Beginners fondant crafting

Wakefield Baptist Church, Belle Isle Avenue, Wakefield, WF1 5JY

Face to Face Discovery College Courses (for 16-25 year olds)

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Have you ever thought about trying something a little different? Perhaps a craft that you get to eat afterwards?!? The why not join our self-taught fondant icing modeler and crafter Debra, and her volunteers, in a relaxed and fun environment to learn the basics of fondant crafting in this four-week beginners course? You even get to take home your crafted fondant to show off to your friends and family (or eat if you’re like some of us and you like the icing more than the cake!).

During the first two weeks, you’ll learn the basics of fondant modelling and will make some cake-topping flowers. As you hone your skills, the group will move on to making fondant decorations fit for Hallowe’en and Christmas. Who knows, maybe you’ll decorate your own confectionary for Hallowe’en or Christmas cake this year?

As this course is a food-related course, it is incredibly important that you inform a member of the College team before attending if you have any allergies or intolerances. You will also need to bring a large enough container to take your fondant creations home with you each week. Due to current social distancing and equipment sharing guidance, there are limited places available for this course.

Please ensure you let the College know at the time of booking if you have any dexterity issues or other concerns around using smaller pieces of equipment. Our crafting sessions often use equipment that may be more challenging to use with dexterity issues (such as pencils, pastels, sewing equipment or paintbrushes) and if informed in advance, we are able to make our sessions fully accessible for those with additional crafting support needs.
