Beginners Ganache, Marzipan, Piping & Icing Class (1 Day)

Beginners Ganache, Marzipan, Piping & Icing Class (1 Day)


This one day beginners basics is a super class for those wanting a introduction to cake decorating and how to learn creating those super sharp edges on a ganached and a marzipaned cake.

We will level and fill a 6" sponge cake, cover with white chocolate ganache using the amazing PROFROSTER tool and ganaching plates, then ice with sugar paste and create a sharp edged finish. I will then also show you how to marzipan a 6” fruitcake to achieve sharp edged finish (ready for you to cover at home as they require overnight to set).

Finally we will work on some basic stencilling & piping techniques and simple sugar flowers decoration.

All cakes and equipment will be provided by ourselves.

There would be a limited number of students per class. You will be spaced apart, face masks are to be worn, a hand washing area and sanitisers are available. All students are to advise before they attend if they are feeling unwell/have a temperature and therefore not attend the class. Each student will have their own set of equipment to use in class. Drinks and lunch are provided (sandwiches/snacks) however there are kettle/fridge facilities and a microwave should you wish to bring your own food.

Poppy Pickering needs to make you aware that if circumstances change such as another local lockdown due to coronavirus then the class date will be moved to January/February 2021.
