About the lesson

Hi, I learnt to decorate cakes by accident one Christmas when I decided I wanted to decorate the Christmas cake with my daughter and realised how therapeutic it was. I unleashed my creative side and literally spent hours learning as much as I could about the industry. I am Food Hygiene qualified and have taught Health and Safety and IT in the past. I would do 1-2 training at the most and would cover levelling cakes, how to get sharp edges, ganache tips, cake stacking, freezing, the best sugar paste, making flowers, using moulds, covering boards, lustre dust, what is safe, glaze and pearl sprays, stencilling, imprints, wired stars and shapes, carving, edible printing, rice crispie shapes, gum paste, making your own moulds, how to use letter tapits, where to find edible gingham icing and other unusual items and how to make cakes that people will talk about for years to come. I will build your confidence and your love of cake decorating by sharing my passion with you. I am based in Colchester, Essex and each lesson will be structured upon your level and needs. For example, if you've never baked before, we can do cake levelling, covering with ganache and sugarpaste. You may wish to practice stacking a three tier cake. You might want to learn how to do my quilting cake. We could do designs together. Each session is led completely by you, what your goals are and how we can achieve them together. A lesson plan is written and sent to you covering what we did to remind you so you can practice at home.

About Tracy

I have taught lots of different subjects in management roles over the years until ill health changed my stars. I found cake decoration a true pleasure and something I am good at. I'm more than happy to share photos of my work and have a friendly, patient and calm approach to teaching others. I always use worksheets so if someone needs to go over something again, they can do so. I always encourage lots of questions as it's an exciting subject and there's lots of tips and tricks to make some things easier.
