Our cupcake class is divided into a baking portion, a decoration portion and a piping portion. Ewa Feix will also be there to answer all your questions and share her tips and tricks throughout the course when it comes to baking and sugar crafting.
This is a great baking focused class where you get to bake cupcakes and buttercream from scratch.
Under the tuition of Ewa Feix you will learn:
– an easy cupcake recipe that works every time
– a buttercream recipe that is the perfect complement to the cupcakes (and not too sweet)
– how to make decorations using fondant and professional cutters
– how to make the perfect swirl using professional piping tips
– how to work with fondant to make little edible flowers
Feel free to bring an apron or even get one printed for the bride's special day. Bring a notebook and pen and you are welcome to take pictures throughout the class. You will be provided with a box for your completed cupcakes but you can always bring a bag for easier transport back.
We are looking forward to hear from you! If you are interested in having your Event with us you can send your request here.
The maximum amount of participants is 11 for which we have seating. There is standing room for 12 participants.
The minimum amount of participants to run a private class is 4 participants.
It depends how fully booked we are. Ideally you should book a minimum of 4-5 months in advance of your event date. Our course schedule is available online (link) so you can see which dates are already taken well in advance. A nice idea if you see that your event date is already booked out on a Saturday or Sunday, try to request a Friday evening slot.
Almost all of our private events take place at our location in Waldems which is great because you don’t have to do the dishes when you are done!
We do also offer courses on location whether directly at your home or in a party location. We bring all the ingredients and materials in large transport boxes, do a complete set up and then we bake together. Please note that there are additional costs for travel and set up time to consider when booking outside of the Waldems location.
Events usually take place on Saturdays and Sundays however a great under-booked but just as fun time slot is Friday evenings!
There are two main options for course durations. There is the shorter course which is 2,5 hours long and includes small amounts of baking and is more focused on decoration and putting desserts together. The other option is a 4-hour course. Courses which run 4 hours have a break with complimentary finger food. This usually includes pizza or sandwiches or salads as well as a fruit platter. During the 4 hours, the participants are involved in the whole baking process. The shorter option is designed as a quick and easy part of a bigger itinerary and the longer option is for the real baking enthusiast who wants to spend as much time baking as possible.
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring decorations such as balloons or banners. Sparkling wine is provided by your hostEwaFeix but you are more than welcome to bring your own as well.
Yes, we have a ramp to the bakery. Please let us know in advance so that we can inform you about the seating possibilities.
The minimum age for participants is 14 years old. The classes are fast paced and in larger group settings. Usually it is nice for the 14 year old to come with a friend or adult so they have someone to connect with during the class as other participants often also come with partners. For 13 and 12 year olds, a parent is required.
Participants can bring a notepad and a pen for taking notes. Participants can bring their own apron to the event. For baking events, it is always a nice touch when the party organizer provides matching aprons for everyone. Boxes are provided for the freshly baked goodies however you can also bring a large flat bottomed bag for easier transport.
No, all courses are designed for first time bakers to enjoy. There is always a mixture of foundational baking basics and more advanced techniques on Das Cupcake courses.
