By teaching someone how to create something themselves that i usually earn a living from doing for them may seem a little odd. The truth is, there are a hell of a lot of birthdays, christenings, weddings etc going on every single day and i just can't fit everything in, which is why i offer the private tuition service. This way, you get the knowledge, a fun day without leaving the house, i get a brew, and best of all, you get your wonderful masterpiece at the end of it!
The private tuition is a great way of learning basic or complicated aspects of cake decorating whilst making your ideal cake, and by tying it in with an event you have coming up, it is a great opportunity to show off your creative skills in front of friends and family!
Last week was the turn of Lara, who can be seen in the picture attached to the post, posing with her Cookie Monster Christening Cake! Having made cakes myself for Lara in the past, and knowing her to try her hand at a few designs herself, the private tuition was the perfect way to allow her to improve her skills in areas that are not as familiar whilst getting the finished design at the end of it!
This design was perfect for Lara as her connection with the Cookie Monster is bordering on obsession, even having a Cookie Monster Bride and Groom on her wedding cake! However, now was the turn of her daughters Christening, and what better way to celebrate than to have Cookie Monster Mummy and Daddy, standing with Baby Cookie Monster splashing around in the baptismal font! As Lara knew how to cut, fill and cover cakes already, i brought along the 2 tiered cake to save time and concentrate more on getting the figures exactly how Lara wanted them for the top. I talked her through it from start to finish whilst we both made the 3 characters, obviously using Lara's on the top of the finished cake!
As you can see, the results speak for themselves and i hear the guests were all taken aback by the creativity shown by Lara!
So why not give it a go yourself! I can talk you through exactly what is achievable within the time allocated, depending on the complexity of the design as well as your experience in cake decoration. Gift Vouchers are also available if there is someone you know who might like to brush up on their skills or simply to just show off to the other mums!
I can bring as much or as little equipment that is necessary, all i ask in return is for a nice amount of enthusiasm and the kettle boiled.
