Magical 3D Unicorn Cake
Amaze your friends and family with this adorable 3D unicorn cake (all cake inside!). This 1-day class focuses on introducing students to cake carving and basic cake structure with lots of techniques to learn. Students will go home with an adorable cake that serves approximately 20-25 people. The techniques and structure used for this class can easily be transferred to a range of other sitting 3D cakes – like a teddy bear, mouse, horse, fox, dog or cat – the possibilities are endless!
No prior cake carving experience is necessary but it is highly recommended that students have experience working with fondant.
Class runs from 9am to 5pm and lunch is provided.
- Cake structure – working out how and what to use to ensure it is stable
- Creating stable parts protruding from the cake (with this project it is the tail but the same techniques can be used for arms)
- Cake carving and ratios
- Ganaching and smoothing fondant over 3D cakes
- Marbling fondant and painting in gold
What to Bring
Just bring yourself, some closed-toe shoes, and a camera (if you want!). Lunch, snacks, and tea/coffee will be provided.

Buses run along nearby streets but we’d recommend taking the train if you need to carry your cake back.
Uber is more reliable than taxis in our area especially if travelling a short distance.
We are a short drive from the airport but traffic can be heavy and classes can run overtime depending on various factors. Please take this into account if you need to book a flight. If you need a hotel recommendation please email us for more information.
If you are travelling, we may be able to offer assistance and pickup from the airport, local hotels, or the station. Please inquire before making any plans if you think this will be necessary as we cannot guarantee it in all cases.
