Warwick mums whip it good for future business success
WARWICK mothers whipped their cake decorating skills into shape at Warwick's inaugural Artisan Cake and Couture class at the Country Women's Association on Saturday.
The class was filled with mother and daughter teams bonding over tricky rose-shaped fondants and intricately detailed lavender frosting.
Attendee Jacqui Wenmoth hopes skills learned in class will help her to develop her own small business.
"I started making cakes for my daughter with butter cream and grenache,” she said.
"It was just a hobby but now I've expanded to Instagram and Facebook.
"Fondant was never by forte so I'm learning new skills that I can hopefully use to do a couple of weddings.”
If the educational classes prove popular in the Rose City, internationally trained cake decorator Deborah Sheather plans to open something more permanent which would be a welcome boost to the local economy.
Fellow attendee Natalie Cockram said she just looked forward to impressing her daughter next time a birthday rolled around.
"I've never created anything like this before,” she said.
"I'm learning so many tips and tricks.”
Mother-daughter team Rebecca and Mackealie Moore used the sticky situation as a bonding activity.
"It's good to have the time together,” Mrs Moore said.
"I'm not crafty at all but the instructions have been really easy to follow and I'm amazed with what we've made!”
