 Cake Decorating Classes

Learn how to create showstopper masterpieces!

Perfect for the home-baker who wants to refine their skills, cake decorating classes are based at my home in Keynsham. They are relaxed and fun, and no experience is necessary. Each class can be tailored to cover the skills you'd like to learn. Some examples include:

  • Drip cake class - learn to create the perfect ganache drip on your cake

  • Ombre cake class - learn how to create a beautiful gradient of colour on your cake

  • Marbled Buttercream class - learn how to create a marbled buttercream with real wow factor!

  • Fondant 101 - how to cover a cake with fondant and get those sharp edges!

  • Textured buttercream techniques - including palette knife painting, stippling, and stencilling

  • Making fondant models

  • Striped buttercream class - use cake combs to create a stripey effect on the sides of your cake

  • How to stack tiered cakes

  • Working on a specific project eg: Norland Nanny course cake requirements, bake a cake for your child's birthday and bring it to decorate with me, or come learn how to make that wedding cake you agreed to do for a friend's daughter!

  • Is there something else you'd like to learn? Get in touch to arrange it.

Class Size
The classes are deliberately kept small, and can be booked for the individual, or for a group of 2 or 3 if you have friends who would like to join you. Cake decorating classes make for a fun birthday celebration, Christmas/birthday gift, or just because you've always wanted to learn a new skill! A maximum of just 3 student places per group ensures you get lots of help and guidance during your time with me. 

What's Included?
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. Each class also includes complementary tea/coffee and cake off cuts of course!

Who are classes for?
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.



These classes are tailored to you, so when you book we will arrange a suitable date.

By way of example, in an average class you will:

  • Learn how to level, fill and crumb coat a 6" round sponge cake (supplied).

  • Cover your cake in buttercream and learn how to get a good-looking 'sharp' finish.

  • Decorate your cake using whichever technique you have chosen to learn.


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 was only 3 people so Laura could help everyone. 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"
