In this 2-day course, Marianne will share with you her tips and techniques on creating a beautifully finished "naked" cake that will leave no one questioning if it's been accidentally left unfinished.

In day one, you will learn how to bake beautifully even and neat golden-coloured sponge layers. 

You will then go one to make smooth Swiss Meringue buttercream which is a more stable icing, perfect for warmer weather and for stacking multiple tiers. Marianne will show you how to create delicious and tasteful fillings.

In day two, you will learn how to split, layer, pipe, dowel and decorate your sponges and make your sheer wafer paper fantasy flowers.

Marianne will also cover tips for transporting your cake safely.


You will leave with a 2-tier semi masked and decorated cake, a certificate of attendance and the confidence to recreate this design at home.
