In this full-day masterclass, Ms. Cupcake and her team will help you master the art of vegan baking and decorating in one day.
You will learn all the tricks and techniques of baking from getting a vegan cake to be light and fluffy and how to replace ‘traditional’ ingredients like eggs, butter and milk. We will teach you everything you need to know to ‘veganise’ your favourite recipes and how to apply different methods to different types of bakes.
At this masterclass, you will learn how to make and decorate: Victoria Sponge Cake, Chocolate Cake, Vanilla Cupcakes, and Chocolate Cupcakes. Plus, you will learn lots of techniques to change these base recipes into even more flavours of cakes.
You will learn how to make the most amazing vegan buttercream icing in a variety of flavours and decorate all your treats like a pro! We will teach you how to fill piping bags, use different types of nozzles to get different effects, how to use pallet knives and side scrappers to decorate layer cakes and how to pipe buttercream icing onto cupcakes and layer cakes.
At the end of the masterclass you will go home with a box of 12 cupcakes and a 9” 2-layer cake to share with your family and friends.
You will start your day with coffee and tea and we will also provide you with a catered vegan lunch partway through the day. You’ll get to take home a Ms. Cupcake tote bag filled with recipes, piping bags, a large cupcake piping nozzle and other fab surprises to turn you into a master baker at home.
