Created as part of the Peggy Porschen Academy’s ‘Cakes in Bloom’ series, this hands-on class is designed to give our Students the confidence to bake the perfect sponge and make expertly crafted sugar flowers.
Students learn how to properly trim and layer the sponge to make these adorable mini cakes, directly inspired by Peggy’s recent book, “Cakes in Bloom”. You will also dust and steam your sugar pansies to give them an impeccable finish. At the end of the day, you will go home with a gorgeous collection of decorated chocolate mini cakes.
Throughout the day our Students hone their baking skills and create their own chocolate sponge from scratch. Next up our Students learn to make delicious Violet buttercream and use it to layer their mini sponges.
Later in the day our Students work with flower paste to recreate Peggy’s beautiful purple sugar pansies. Our experienced tutor then teaches the class how to expertly dust and steam the petals to make them breathtakingly realistic.
The one day class has proved incredibly popular with our Students so far, with fantastic feedback… ” Dear Peggy, I would like to thank for the purple pansies’ course, it was amazing. I’ve learnt a lot of interesting things. You are very professional. Thank you so much!”
