Learn to bake your own choice of sponge cake with buttercream filling - 3 hours (£48)
During this 3 hour class, you will learn how to make your perfect sponge cake. From classic Victoria sponge to chocolate, lemon and Ferrero rocher, coffee and beyond - the world of sponge cakes is at your fingertips! Melanie of Devenishgirl will share with you all of her top tips on baking the lightest sponge possible, and the creamiest buttercream, and lead a discussion on flavour combinations to help you decide on your own sponge cake flavour. There will be a wide variety of flavour options to choose from for your sponge, including:
Vanilla – choose from vanilla bean, raspberry or strawberries and cream
Chocolate – choose from classic chocolate, Ferrero rocher or black forest
Coffee – choose from coffee, vanilla or mocha
Lemon – choose from lemon, lemon and elderflower or lemon sherbet
While your sponge is baking, you will discuss flavour combinations and cake fillings, then learn how to make buttercream - as with the cake, the flavour will be entirely your own choice and Melanie will guide you on the best combinations of sponge, jam and buttercream. Perhaps you could pair a lemon sponge with an elderflower buttercream, or a vanailla sponge with raspberry jam filling and strawberry ripple buttercream... the possibilities are endless!
You will sandwich your cakes with your choice of jam or curd and your own buttercream then choose from a variety of options to decorate your cake in a modern or traditional style, as well as learning to use the correct utensils to create the finish you want for your own cake.
The best part is of course that you get to take home your sponge cake creation to enjoy along with a foolproof recipe, top tips and a comprehensive list of flavour options and combinations (and ideas for decorating them with simple sophistication) so you can create your own sponge cakes in any flavour you could dream of in the future.
