Hi, I hope everyone is continuing to stay safe as the coronavirus situation rumbles on!
I have been stopping myself going stir crazy by attending online live cake classes organised by my favourite stockists of all things cake related ‘Sugar and Crumbs’ (www.sugarandcrumbs.co.uk)
This one was taught by the lovely Georgie Godbold, who is doing 3 full day classes for just £60! Fantastic value 😮
This is the first of the three, featuring Georgie’s trademark ‘Sugar Wobblies’ made with modelling paste and pipe cleaners! Aren’t they cute?
The next in the series is this cute beehive:
Followed by this beautiful cotton reel:
To make the Teapot cake I used 2 x 6” hemisphere pans filled with a vanilla cake batter. But if you don’t have hemisphere pans, Georgie shows you how to carve it in to shape during the class. If you want to know exactly how to create this pretty cake, you can buy this and the following two classes here:
Now that’s worth £60 of anyone’s money in my opinion!
This is what I achieved and I’m so very pleased with it! I’ve never successfully covered a sphere cake before! And the little mice make a lovely keepsake ❤️
The great thing about this live online format is that you do it in your own home from anywhere in the world! The private group in which it takes place is full of fun, friendly and encouraging people too!
And don’t worry about keeping up! The class is filmed and is yours to keep forever, so if like me, it’s too much to do all in one go, just stop, watch the rest and go back to it the next day. I have to pace myself and took 3 days to finish mine!
I have to say, I’m absolutely loving the classes I’ve joined. They have really helped me get through lockdown by giving me something to do without leaving the house, and I’ve learned lots of new skills along the way 😀
