Take your cupcakes to the next level of craftsmanship and sophistication… This baking and decorating course will show you a huge range of decorative techniques and exquisite cake designs so you can create unforgettable wedding cupcakes that will be the talk of guests for years to come. 

We will give you all the insider tips when it comes to creating professional wedding cupcakes and, importantly, you will learn how to do this in an actual working bakery where our experienced designers have catered for hundreds of weddings.

You will bake your own cupcakes from scratch using a recipe formulated by us at The Gourmet Cupcake Company to last longer than other sponge recipes, essential when displaying cakes at a wedding. You will also learn how to fill cupcakes with a choice of delicious fillings for that extra touch of luxury expected at special occasions.

Don’t waste your money! No need for lots of courses elsewhere, here at TGCC we will show you them all in a single day! From stencilling to brush embroidery, piping techniques to perfect sugar flowers. And all of this on 5 different icing styles and techniques - a truly comprehensive course for those of you that have your own cupcake business or are generally serious about cupcakes!
