Sara, the girl who was demonstrating, runs her own business, the Happy Cupcake Kitchen, in her spare time, and as well as providing cupcakes for people and events, runs classes too. She was very friendly and natural and a good teacher.
She showed us how to pipe a twirl and then how to pipe it so it looks like a rose.
Then she made another rose but this time using fondant icing. And then it was our turn. She provided each of us with a cupcake, the piping bag and icing and told us to be confident!
Not bad for a first attempt during an hour-long workshop.
