Woodland Wedding Cake Class (ONLINE)

In this online class you will learn how to make this rustic, woodland themed 2 tier wedding cake, complete with fox bride and groom toppers.

This live online class will take place in a private Facebook group on
Friday 14th and Saturday 15th May 2021


Want to learn how to decorate a cake with a rustic tree bark effect?

I will teach you to create this texture by hand – no moulds or impression mats required, just very simple modelling tools.

Or how to make these cute woodland fox bride and groom toppers?

I will teach you simple modelling skills and techniques, which you can use to create other toppers too.

You will learn how to colour the cakes using both an airbrush and with hand dusting techniques. Making this class suitable for those who don’t own an airbrush machine.

What equipment will I need?

You will need a basic cake decorating kit, such as rolling pins, spatula, cake boards, dowels, rolling pin etc, as well as some simple modelling tools and cutters. I also use a silicone mould for creating the various nuts and seeds.

The texture for the cake is made with simple modelling tools, no need to buy a mould or impression mat for this.

I have tried to keep equipment required to a minimum, without the need for buying expensive tools.

An airbrush is useful, but certainly not essential, as I will show you how to colour the cakes in an alternative way for those who don’t have one.

The full list of equipment and materials will be available in the private FB group, but if you have any questions before purchasing the class, please get in touch with me to ask for more information.
