Intensive Cupcake Decorating Class

Book yourself on one of our popular classes and become a professional and confident cupcake baker and decorator in a day!

Our classes also make the perfect gift for a creative loved one and gift vouchers are available.


Classes for up to 7 students are held in a charming country kitchen, backing on to the Luton Hoo Estate in Harpenden. Tea, coffee and, of course, a generous supply of cakes are provided throughout the day!

All equipment and ingredients are provided along with a handout which provides you with fail-safe recipes and cupcake baking and decorating tips.

At the end of the class, students will professionally package-up and take home 12 of their fabulous creations, adorned with edible glitter to showcase to friends and family.

What will you learn?...


You will learn how to bake perfectly moist, light and delicious cupcakes and we will reveal how to bake your cupcakes to create a perfectly flat sponge top, or to create a peaked top.


You will learn how to make, pipe and colour buttercream with confidence to create a variety of different effects. Our 'perfect to swirl' buttercream recipe differs from the usual recipes and we will explain how.


You will be shown how to work with different types of sugarpaste and teach you how to use a wide variety of cake-decorating equipment and cutters.


The piece de resistance! - You will learn how to make an impressive variety of intricate and edible decorations, including flowers (the petals will be individually shaped to 'pop up'), butterflies, hearts, stars and most impressively 3D miniature shoes, handbags and hats (to make our signature 'fashion accessories' cupcakes!).


If that isn't enough, your cupcakes will also sparkle with a sprinkling of edible glitter!

We will also give you details of where you can purchase competitively priced equipment. This is especially useful for budding professional cupcake bakers. We can provide you with details of some suppliers for bulk orders.
