Got a creative eye but still battling with baking? On this course you will bake 3 flavours of cake under the wings of our expert bakers who will show you how to turn out delicious sponges that are the epitome of baking perfection… (**NOTE this course is included free as part of the Neapolitan 3 Tier Cake Course, so if you think you would like to make the full 3 tiered cake after the intensive baking session we recommend you book that course instead**)

Who better to show you these baking techniques than an all-singing, all-dancing working boutique bakery, commissioned to make delicious cakes for satisfied customers after satisfied customer. Our cakes speak for themselves and our many word of mouth referrals are testament to this. But now, we will share with you the secrets of our success!

You will bake on the day an assortment of cake flavours including chocolate, vanilla and raspberry (yes neapolitan is usually strawberry, but we like to do things differently – couldn’t you tell?!) then take home your own cake with a layer of each flavour which you will also learn how to level and ice yourself with buttercream.

You will be privvy to all the top tips from our professional bakery and shop, with valuable advice on anything from key ingredients to the best tins, scaling recipes up and down, oven temperatures to mixing techniques and more. We’ll give you a thorough troubleshooting session too, with the opportunity to ask any questions about baking and we will do our best to make your home mishaps a thing of the past!

At the end of your course you will go home with full recipe sheets for all of the cakes and icing, as well as the confidence to ahcieve successful baking results going forward, and of course your iced 3 layer cake to share with your family and friends. Maybe…
