Please note: An additional cost of $50 for each enrollee for specialist equipment, specific to this class, is due to the tutor at the first session. This must be paid in cash. All kits are discounted to warehouse prices. The kit includes piping tips, piping bags, couplers, a cake board, icing for week 1, a cake scraper and consumables.

Each student will need their own set of equipment as, with the time constraints of the class, it is not possible to share. In addition to your kit you will need to supply 12 cupcakes for week 2, an 8” or 20cm square cake in week 4. You will also need to bring buttercream icing in weeks 2 4. A recipe will be provided in week 1. Your icing for week 1 will be provided.
