In this 4 week floral workshop course, students will learn how to make a number of beautiful sugar flowers, including the over-sized Open Peony (with stamens) and stunning open roses. Other flowers such as gerberas, sweet peas and hydrangea will be created. Corresponding buds and leaves will also be covered where appropriate. During the course, students will use modelling techniques to make flower centers, and then use cutters, veiners and specific techniques to create buds, leaves, and the many wired petals needed to form their large blooms. Once all of the components are dry, students will also learn colouring and dusting techniques, as well as taping, assembling, and finishing touches to complete their flowers.

On booking the course, we will send through more details about each weeks class. We provide general equipment for all of our classes but edibles must be brought to class by yourselves i.e.  cakes, sugar paste, marzipan and flower paste.  You will also need to bring boards, boxes, ribbons and dowels.  A list will be given for each weeks class requirements at the beginning of the course so that you can prepare.  Everything needed can be pre-ordered at our shop (5% discount will be applied) and it can all be ready for you at the start of your class if this is easier for you. Freshly baked Victoria Sponge cakes can also be pre-ordered for use at our classes if you don’t feel like baking them yourself!





Welcome to Sugarbliss Cake Decorating Classes, where nyree regular hosts classes throughout the year for Kids and beginners who want to learn the basic skills of cake decoration, to advanced classes for those who want to enhance and learn new skills in cake decoration. At Sugarbliss we have classes which cater for all skill levels that will enhance and inspire you.


Following requests over the years to Sugarbliss Cake Company for cake classes, we have created project-based classes to suit a variety of proficiency levels, from those wishing to start a career in cakes, to those looking for a fun and enriching day out.


Classes are led throughout the year by Nyree and students can enroll in an intimate three day ‘Professional Tiered Wedding Cake’ master class and learn how to ice the perfect cake, securely stack and assemble tiers and pipe exquisite spring flowers, or may prefer to take a fun one day ‘Couture Cookies’ class with friends or colleagues and create their own chic collection of iced cookie treats to take home. Our evening 1-2 hour classes are designed for those who can not join a project led class. 


At Sugarbliss we have a class to suit everyone. To find out more about our cake classes, schedule or to enroll on our next course date please contact us on 01564 774 223 or complete the contact form here.
