Shortbread Bake & Decorate


Learn top tips for perfectly baked shortbread with a variety of decorating skills - 3 hours (£48)

This three hour workshop, taught by Melanie of Devenish Girl, will teach you how to bake the perfect shortbread using Melanie's own traditional recipe. The shortbread shapes you make will be themed (we are currently running classes with a 'Christmas' theme) and, once baked, you will learn a variety of skills to decorate them beautifully using fondant, royal icing, pearls and other extras.

For your shortbread shapes and decorations, the class may feature on of the following themes depending on the season:

  • Summer theme - flower, butterfly, bird & ice-cream shaped shortbread

  • Autumn theme - pumpkin, witch, ghost & moon shaped shortbread - perfect for Halloween!

  • Christmas theme - gingerbread people, baubles, Christmas trees and snowman shaped shortbread

Melanie will also teach you how to bake and decorate shortbread with a beautiful vintage 'chalkboard' design which can be adapted for all sorts of occasions, especially as wedding favours.

You will take home all the shortbread you bake and decorate during the session (around 6-8), as well as tasting some along the way with tea & coffee while Melanie shares her shortbread secrets with you! This sort of shortbread is so easily adaptable to a variety of themes, that after this 3 hour session you will be able to bake and decorate shortbread for any occasion.


If you join us on Friday 26th October, we'll be making Halloween themed shortbread! Or get in to the Christmas spirit at our Christmas themed class on Wednesday 5th December!
