The super talented Marion Frost from Patchwork Cutters will be returning to the Academy to teach you how to make this adorable Christmas themed Toy Box cake filled with three characters. She will teach you a range of skills from covering a dummy cake to achieve a professional finish, to making intricate 3D figures. Marion will demonstrate how the skills you will learn can be transferred onto cakes for different seasons or occasions, including how to make just a few changes for a comical adults cake. Throughout the day Marion 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, some creations that are made using real cake will be heavier than those created using a polystyrene dummy so please take this into consideration when making your travel arrangements.

There’s no hassle when you book onto a Renshaw Academy course as everything you need for the day is included. We’ll provide all of your materials, equipment, food, and drink so all you have to do is arrive and decorate!
