Tutor: Kelly Mauger

Join Kelly as she demonstrates how to decorate a fashionable 'Drip Cake' in the style she has designed for the NHS & Frontline Day Tea Party which is due to take place on 5th July 2021. This is a great decorating technique however for various birthday and celebration cakes so Kelly will also share images of some other options of decorating within this style of cake to inspire you!

Kelly will show you how to make butter icing, how to colour it, how to crumb coat and final coat your cake and how to make and apply the chocolate ganache drips. She will talk through the NHS Scrubs topper as pictured and also discuss other methods for finishing and decorating this style of cake.

We recommend that this course is viewed as a demonstration however you are welcome to decorate along if you already have some decorating experience and are feeling brave. If you do intend to work alongside Kelly, please ensure you have all of your ingredients weighed up and equipment ready to go.

Recipes, Equipment List and Zoom log in details will be included at the bottom of your confirmation email after you have registered. 

Please note you will be sent the recipe for a cake from start to finish, however Kelly will only be demonstrating the decorating aspect of the cake. You are welcome to use any other flavour of cake that you have made or brought but it will need height and it must be completely cool before decorating. If you are in any doubt about working alongside Kelly, we highly recommend that you sit back and enjoy this as a demonstration and have a pen and paper to hand so that you can jot down any helpful hints and tips before trying this technique yourself. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.
