Here at Victoria’s Kitchen we are very excited to share that the award winning cake artist Dominique of Poppy Pickering is coming to our Surrey studio to teach two days of classes.

Dominique’s wedding cakes and style are instantly recognisable, and we are thrilled that she is willing to share her secrets with our students. Poppy Pickering are proud to have been awarded NATIONAL Wedding Cake Designer of the Year, 2016 of the prestigious The Wedding Industry Awards along with Winner of the North East Wedding Awards for Best Wedding cake Designer 2016 and in 2018. They are regularly featured in many leading bridal publications and work alongside some of the Industry’s best wedding suppliers.

In this class you will learn how to create sharp edges on dummy tiers, create a marble iced effect and had paint some matching gold foliage detail. We will then make a David Austin juliet rose, a ranunculus, a camellia, pulled flowers, berries and various leaves. We will then apply metallic leaf and create a stripe effect. Dominique will then show you how to tape, dust and arrange the flowers onto the hoop and how to attach.

It’s going to be a showstopper of a piece and we can’t wait to host it here in Surrey.
