Join us at the Academy for this very popular class, Basic Figure Making, taught by Zoe Hopkinson from Zoe’s Fancy Cakes. In the class, you will learn how to model two basic figures, one sitting and one standing. Zoe will guide you through the process of making the models, from start to finish and teach you how to achieve correct proportions. You will then be taught how to create simple facial features and create facial expressions, a very useful skill.

Throughout the day Zoe will impart invaluable hints and tips accumulated across many years of experience in the sugarcraft industry. Our Academy staff will also be on hand to provide guidance and assistance should you require it. At the end of the session, we will provide you with a cake box so that you can take your cake creation home with you.  Please note, in this class, you will be creating only the models.

Just like all Renshaw Academy classes, EVERYTHING you need for the day is included in the price. All your food, drink and materials needed for the duration of this class are provided for you. All you do is simply book and turn up. We do the rest!
