Classes can make you a cake whiz

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

IF YOU’VE ever wanted to make a cake that’s fit for a glossy mag­a­zine cover, here’s your chance.

Epi­cure Home­wares is host­ing cake-dec­o­rat­ing classes, giv­ing bak­ers the chance to go from kitchen­clue­less to cake-whiz.

The classes will give a stepby-step tu­to­rial on the ba­sics of mak­ing your cake a master­piece and could even put you on the road to be­com­ing a qual­i­fied dessert chef.

“They get a cer­tifi­cate for each course, and that helps with re­sumes or ad­vanced cour­ses they want to do if they want to go else­where,” Epi­cure Home­wares owner Cathy Sel­man said.

“And see, if they want to go to places like Planet Cake – all those high-end cake schools – you have to have some­thing like this to get in the door.”

The classes are prov­ing a big hit, with peo­ple com­ing from out­side the re­gion.

“We’ve got a lady from Mackay com­ing in, there’s a chef from Hamil­ton Is­land com­ing across, a lady from out the back of Rocky (and) heaps from Townsville,” Ms Sel­man said.

All course par­tic­i­pants re­ceive their own cake-dec­o­rat­ing kit and man­ual.

Com­ing soon will also be kids’ cooking classes, small­group cake classes and cheese-mak­ing classes.
