The Enchanted Fairy Garden Cupcake Class
Our Enchanted Fairy Garden Cupcake Class is all about fairies and magical creation. We take you back to those childhood memories of, enchanted gardens and pretty flowers and teach you a host of new skills including modelling people. You will make fairies from scratch and we will show you how to model everything from legs and arms to little edible fairy clothes! to This class is suitable for beginners and intermediates.
Class Times and Equipment
This class starts promptly at 10.15am and runs to 4.30pm. We supply everything you need to make perfect fairy cupcakes so you do not need to bring anything with you.
What you will learn
This class is all about modelling people. We will show you the best way to make little human looking fairies and princesses. We will teach you the art of expression, movement and how to make each fairy have its own individual little character.
Our emphasis is on flat topped cupcakes made with sugar paste decoration which are then decorated in 3D. As we will be working in 3D during the day, these designs will take longer than other more simple designs (at least the first time you do it!). Therefore, we will focus on making 6 great designs. We will work though each design with you as you go along with our emphasis being on clean, professional finishes - quality rather than quantity. As a result, we will not teach you how to make the basic cupcakes from scratch (see our Cupcake Basics class if you are a complete beginner and want to cover baking as well).
We will teach you how to work properly with sugar paste and florist paste to make fully edible little fairies. We will show you how to model heads, limbs and clothes and well as lots of facial expressions. Once you have been taught the skills, these fairies can be used on cupcakes or on big cakes opening up a new world of creation in your cake making. These skills are fully transferable to other human characters.
Making Gardens and Fairy Homes
We will show you a new technique for making little garden pathways and Fairy Homes that are super cute and life like. We will show you how to manipulate your sugar paste for different textures found within gardens like stones, grass, wood, metal and lots more.
Working with buttercream.
We will show you how to use the grass nozzle to make grass decorations and how to make buttercream that looks realistic between the garden cobblestones.
We will discuss and demonstrate how to use colour and the best colours to use depending on the occasion – modelling people often requires differing considerations when it comes to colour and we can tell you all the tricks and secrets of the trade.
The Fairy and Garden designs you will be taught are Pretty Witty Cakes’ own original designs which have been carefully selected for this class. They may look difficult but you will be able to make them. And, once you know how, you will be able to transfer the techniques you learn to all sorts of other cakes – thus you will actually end up learning a whole new set of skills which you can grow and expand yourselves.
All of our ingredients are vegetarian. All the decorations will be made from sugar paste, flower paste or buttercream so will all be edible and totally yummy.
Once you have finished decorating all your cakes, you will be provided with a presentation box to transport your perfect and fresh cupcakes home with you.
