Classes


IMG_2886

Our classes are hands-on workshops with small class sizes (maximum of 4 students) for plenty of individual guidance. Even if you are completely new to cake decorating and have never picked up a rolling pin, you will leave the class armed with a whole bunch of skills and be sure to amaze and impress your friends and family with your creations. If you have some experience with cake decorating, this will be an opportunity for you to pick our brains and hone your craft.

Book into a class today to have a grand old time nattering away with like-minded decorators while you learn how to make beautiful cupcakes, toppers and flowers in a fun and relaxed environment. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Location

Classes are held in Hurstville, NSW (address will be advised after booking).

About your instructor

Lorinda Seto (that’s me) has won numerous awards at the Sydney Easter Show for her decorated cakes and baked goods. She has been teaching cake decorating and sugar art since 2010 and has also taught classes at Faye Cahill’s studio. She is experienced in making big wedding cakes, christening and novelty cakes, with her trademark being birdcages festooned with sugar flowers and chocolate birds. As a cake decorator, she is known for her attention to detail and somewhat Type A personality, which makes her fit in rather well with her fellow cake decorators. (If Type A isn’t you, don’t fear – she is married to a Type B and that seems to be going ok.)

All materials and equipment are provided for use in the class and you don’t need to bring anything. Comprehensive notes are provided so you can make the project at home.
