Cake Baking and Decorating - Beginners - Part-Time
Picture the scene: it's a warm Tuesday evening in September, you are sat in front of the TV watching the Great British Bake-Off contestants at work and start to think - "I wish I could do that!"- well now you can start to learn how at the College of West Anglia!
Using the Novus Restaurant's excellent facilities and kitchen, you will start to learn the basics of baking and decorating - including how to bake, split, level, coat and cover your cake ready to decorate. Whether you have baked before or not, our industry-trained staff will spend time with you and the class to help you perfect your cake and learn the skills to make recipes which you'll be able to create at home.
You'll be looking at baking individual cakes, tray bakes and sandwich cakes whilst learning a range of decorating/finishing techniques using buttercream & chocolate.
