Masterclass with Mich Turner

Wow, just back from a long weekend in London, where I treated myself to an intensive masterclass in hand painting with Mich Turner of Little Venice Cake Company. What a fabulous experience. From transferring a template to an iced cake to using cocoa butter and food colour dusts to create a paint rather like oil paints everything was clearly explained and demonstrated by Mich herself. My love birds and bumblebees actually looked quite artistic rather than abstract as my paintings have done before! Have a look at my Facebook page for the photos.

I came back with an enormous goody bag – as well as the cake I decorated I had a chocolate cake, icing, marzipan, an apron and the new lustres from the LVCC range. An excellent afternoon, and as it was our wedding anniversary the following day, I persuaded my husband to make a long weekend of it, we visited Buckingham Palace on our anniversary so I could see the Royal Wedding display. After seeing the photos of the cake I was prepared to be under-whelmed but it is so much more stunning in real life – the sugarcraft flowers were beautiful.
