and we will be happy to help with any questions at all you may have about cake decorating or baking during the class.


During this class you will learn how to:

  • Split, level, fill, and crumbcoat a sponge cake in chocolate ganache

  • Cover and decorate a cake drum for a professional effect

  • Cover your cake with sugarpaste, getting a smooth finish

  • Use royal icing stencilling (with a choice of festive stencils) for a stunning but simple decorative effect

  • Use edible paints to paint your stencil design

  • Pipe swirls to give your cake height 

  • Create letters to spell out a message of your choice
