This Three and half hour Cake Baking Class London. This cake baking class is suitable for all levels and covers step-by-step techniques, so that you never again need to worry about anything from the mixture curdling to scaling up your recipe for a larger cake. Step by step guide on when it is necessary to sift flour to what kind of sugar you should use and how to adapt the recipe to create countless variations.
While your cake is baking you produce a delicious buttercream to fill and ice your cake with. Once your cake has cooled you will be taught how to use a cake wire to ensure that all your layers are even before icing it with a ‘crumb’ coating.
