Learn how to decorate cupcakes with this fabulous two hour lesson in London, and get the skills to take your cakes to a whole new level of loveliness!

This is a really fun and informal class that will help you get creative and teach you some really useful new skills, so that you can start to really impress with your baked creations! You don't have to have any experience at all with cupcakes or decoration, but if you do have a little bit of knowledge, this class allows you to really hone your skills and improve on your technique. You'll be learning from a veritable cupcake queen, who will teach you how to do every step of the process, from filling the piping bag properly all the way through to adding the finishing touches to your cupcake decoration. You'll learn to create a few different styles, learning the 'core four' icing techniques; rose swirl, classic swirl, two-tier, and iced gem. On the day, you can play around with different colours, and experiment with glitter, sprinkles and lots of other delightful decorations to make your cakes as beautiful as can be!

This is a truly lovely way to spend an afternoon and a great way to get creative in the kitchen, so if you're looking to improve your cake making skills, or you're looking for a present for a cupcake-fiend in London, then look no further!

PicMonkey CollageLast weekend I was truly treated in a lesson in cupcake decorating. Taking place on a sunny Saturday afternoon, Sophie and I strolled to the location of the event - which was a convenient 10 minutes away from Kensal Green station. We arrived at a pretty town house in a friendly suburban neighbourhood, both double checking the address before we knocked, as were expecting a company building…not someone’s home! We walked into the beautiful house - decorated in a Vintage Chic style - and warmly welcomed in by resident cupcake Queen- Nadia. Nadia led us into huge open-plan kitchen where we met our small group of 6 and took our seats, at the large oak table.

Nadia then proceeded to lay out Tupperware boxes filled with cupcakes (which she had woken up at 6am to freshly bake)…they smelt divine! Filling our piping bags with different, spring pastel coloured icing - one in a natural butter cream, the second in a mint green and the final one in a lilac, and awaited our next instruction.

Our piping bags were cut - standing up, with one hand for guiding the nozzle and the other pressurising the top of the bag, we began to create delicate swirls at the base of the cupcake. Nadia then went through a variety of techniques,  the overall look relying on the segregated edge of the nozzle as well as the width creating an array of different patterns. These included icing forms of; fondant domes, roses, swirls, iced gem, two tier and leaves. Armed with a piping bag and a collection of glitter sprinkles, each participant received 6 cupcakes each and our creative masterpieces began to blossom as we were left to own devices.

One lady in the group was accompanied by a few members of her bridal party, including her mother-in-law who was prepping to create the wedding cake herself, I certainly think she gained more than enough tips and ideas for the day!

11195431_10153302519956241_832123415_nThis experience is perfect for a group of close “girl friends”, as the class is very relaxed with an informal and personal teaching style throughout. This is a truly fun afternoon and one of my favourite experiences to date. The finished cupcakes were easy to create and looked exquisitely beautiful (as if bakery bought) - sadly they did not last! Thanks Nadia!

Tip of the Day: Place a tray of water into the oven in order for the cakes to remain moist for the perfect sponge!
