What to expect during the course?
Paul always starts the course with everyone ganaching a double barrelled 8″ round cake then covering the cake to achieve a sharp edged finish. This is the fundamental key building block for any great wedding cake.
This cake can then be used as part of one of your two designs, but you can keep it completely separate if you prefer. To maximise your time with design and learning new decorations, most students then prefer to use dummies as they are quicker to cover and easier to carry at the end of the week.
However, there will be plenty of real cake available if you prefer, but the covering and ganaching time may restrict the design a little with time to consider. Paul is always keen that everyone pushes their boundaries and it’s an amazing sight with 16 bespoke designs on show at the end of the week. The magic really happens as everyone is not only learning their two new designs, but passively learning rom the other designs being created around them.
The classes are always great fun and with everyone under one roof, there will be some great friendships born from the course.

Strathardle Lodge is based in the village of Kirkmichael, Perthshire.
It is just 20 mins from Pitlochry, which is served by the main London to Inverness train line, with regular services from both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Kirkmichael is a tranquil escape, which has a huge heritage and history on the door step. Balmoral, Glenshee ski resort and whisky tours are all within easy reach. Located on the Cateran Trail, it is at the centre of many picture postcard paths and cycling routes.
Strathardle Lodge has 9 en-suite guest rooms providing bed and breakfast. Alternatively there are a number of accommodation options close by.
You can check out all the Rooms & Suites at STRATHARDLE LODGE.
Accommodation has been reserved for attendees so you need to book directly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
David will be in touch once your course booking has been confirmed with your choice of accommodation.
Lunch will be provided as part of the course. We will be in touch a week before the course starts to ask if there are any special dietary considerations.
The Kirkmichael hotel is just a 500m walk into the village, where an extensive menu is served. If you don’t fancy going out, then the former public bar at Strathardle Lodge has a selection of snacks and microwave meals from our honesty bar area.
Its a great place to unwind in front of the open fire and relax into the night.
