Group & Corporate Workshop


In our one-on-one private workshops you will have the full attention of one of the LionHeart Gurls. Under the watchful eye of either Karmen or Nikki you will learn to navigate the world Swiss meringue buttercream in a relaxed environment where you are encouraged to ask as many questions as you like.

Date & time: pre-selected date that suits both parties
Venue: The LionHeart Studio (37 Durham Avenue, Woodstock, Cape Town), alternatively we can discuss the use of another venue should it be required
Skill level: Beginner to intermediate (advisable to have basic cake decorating knowledge – no beginners)
Class size:

  • Cape Town: minumum 3 pax, maximum 12 pax (if using our studio in Salt River)
  • Johanesburg: minumum & maximum 18 pax (if you are able to offer a larger venue than what we usually use we can discuss the class size)


Ultimately, the pricing would depend on the structure of the day, venue and anything that needs to be done by our team over and above the basic course outline listed below. As a starting point for a basic cake decorating workshop of 5 hours you are looking at roughly R2450 per person. This price is subject to change as it is also based off of the size of the group.
