     Basics Foundation - (Basics 101 to 103 & Tutorials) - Intensive Week

    Prerequisites: None

    Workshop Overview:

    Basics Foundation is designed to teach all the basic, introductory skills required to embark on a decorating career, in a five day, intensive workshop. Students will learn to set up and cover the round, square and two tier cakes, through the completion of Basics 101 to 103, while being fully immersed in the Planet Cake kitchen. Smaller student numbers (workshops are limited to a maximum of ten students) combined with the intensive nature of the week, allow students to reinforce learning outcomes from the previous day, improving the likelihood of retaining knowledge while enjoying the benefits of a more intimate environment. In addition to the Basics 101, 102 and 103 learning outcomes, students will engage in hands-on tutorials which include baking, animal modeling and piping.

    For further information on lay by options, please contact the Planet Cake office directly on (02) 9810 3843.
