Decorating Basics Course
The Wilton Decorating Basics course has been designed to teach the beginner cake decorator the basics of cake preparation and decoration techniques, it also offers an experienced decorator the opportunity to brush up on some basic skills. The Decorating Basics course is a pre-requisite to doing the other Wilton courses.
Each Decorating Basics course runs for 4 weeks and each session will be 2 hours. Our course fee includes a student kit, booklet and some items you will need to complete the course in a basic way (you will need to bring cakes, cookies etc to decorate), all of which is yours to keep.
