I attended a cupcake class over the weekend with my fellow blogger friend Faaiza from modest munchy . We spent 2 1/2 playing with fondant and buttercream and decorating cupcakes with our instructor Sumayya from Mio cupcakes . I’ve recently taken a big liking to buttercream because of how easy it is to make, apply and store and this was a great class because we used butercream for all our cupcakes and decorated them with little fondant decos. We made little butterflies and bows, blossoms and roses and of course learnt quick and easy techniques on how to turn plain-looking cupcakes into a work of art. Here are our decos ready to place on our cupcakes:
Sumayya was a fantastic and very patient instructor the entire time and made sure that every student was happy with the end results.
I’ve done a cupcake class before with Whimsical Cakehouse (that’s where my hobby first started) and we used ganache and covered the cupcakes with fondant before decorating it. So now that I’ve done both classes and learnt how to use both types of toppings, I know I have plenty of new ideas to try out for the next few months. Watch this space for more cupcakes! 🙂
Thank you Sumayya for the enjoyable class! 🙂
