Honeycomb Fault Line Cake $300

We are all a-buzz with the fault line cake trend and we think this one is the bee's knees.  Our super chic black ganache fault line reveals golden honeycomb oozing with sweet honey as the bees are busy at work to share their hidden treasure with you.

In this full day class you will learn how to create a 2 tier, double barrel cake, featuring the fault line effect, filled with black ganache and decorated in our elegant golden bumblebee theme.  Students can choose to customise their designs with different golds, coppers etc and top tier options.  Why not team it up with one of the hexagon number acrylic toppers from Sandra Dillon Design that we sell at Latorta!! 

The class is ideal for teens, beginners and intermediate cake decorators - we take you step by step through every stage.

The class runs from 9am and we expect to finish around 4pm, although finish times may vary depending on the speed of the group.  


** Please note:  our courses are designed for adults, however we understand that many children and teenagers desire to learn the art of cake decorating.  The Our Fault Line cake class can be attended by a teenager (12-16 years/high school years 7-10) if they are accompanied by a supervising/assisting adult.  The adult is required to assist during those tasks that require larger hands or a little extra muscle (ie rolling of fondant) and to help with social comfort.  One workstation with 2 chairs is provided and 1 cake is created by the teenager (with assistance from the accompany adult).  Lunch and refreshments are provided for both participants.   The additional $20 fee covers the additional person for catering purposes.   Please select "Teenager with Accompanying Adult" in the top part of the booking form under "1. Options".  Teenagers over the age of 16 (high school year 11+12)  can register for a class as an 'adult' and do not need to be accompanied.
