Private Workshops

In our one-on-one private workshops you will have the full attention of one of the LionHeart Gurls. Under their watchful eye 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 for a half- or full-day in the LionHeart kitchen
Venue: 37 Durham Avenue, Woodstock, Cape Town
Skill level: Beginner to intermediate

Pricing*:
Half-day (4 hours): R3650
Full-day (8 hours): R6250

*Subject to change depending on your final list of what you want to learn – as a standard, you will learn how to make Swiss meringue buttercream, fully frosting a cake using it as well as achieving sharp edges on your cake. If you have previously covered this part with us in another workshop we can always leave this out and cover another technique, however if you have never worked with SMBC we will have to cover this.

Please note:

  • we only work with Swiss meringue buttercream
  • we do not offer baking classes at this stage and private sessions will be focused on cake decorating techniques

 

What will be provided?

  • Cake decorating equipment and tools, cake sponges, frosting, cake decorations and an apron (these are yours to use for the day but please leave it behind at the end of the class)
  • Tea and coffee to get you started with a lunch break half-way through the day (lunch offered for full-day students only)

You will take home:

  • A booklet with cake transportation and decorating theory covered in the workshop – this will be sent to you in PDF format beforehand
  • Your beautifully frosted and decorated creation

What to wear?

We will be supplying a full­-length apron but wear comfy clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting full of frosting.

WE'LL BE BACK!
