London Cupcake Baking Class

Learn to bake perfect cupcakes with this half day cupcake making workshop in London!

Price for 1 participant

For anyone who loves cupcakes (and everyone loves cupcakes), this is the perfect present. Give someone a cupcake and they can eat for a day; teach someone to bake cupcakes, and they can eat them for a lifetime... and give some to you, too!

You will spend half a day learning to bake perfect cupcakes from scratch. Your teacher is a professional baker who has been making sublime cakes for years, and she will pass on some of her most important tips and tricks to you, so that you can make wonderfully moist and perfectly baked batched of cupcakes in your own kitchen, time and time again. During this class, you will learn to make either a classic American (Red Velvet) cupcake, or a quintessential English (Vanilla) cupcake. Your cupcake mentor will teach you in easy steps that will be clearly explained to you, so that all those common baking disasters (curdled mixture, cupcakes of vastly differing sizes!) are a thing of the past. Some of the important baking techniques you'll get to grips with are sifting, choosing the right ingredients, and how to create variations on a recipe. You'll also learn to control the shape that you cupcake bakes into, either a flat top or a peak. You'll spend time towards the end of the class decorating your cakes with delicious frosting and decorations, and by the end of the class, you'll have twelve beautiful fresh cupcakes to take away with you!

So if you want to up your cupcake game, or you're looking for a gift for a cupcake lover in London, this full day cupcake baking class truly is the icing on the cake!

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.


11208870_10206654649350136_2129843426_n (1)What immediately caught my eye was the spread of colour popping across the table – different tubs of sprinkles every shade of the rainbow, in every shape and colour imaginable – we would certainly be spoilt for choice in this cupcake decorating class! 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.


11180242_10153302519951241_235207088_nCups of tea in one hand and a cupcake in the other, Nadia began to show us expert techniques in creating the perfect cupcake swirl. 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!
