I was totally amazed at his cakes and his style and was so excited to be able to get to one of his courses. Liverpool is a long drive over 5 hrs from home, so it was something I thought I wouldn't get to do. So I was so happy when my husband said he would buy me a day for Christmas. There were lots to pick from but knowing my Royal icing love, I think you can guess I went with that.
I was a little nervous but I need not have worried at all, David and Ed who run the classes were delightful. Such a kind gentlemen it really made you feel relaxed and happy.
We started by hearing where everyone was from and we had people from all over but the lady from Hong Kong was the one that was a long way from home . We then moved on to talk about Royal icing and how to mix for what you need. At each stage we got the chance to see what to look for, when mixing.
We then got to do our own cakes and every second David and Ed were there to help or offer anything you needed. Everything was done to make sure you got the best from the day and more important to be happy and relaxed. I think I really learnt a huge amount, I felt full of confidence and as I learnt more and more. David is a totally wonderful artist and the skill in his work is huge. I was totally in love with his cakes and I would like to share but I feel unless David said yes I would not put it on the blog as I know how careful he has to be., but you will find some pictures of his work on his web site.
If you can get to Liverpool when David is around and you love to cake decorate I'd say get there ASAP.
I can honestly say it was the best day I have had in a long time and I really need to save so I can go again. So If David and Ed read this I would like to say a huge huge thanks. It truly was my best ever day and I am going to save like mad for my next one. I am ending with my cake
