In this one-day workshop, Pastry Chef Jojo Javier will prep you up with basic fondant knowledge and skills, this course aims to give participants confidence in handling simple to advanced level fondant theme cake techniques.

Highlights of the workshop

Participants will be taught how to bake vanilla buttercream cake, and make fondant from scratch. All ingredients used in recipes are locally available. The workshop includes basic tools and molds and cutters and all the ingredients a fondant cake requires. Everybody will be provided with the necessary equipment and ingredients to work with. We understand that beginners may not even know what to purchase and from where to purchase, so we don’t make them run and purchase things, we provide the fondant and other ingredients, as well as the tools, cutters (which participants have an option to buy), during the workshop. At the end of the class participants will get to take home their designed cake.

Workshop participants are also encouraged to select a theme of their own cake. We do this exercise so that the entire batch gets to see different cakes at one stretch and every one can share ideas, help each other and come out with beautifully decorated cakes.
