A friend from the working mum’s group who works at Brentwood School

asked me to come to her Gifted and Talented set at Brentwood School to teach them about sugarpaste and buttercream swirls.

I made a few cakes beforehand to show them what they could do.

A spring theme of daffodils, chicks and eggs and butterflies all taken next to the only spring flowers we have in the garden!

I also made a sheep – yes it is a sheep and ended up giving it away as the runner up prize for the best decorated cupcake.

Here are the kids and teachers getting stuck into making the sugarpaste roses.

The kids also learnt how to make buttercream swirls and rose swirls.

The whole class (well most of them) with their decorated cakes. Wonderful!
