Wedding, Engagement and Party Cupcakes
Our Wedding, Engagement and Party Cupcakes class is the class for those considering making and decorating cupcakes for any big event or party. It is also the perfect class for anyone already running a cupcake business or considering setting one up as cupcakes are the “in” thing for weddings, corporate events and birthdays. This class is suitable for beginners and intermediates.
Class Times and Equipment
This class starts at 10.15 and finishes around 5pm. Complete beginners may also wish to attend our Cupcake Basics class. If you are particularly interested in flowers, we suggest you also attend our Cupcakes in Bloom class as well. Note however, that the giant rose (see above) is covered in this wedding and party class.
What you will learn
Our Wedding/Party Cupcake class focuses on all things beautiful and perfect just as any wedding, birthday or big party should be. We will teach you the tricks of the trade which will save you lots of time so you can make lots of cupcakes for a big event without compromising their stunning looks. Amongst other things, we will also show you:
- How to make a giant rose (see image above) in a single colour or multi tone.
- How to make a bouquet of roses and other accent cakes.
- How to make dainty satin shoes.
- How to make little pearls.
- How to work with colours and edible paints.
- How to make little flowers and delicate wedding and party designs.
- How to work with our Love Hearts design.
- How to make little silky buttercream domes on your cupcakes.
- How to properly work with and apply fondant with a neat and smooth finish.
- How to paint with metallic paints on to your cakes.
- How to make bows and stripes on your cakes.
- How to work with a limited colour scheme (as this is usually required with weddings and parties).
- How we price our wedding and party cupcakes.
Everything you make for the tops of your cupcakes will be 100% edible. During the class, we will discuss the best way to store and transport your cupcakes, timings for preparing the cakes, why we use fondant rather than butter cream where possible for weddings and lots of other tips and advice for making cakes for a big event. If you a considering running your own cupcake business (or if you already do), this class will teach you some of the tricks for making wedding, engagement or party cupcakes that everyone will like.
Designing and Making a Cupcake Tower
Unlike our other classes, in this class will discuss how to design and make a cupcake tower, costs and practicalities of offering to make a tower for a wedding or party and the best way to achieve a striking effect that any guest will fall in love with.
Understanding and using colour
We will discuss colour in detail with you so you get a really good understanding of which colours will look best in photos and which colours will complement a colour-coded event. As weddings and parties are all about tailoring everything to specific requirements, we will teach you transferable skills that you will be able to use in all sorts of wedding and other event occasions – whether contemporary and modern or vintage, retro and niche. As we run small classes, we can cater for everyone’s needs with everyone receiving individual attention.
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.

Take Home Fact Pack
You will be given a fact sheet describing all the techniques you learnt during the day so you can refresh your mind next time you bake as there is a lot to teach you. Of course, there are also lots of tips on our Facebook page
We supply lots of tea and coffee throughout the day and you can take breaks whenever you wish. We have a really big kitchen with separate standing and seated areas, a shop and an areas outside if you want to have lunch in the garden (although we often find people so engrossed in their decorating that they continue right through their lunch!).
You can ask as many questions as you want throughout the day, ask about tips and tricks of the trade and have a thoroughly fun time. You will meet like-minded people in this class so it will be a little haven of creativity for the day.
