Let Lesley from “Designer Cupcakes” teach you her trade secrets to create really amazing cupcakes. My cupcakes are a cut above the rest’, says Lesley, no boring swirls and sprinkles here! I will show you that creating beautifully decorated, artistic cupcakes is actually really simple, when you know how! At my Masterclasses you will be provided with everything you need to make a stunning presentation box of cupcakes to take home and impress your family and friends! You will learn lots of different techniques including how to pipe using a piping bag, rolling and cutting sugerpaste icing, creating 3D decorations and special finishing touches. We will even give you a hand embroidered “Designer Cupcake” apron! (available to purchase after class). You will also get the chance to savour a delicious cupcake during the class with a little something to wash it down with. After the class there is the chance to browse around the “Designer Cupcake” pop up shop which is bursting at the seams with all the goodies you need to create the perfect cupcakes at home.

Most classes are suitable for children aged 4 and upwards, we do ask that they are accompanied by an adult attending the class.
