Need help with your ‘signature’ bake? Looking to nail that ‘showstopper’?

If you are a keen baker – and with Christmas on the horizon – you will already be thinking about preparing them festive fruitcakes. However, even the best of bakes will need eye-catching decoration to turn it into a Christmas masterpiece.

So, to help you bakers lacking the icing skills to give your cakes a professional finish, a ‘Christmas Cake Icing Master Class’ is being held at Tolson Museum in Huddersfield on Sunday, 13 December 2015.

Bespoke cake makers Jennie’s Cakes will be running the master class, which will teach intricate icing skills to create beautiful centrepieces. Christmas is the theme but the techniques and skills you can learn can be applied to cakes for any occasion.

Mini fruitcakes already prepared with marzipan and icing will be provided for participants to decorate.

There will be two sessions, 12noon-1.30pm and 2pm-3.30pm, each costing £7 per person. Places must be booked by Thursday, 3 December.
