Shell Cake Decorating Class | £150
All skill levels are welcome for this one – you can be a complete beginner, home baker or keen cake decorator who wants to hone your skills and pick up a few tips and tricks. It’s a small, very friendly and welcoming class of ten cake-lovers.
With teachers Lily, Laura or Megan (or some combination of the three!), you’ll learn to stack, fill and ice your own delicious celebration cake.
In this small, friendly class, we will teach you to handle a piping bag, turntable and palette knife confidently and to stack and fill a cake with a delicious, creamy US-style buttercream. You’ll then learn to ice a smooth final coat of icing on your cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream.
We’ll also teach you some simple but really effective decorating tips and tricks you can use again and again – firstly, how to master shell border piping, then how to use shell nozzles in various sizes to create versatile designs you can use in all your cake designs. Finally, we will teach you how to use edible gold lustre to decirate a handmade chocolate shell (we provide) as a cake topper.
You decide the artistic direction of your cake – or follow our design – and you will leave with a fabulous Lily Vanilli cake of your own creation as well as really achievable, impressive decorating skills to use on your own cakes and cupcakes forevermore!
We will supply coffee, tea, delicious snacks and Mirabeau sparkling rose, and you’ll have the chance to ask Megan & the team all your baking questions.
You then take home your very own delicious Lily Vanilli cake (usually priced at £70), along with recipes for two cakes and both buttercreams and the skills you need to decorate glorious cakes at home.
Following the class, we also send you a lifetime discount card, which you can use for all and any future Lily Vanilli orders online, including classes and cakes.
If you book – please let us know in the comments box on the checkout page your choice of vanilla, gluten-free chocolate or chocolate sponge 🙂
Please note – we don’t currently offer a dairy-free option for this class, but we will be running lots of wonderful vegan classes in future so don’t worry!
