Guest Tutor: Marianne Stewart - Vegan Buttercream Cake Class


Monday 21st October 2019 10am - 3:30pm

Victoria’s Kitchen is thrilled to welcome Nourish Cakes author & free-from baking expert Marianne Stewart to our list of fabulous Guest Tutors. Spend the day with her and learn how to bake & decorate a beautiful vegan buttercream layer cake.

Marianne will take you through the essential steps for vegan baking and show you how to use plant-based ingredients for top results. You will learn how to bake the perfect vegan chocolate sponge, how to make a simple, not-too-sweet vegan buttercream, use real fruit raspberry powder to flavour, and then trim and layer the sponges to create a professionally-finished cake. Marianne will show you how to make a vegan drip ganache and take you through some simple piping techniques to finish off your cakes, which you will top with some gorgeous organic edible flowers.
