Double-Barrel Cake with Helen Mansey

Course photo is illustrative and does not necessarily represent the actual course topic - please see the course description for specific topics covered on the course.

Learn the techniques for creating on-trend, tall cakes with a double-barrel tier from expert tutor, author and wedding cake maker, Helen Mansey.

Course tutor: Helen Mansey

Course date and times:
  • Saturday 19th October: 9:30am to 4:00pm

Double-barrel (or double-height) cakes continue to be popular with brides-to-be and are great if you want to make a feature of a cake tier. Extended, double-barrel tiers also allow you to add height to a wedding or celebration cake without making it look too formal or imposing.

Things you will learn:

  • Discover Helen Mansey’s tried-and-tested methods for stacking and covering tall tiers so they look professional and remain stable.
  • assemble and dowel two regular tiers to make a double-layer cake using Helen’s central dowel technique
  • how to cover a tall tier with ganache and sugarpaste for a professional, sharp-edged finish
  • how to assemble a two-tier wedding cake with a double-barrel bottom tier

 

What you take home:

  • a tall, two-tiered wedding cake which you can take home and decorate
  • the confidence you need to create tall cakes at home
  • a Squires Kitchen Certificate and a range of top tips from a professional wedding cake maker.

Please note that the cake shown in the picture is taken from Helen Mansey’s book, Bellissimo Wedding Cakes; the cake you make on the course will be covered but not decorated.
