 Cake Decorating Classes

2020 Spring/Summer Term Dates

Perfect for the home-baker who wants to refine their skills, cake decorating classes are based at my home in Keynsham. Each class is 2 hours long (7-9pm except where specified below) and you will learn how to create a beautiful cake or cupcakes to take home with you.  

The classes are intimate, with just 3 student places per group, to ensure you get lots of help and guidance during your time with me. Each class also includes complementary tea/coffee and biscuits.

All the ingredients and equipment (including aprons) will be supplied, and I'll also provide you with a box to take your creations home in. A recipe sheet and full instructions for how to recreate the cake at home will also be included, so you can wow all your friends with your new-found skills.

Please note, these classes are intended for home-bakers only. I am unable at this time to teach others within the profession or those looking to start their own businesses.

Children's Decorating Parties

Please get in touch to enquire

1.5 hour package £20 per child for a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 8 children. Parties hosted at your house or mine (Keynsham BS31 2DR), and include:

  • 6 x pre-made cupcakes per child (made by me)

  • 1 x 6-hole cupcake box with stickers to decorate

  • All the equipment and ingredients supplied, including aprons

  • Set up and pack down including cleaning up!

The children will be taught to make 1 x cupcake with a fondant design (eg a fondant creature); 1 x cupcake with a 'build it' design, for example using biscuits and candy eyes to make the cupcake look like a bird; and 1 x buttercream swirl and sprinkles design. They then have the remaining 3 cupcakes to get creative themselves,

putting into practice the techniques they've learned!

I can take theme suggestions (eg 'unicorns' or 'under the sea' or 'space') so the party is tailored to your child's interests.

Every child gets a box they can decorate to take their creations home in (those that don't get eaten!)

[If I am hosting the party at my house in Keynsham, there are complimentary tea/coffee for the grown ups

and squash for the children.]

I can also provide personalised aprons to keep for £6 each. Available in purple, royal blue, turquoise or pink, the aprons are made by another local business that I work collaboratively with, so you can have a bespoke message on them at no extra hassle or delivery fee for you! They make a lovely keepsake from the party.


*If you have a few friends who would like to do a class together please get in touch to discuss, as I can put on a class just for you. Likewise, if you would like to book a cake decorating party, please let me know at:

Here are some reviews from previous classes:

"I have attended all three of Laura’s cake classes and can’t recommend her enough. Everything was well planned and prepared, good value for money, coming away with beautifully decorated cakes. Laura is full of passion, encouragement, knowledge and skill that will be hard to find any where else.
Thank you Laura for three fantastic classes, hopefully see you again soon."

"I attended a class learning how to make a cupcake bouquet. Laura is an excellent teacher and taught us a number of techniques including two tone icing, different piping techniques,

how to make smooth buttercream, and recommended which makes of icing sugar to avoid.

Excellent class, I'd highly recommend"

"I attended Laura's cupcake bouquet class. I'm not very creative at all but Laura made it all easy to understand and I was pretty chuffed with the end result! Would absolutely recommend."


"I've been to a few of Laura's cake decorating classes & they were excellent. The group is only 3 people so Laura can help everyone in the group. Lots of useful hints & tips. If you'd like to learn more decorating techniques then I'd definitely book onto one of Laura's classes"
