FLAWLESS FONDANT FOR BEGINNERS
TAKING YOU FROM FONDANT FEAR TO FONDANT FUN!
Imagine if you had all the information you needed to create flawless fondant cakes without any of the overwhelm and frustration.
Imagine if you could create fondant covered cakes for your family and friends without worrying about whether it's going to be 'perfect'.
Imagine feeling so confident about using fondant that you were able to take your cakes to the next level.
BECOMING A FONDANT FANATIC
My love of fondant started with my Mum. She took decorating classes when we were growing up and I always loved what she created. And I loved flipping through her many cake books to pick my next birthday cake!
When I came home after finishing university, she'd picked up cake decorating again and I was keen to get involved, helping out wherever I could. Turns out I loved it!
And I wasn't too bad at it either!
Flash forward 9 years and fondant cakes have always been the centre of my business. Yes, I have dabbled in other things but fondant has always been my true love.
Over the past few years, the buttercream cake has been the centre of the cake decorating universe. Especially with the rise of home-baking businesses during the pandemic. They’ve seen the trend and ran with it.
But what about fondant cakes? Along the way they have come to be seen as difficult and frustrating, as well as gaining a reputation for being old news and out of fashion.
Not on my watch!
I'm on a mission to bring back the love of the fondant cake and I want to start by showing you what you can achieve - even if you are a total beginner!
I KNOW YOU FEEL LIKE...
- fondant is tricky and intimidating and you could never make it work for you.
- you want to try something new but feel overwhelmed about where to start.
- you don't want to let your loved ones down by promising a fondant cake and it not being 'perfect'.
- you can't start that dream cake project because you feel like you don't have the skills.
- you don't have the confidence to try again because you have tried in the past and it's never worked for you.

WHY LISTEN TO ME?
I've been working with fondant cakes now for 9 years and during that time I’ve made 100s of fondant covered cakes. It has become my signature style with customers returning to order their fun fondant cakes.
But believe me, I've been where you are. I have screamed in frustration at fondant that just won’t stop ripping and cried when I thought I had a perfectly covered cake but it starts to get sticky or bulge out. And I've been so anxious I couldn't even get started.
I have made all the mistakes, tested all the fondant brands, tried flipping cakes upside down to get that elusive straight edge, taken fondant off to start again, and again….and again.
But I know now what works and I’m excited to be able to share that with you.
“We had such a good afternoon with Vicky, the lesson was well organised, easy to follow and the results looked great even for a complete novice like me! It was all so relaxed and friendly, and the cupcakes tasted as good as they looked. A perfect hen do activity that got everyone involved with no pressure.”
Bethan - in-person class
“Vicky ran a cake decorating session as part of my hen party celebration and it was so much fun. Vicky was very clear in her instructions and what looked complicated soon became clear. We went home with cakes we were very proud of, having laughed lots and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
It really was brilliant.” Ruth - in-person class
