Halloween Cupcake Decorating

As my mum is a keen baker and cupcake decorator, when she spotted a session on in the local area to decorate cupcakes she was right on it booking two places for last Sunday. Now I don't ever pretend to be able to bake or decorate cakes very well, but I try my best... As I've never been to anything like this I didn't know what to expect.

The session took place at That Cake's Tea Room in Guisborough, if you are from the North East area you may have heard of them.

For £9 you received four cupcakes to decorate as well as two drinks (two cups of tea for me!). There are four tables in the tea room and they were all full of people ready to decorate their cakes. We were all given a piping bag and asked what colour/flavour icing we would like (although we all ended up having bit of each others as you can see from my cakes!). Then we were let loose with all the lovely decoration pieces we had on our tables as well as fondant, chocolate bones/skulls and sweets from the other table.

It was a lot of fun to get to decorate my cakes as usually mum does all this when she bakes so I never get a chance. I like to think I did well and that all my cakes look at least a little bit halloweeny/scary. If you don't understand what my cakes are from left to right - a ghost, a graveyard, a cockroach and then a pumpkin.

That Cake did a great job running the sessions and I think they kept everyone very happy. After everyone had finished decorating their cakes they took pictures of each and posted them on their facebook page. The person whose cakes get the most likes wins tea and cake for two in That Cake's tea room! 

That Cake have decided to do Christmas cupcake decorating sessions due to the success of the Halloween ones! I would definitely recommend getting yourself booked up. It's something different that gets you out of the house for a couple of hours and who doesn't love cake?!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
