About this course

This creative techniques qualification from City and Guilds has been designed for students who are interested in developing skills in cake decoration as a vocational study.

The course requires a display of six co-ordinated mini cakes, using a minimum of two different shaped cakes decorated in sugarpaste and displayed on a sugarpasted board.

You will sample practical skills of sugarpaste techniques, relating to the criteria of this unit, for example: colouring sugarpaste, covering mini cakes, texturing sugarpaste by impression of food safe tools, painting, inlay and individual hand moulded shapes.

Please note this is not a general beginner’s cake decorating course, although many basic techniques will be explored.

In addition to the above a practical assessment is to be completed to a chosen theme, to include researching and developing simple design ideas for use on the sugarpasted cakes, collating and presenting research using visual and written evidence. This may include sketches, collages and colour palettes for design ideas to show the use of colour line and texture. There is no formal written examination.

Approximately 2 hours homework per week will be required to complete this award.
