The Complete Decorated Wedding Cake Course is our definitive wedding cake course, covering everything you need to know to make a professional wedding cake from start to finish. Our fully comprehensive course is suitable for budding cake-makers starting a business; to more experienced cake-makers looking to improve their skills; and anyone in need of hands-on skills and techniques.
During the class you’ll make a three tiered version of this elaborate floral cake, decorated in your own unique take on our signature ‘wildflowers’ style. You’ll learn every step in creating a professionally finished cake, including; baking, layering and filling; ganaching and flawless covering; how to stack your cake securely; a masterclass in a variety of beautiful sugar flowers; and finally designing, arranging and decorating your own cake with your sugar flowers.
The flowers are taught in our signature style and the skills and techniques you will learn can also be used for different varieties of sugar flowers and cake designs.
You’ll leave the class with a blueprint for professional wedding cake making, as well developing your own artistic flair and inspiration for creating your own unique designs.
On top of all this, you’ll take 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. Rosalind will be ready to answer your burning questions, divulging her secret skills and tricks of the trade developed over a decade of cake decorating and 20+ years of design training.
At the end of the Rosalind Miller certified course you’ll receive a Rosalind Miller The Studio Certificate of Excellence in Tiered Cake Making & Design.
