Couture Cake Cupcake Decorating Class

by minibites

I’ve always enjoyed the smiles and oohs and aahs that come from people admiring fondant decorated cupcakes, and although I admit they are not the most flavoursome things on a cake, it’s amazing what things this icing can make.

My fellow baker and I spent our Saturday morning learning some neat tricks and tips from the pros at Couture Cake in a quick 2-hour class. It felt like being in kindergarten all over again moulding and rolling play-doh textured icing and cutting our wonderful shapes and faces.

Beginning with 6 plain cupcakes, we begin by spreading chocolate ganache and white fondant as a base for our decorations. We dive into the world of quilting, edible pearls, shimmer dust, floral tools, cutters, water and edible pens – learning to make 3D ladybugs and flowers, balloons and cheesy bears.

The tools that are definitely going on my wishlist is a water pen (so much easier to use than a paintbrush & pot of water!), KopyKake edible pen for fiddly details, a set of ball tools for 3D flowers, a quilting tool and plenty of cutters! And not to forget, the wonders of what a square of transparency paper, which is used as little sander for the white bases.
