This course is for anyone who wants to be able to develop basic skills in cake decorating, either for personal interest, to prepare for a qualification, or to learn skills for employment in the catering sector
You will not need experience of cake decorating to do this course, but as the course involves taking notes, weighing and measuring, you will need to have basic levels of English and maths. You will have a short initial assessment at the start of the course to ensure that it is suitable for you.
It could lead to further courses in sugar craft techniques at intermediate or advanced level, or to a qualification at entry level or level 1.
To ensure that you gain maximum benefit from your course you will need to attend all sessions, be punctual, and bring the correct materials to each session.
Fees for this course do not include the cost of materials and tools. During the course you will need to purchase equipment, sugar paste and other sundries costing approximately £50.
For the first week, you will need to bring a note pad and pen, as well as a roll of greaseproof paper. You will also need to wear an apron and some form of head covering during class.
