Classes

Cakes by Robin has grown at a phenomenal rate and the business continues to go from strength to strength. At some point in the future Robin will continue to offer a range of cake baking, decorating and sculpting classes to share some of her wealth of experience and insight into the world of cakes directly from her cake studio in south west London.

Our range of cake decorating classes are popular not only with amateur bakers but also with groups of friends looking to do something a little different for an event or special occasion.

Stacking cakes isn’t as easy as it looks! In this class you will learn how to cut, fill and dowel to create an even and stable two tiered cake. As well as learning how to flawlessly ice your cake you will also be taught traditional piping techniques including how to get the perfect piped dots and stripes and a simple yet effective technique called ‘brush embroidery’.

Once put together, the Sugar Flower Master Class will teach you all the techniques you will need to make delicate sugar flowers for all occasions. You will have access to all our professional tools, cutters and materials. Starting with simple sugar roses, our decorator will teach you how to apply this method to the more complex, constructed tropical flowers that are becoming ever more popular in cake designs. Use your flowers to decorate your own cake to take home and show off to your family!
