    Event description

    Have you mastered the baking process but still use the ‘splotch and spread’ icing technique? Are you a complete newbie and want to learn how to hide that lopsided cake that grew too much on one side? Or are you in between and want to learn how to dazzle your friends with your next cupcake batch?

    Whatever your experience in the kitchen, join Maria and learn how to pipe icing and fancy up your baked goods from shortbreads to cookies, cupcakes and of course, cakes!

    What will we cover?

    In this hands on workshop you will learn:

    • Basics for preparing the ideal piping buttercream/ icing
    • Tips for how to get the best consistency, ingredients and colouring
    • Review the different piping tips, brands and what they are used for (with some more photos of cakes and some more swooning)
    • Get practical with how to set up your piping bag.
    • Cover basic techniques like swirls, shells, writing and basket weave
    • Demonstrate a couple of the more complicated techniques like roses and ruffles

      Maria Yebra is a self-taught passionate baker and cupcake maker, if there is such a title… She started baking as a hobby, doing cupcakes for friends’ parties and soon she had baked her way through all the cake recipe books in her library.  Then she discovered that the fun part is decorating (and eating!) such bakes and set on to learn piping techniques, gum paste decorations, fondant and pretty much any other sugar based technique. 

      In addition to crochet and crafting, she also has a passion for cooking and baking, light painting, Spanish shoes and running Laneway Learning.
