The Flying Pig Cake Emporium - Calne (near Chippenham)Love to Learn? The popularity of programmes such as The Great British Bake Off has increased the interest in learning to bake and decorate cakes. At The Flying Pig Cake Emporium regular classes take place for children, teenagers and adults. These include absolute beginners, cookie decorating, vintage cupcakes, cute animals, baby shower themed, seasonal such as Easter and Valentines, adult and child cupcake decorating and sugar craft. There is something for everyone and small groups ensure a personal experience in a relaxed environment. All materials are provided. Parties are also very popular where participants get the chance to decorate cupcakes. Students can let their creative juices flow with a wide variety of themes to delight and dazzle. Children attending also receive a personalised certificate of achievement. Parties are ideal for children’s birthdays, hen nights or baby showers and the cake decorations can be themed to whatever the occasion may be. Annie Drew from The Flying Pig Cake Emporium said, ‘Our classes and parties are a great way to try something creative without having to invest too much time or money in something you may never have tried. Many people are surprised at how relaxing they are and the children love to learn. People get to take away their own personally decorated cupcakes to enjoy or give as a gift’. Details of classes can be found on The Flying Pig Cake Emporium website or via their Facebook page. The next class is in August 2016. Book early to avoid disappointment!
