Spend a whole day at Chitty's Cakes learning to bake and decorate a sponge cake and beautiful shortbread shapes - 6 hours (£100) including lunch
Join us in our beautiful new studio in the Zellig building at the Custard Factory for a full day of baking and decorating. Your day will start at 10am and you will be guided by Melanie, who runs Devenishgirl - a Birmingham based social enterprise - who will teach you all her top tips for baking and decorating.
In the morning you will learn to bake the perfect sponge cake (in your choice of popular flavours) and make traditional buttercream which you will use to sandwich and decorate your cake. Melanie will take you through some simple but effective ways to make your sponge cakes look amazing and you will finish the morning with a stunning sponge cake big enough to take home and share with the whole family.
Lunch will be provided on the day (as well as refreshments throughout the day) and you can enjoy a bit of downtime with your fellow bakers ready for a creative afternoon.
Your afternoon will be spent baking and decorating shortbread. We have a wide choice of shapes and designs available and you will learn to make them colourful and unique, exploring different techniques and mediums such as fondant and royal icing.
This experience day would suit complete beginners as well as regular home bakers who want to brush up their skills and spend a Saturday with like-minded foodies. You will leave with a couple of foolproof recipes, loads of tips and tricks to improve your baking and a smile on your face. You'll also be very popular with friends and family when you arrive home with lots of treats!
