HOW TO DECORATE CAKES WITH STEVEN CARTER-BAILEY

Keen bakers who want to add a little more flair to their presentation will be able to pick up a host of decoration tips from Great British Bake Off finalist Steven Carter Bailey. 

Anyone who watched last year's Bake Off will have been wow-ed by Steven's ability to create the most stunning illusion cakes and original designs. His efforts were often rewarded with the coveted 'Hollywood Handshake'.

In his Leiths class, you will start by putting together a basic sponge, along with honeycomb and a vanilla bean pod Swiss meringue buttercream. As your creations cool, Steven will show you how to construct a chequerboard cake and decorate it in three different styles.

You’ll then put your new skills to the test by decorating your own cake to take home using one of the three techniques, with additional coaching and advice from Steven as you go.

The exact details for Steven's November class will be released closer to the time.

Typical recipes/skills covered in the past include:

  • Chocolate Frangelico sponge with vanilla bean pod Swiss meringue buttercream filling
  • Multi-toned streaking decoration
  • Chocolate drip cake with honeycomb crunch
  • Ombré ruffle cake decoration 

Please note, recipes and ingredients may change.
