Faircake Busy Baker Series: Cupcake Baking and Decorating

This afternoon I had the pleasure of attending a 3 hour workshop taught by Shikhita in her very own cupcake related school/business called Faircake. She is based in the heart of Greenwich and her workshop has such an inspirational feel to it, Shikhita also adds humour to the class which makes it even more enjoyable! The lesson comprised of learning how to make little sugar fondant decorations, baking the cupcake itself and how to make a creamy, delicious frosting (with a few sneaky tricks and tips that she so gratefully shared with us). I thought I’d share some pictures of how my cupcakes turned out as the afternoon was fuelled with such fun and cheer, however as I left the workshop I found myself with a £40 parking fine…and then when I got home I stupidely stacked the boxes together at which they decided to fall straight onto their cupcakey faces…resulting in squashed cupcakes. Because of this awful misfortune I have only photographed the ones that were ever so slightly ruined! You can book classes on her website ( and I strongly recommend you do if you’re interested in learning the art of baking these little treasures.
