Do you imagine yourself diving into a sea of colourful sprinkles? Cool, same. I have the perfect workshop for you. 

Looking for lovers of bright colourful decorations, mermaids, unicorns, sprinkles, and all things shiny. We’re whipping up 6 gorgeous cupcakes in our Mermaid & Unicorn Frosting and Decorating Workshop. 

This is a 2.5-hour hands-on workshop where you will learn the hidden tips and tricks that will make your next cupcake or cake too pretty to bite into. By the end of the workshop, you'll be taking home 6 AMAZING cupcakes that you would have decorated with your own bare hands.

There are three components to the workshop that we'll be focusing on:

1. Buttercream Frosting

You'll learn the absolute essentials in creating that perfect, fluffy buttercream you have always dreamed of. You’ll be hands-on with our Kenwood stand mixers to create our delicious buttercream. You’ll learn how to colour buttercream and even some secrets of multicolour frostings for that perfect hue of aquamarine or rainbow icing.  

2. Fondant Icing

We'll show you just how easy it is to use fondant icing, from colouring it to creating 3D shapes; such as mermaid tails and unicorn horns. You will be part of an interactive and hands-on workshop with step by step demonstrations that will allow you to create your own fondant masterpieces to top your gorgeous cake. 

3. Decorating Techniques

We’ll teach you how to put those finishing touches on your creations from filing a piping bag yourself and experimenting with an assortment of piping tip styles. In this Mermaid & Unicorn cupcake workshop, we’ll run through the styling of all your hand-made decorations with the perfect matching colours and piping tip techniques. 

What you'll get:

  • 6 Gorgeous themed cakes decorated by you

  • Our fluffy buttercream frosting recipe

We will be there for you to pick our brains and finally solve those decorating disasters. We also don't like running boring classes where you'll fall asleep listening to a boring teacher do the demonstrations and spitting out theory. This is the most awesome workshop and you'll feel EXCITED to be part of it. Oh did we mention that you get to do it all inside our most amazing kitchens? Yes, you'll feel like you're part of the Cupcake Central team on the day.

By the end of this class, you'll be decorating like a pro!
