I’ve been asked many times if I can teach the skills of painting onto cakes so I have finally designed a class to do just that.

The class will cover several of the techniques I use when painting onto cakes and cupcakes as well as a few handy shortcuts or cheats for those who aren’t as confident with freehand painting. I will also cover the most valuable tip of all; how to fix mistakes!

We will look at how to take inspiration from a variety of sources when planning a design for a painted cake. You will then have plenty of time to try each technique on sample fondant bases before choosing your most successful to reproduce onto cupcake toppers and a display cake.

You will receive an instruction sheet with all the techniques covered during the day as well as details of the products and equipment you will need to recreate the designs at home.


*Please note: the images shown are examples of my previous painted cakes, cupcakes and toppers, you will not be painting these particular images in the class.


Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, all you need to bring with you is a packed lunch and lots of enthusiasm.

This class is suitable for complete beginners or for those with some previous experience.
