Tis the season to Cake & Sip
Why paint & sip when you can cake & sip?
Thanks to Asha “The Flour Girl” Atkinson, now you can decorate your cake and eat it too! The baker — who introduced the concept to The Rock last December, and has since hosted one other event — returned with the third iteration on Tuesday, December 19 at Sora Japanese Cuisine & Urban Lounge, Progressive Shopping Centre.
Atkinson led a fun interactive experience where ‘students’ — some of them repeat subscribers from last December’s event — were introduced to the art of cake decorating.
All 21 participants had, days before the event, received a link to choose which cake design they wanted to re-create. And while they found the Santa cakes cute, the majority agreed that the ‘Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer’ cake was worth the challenge.
Participants pulled up the image on their phones, but were encouraged to allow creativity to reign, using the reference only as a guide. Working with a 5″ cake with crumb coating, Atkinson guided the students through a hands-on session on how to frost and decorate a cake for professional results.
By the end of the workshop, participants had beautifully decorated reindeer cakes ready for the Christmas festivities.
