Master the art of delicious, no-compromise vegan baking during this comprehensive Vegan Baking Fundamentals masterclass. You’ll learn the specific tips and tricks, techniques and essential vegan ingredients for baking a light and fluffy vegan sponge and a mouth-watering vegan buttercream.

As well as learning how to bake the perfect vegan sponge, you’ll learn how to cover your cake with a semi-naked vegan buttercream finish, pipe decorative vegan buttercream peaks and make and decorate with edible crystallised flowers, edible petals and other tasty ingredients.

We’ll also take you on a tour of our professional cake design studio and kitchen (conveniently located next to the classroom), as well as meeting Rosalind and the team for a Q&A. Plus there’ll be lots of useful hints and tips to take home, learned and developed over the years.

At the end of the course you’ll receive a Rosalind Miller Cake School Certificate.
