Our Master Class was showing us how to make letters for use on cakes or other baked items such as cookies.

Using royal icing and piping the outline of a letter of shape then flooding it with a slightly runnier royal icing can create sturdy lettering and shapes that will then peel off greaseproof paper and attach to a cake.

The Cake Man was happy to answer many questions and we all enjoyed this extra part to our cake club. He also showed some of us how to make small piping bags out of greaseproof paper.
