Our First Couture Cupcake Class

Last Sunday we had he great pleasure here at Sugar Rush, of spending our day with 9 amazing ladies. Some new faces, some regular students; all excited to expand their cake decorating skills with our new Couture Cupcake class. 

Vanilla cupcakes, soft pink icing, lots of sugar, and big smiles. Pair that with a few coffees, a cupcake lunch, and you have yourself the perfect girly day.

This class is all about pearls, lace, bows, and shimmer. We start with the fondant details, so they have the afternoon to dry. The girls loved making the lace flowers, everyone creating different little blossoms to make it their own. The pearls were lots of fun, especially dusting the gold shimmer - somehow I think there was more on hands than anything else!!

After our "healthy" lunch, we got working on those fondant cupcakes. The concentration level went up quite considerably for the black piped dots; but everyone did incredibly well. Especially considering some girls had never held a piping bag in their lives. So proud!

These classes will be running once a month or so, please see our course schedule for more details.

Thank you to every one of our students for making this first Couture Class such a success. We could not be happier with the day, and your amazing creations. We love the little personal touches you made to your sweets, and can't wait to see more creations as you grow as cake artists!!
