Complete Cupcake Classes with Baking & Decorating this Saturday

Cupcake class baking and decorating

Exciting news! This Saturday sees the first of our brand new Complete Cupcakes: Baking and Decorating cupcake classes at our kitchen in Wandsworth. It’s the first class we’ve done which includes all aspects of making perfect cupcakes; not only will you get to decorate 12 beautiful cupcakes (plus a few spares, of course), you’ll also get full hands-on training in how to make amazing buttercream icing and bake perfect cupcakes every time.

We’ll walk you through every step including preparing, mixing and baking your cupcakes, making icing and a variety of beautiful decoration techniques, and every student gets their own mixer and equipment to use so there’s no working in pairs or watching long demonstrations when you’re itching to get up to your elbows in cake batter.

Because our Complete Cupcakes class uses a bit more equipment and takes longer than most of our other classes spaces are more limited than usual, but there are still two spots remaining for this Saturday’s class and you can find out more information on how to book via our Cupcake Classes page.

New cupcake classes!

cupcake classes

This summer we’re introducing a whole new range of cupcake classes to choose from, with classes available every other week or so (with others on the way) as well as the option to book private cupcake classes for groups and hen days. We’ve been overjoyed by the response to our cupcake classes so far and we think we’ve made them even bigger and better with the addition of our new ones.

First up all classes are at least 3 hours in length, providing every student lots of time to practice new skills and perfect their technique. Each class offers the chance to focus on a variety of techniques, from sugarpaste to swirled piped icing and of course the signature Crumbs and Doilies style of decoration, and each one focuses on a different set of skills so if you’d like to come along to more than one you can do a variety of classes without fear of repetition. Our Cupcake Essentials class makes a perfect introduction to cupcake decorating, but once you’ve mastered the basics we have a selection of classes focusing on specific styles of decoration which will allow you to create your own perfect box of cupcakes to take home.

That’s not all though – for the first time we’ll also be teaching you how to bake! Our Complete Cupcakes class is a 5-hour masterclass in how to not just decorate but also bake the very best cupcakes from scratch.

We’ll be running through the details of each class right here over the next few weeks, and of course you can find full details and availability for all classes, along with online booking, on our cupcake classes page.

Competition winner – April!

Thanks to everyone who entered last month’s competition to win a cupcake decorating class for two, we had lots of guesses as to how many different types of sprinkles we have, and of course everyone was a winner in a way, as if you scanned your competition entry email carefully you’d have found a special code offering 20% off any class booking (*cough* april_comp139 *cough*). Ahem, sorry – just clearing my throat. Anyway, in another way Rose is the biggest winner, having correctly guessed that there were 256 different sprinkles in my stash at the time of writing. Well done Rose – the guys will be in touch so you can select the cupcake class of your dreams (well, the one you’d like anyway) for you and a pal.
