The Cocoa Box – Cupcake decorating class

I bought this cupcake class as a present for my mum and I for Christmas last year. We only just got round to actually doing it but it was well worth the wait! The class is run by a company called The Cocoa Box and was held at the Thistle Barbican hotel in London.
The first part of the class was a hands on demonstration on how to create pretty bows, roses and cupcakes from sugar paste  You also learnt different ways of applying fondant, butter cream and frosting icing to cakes, using cutlery and piping bags. In the remaining time you were free to decorate your cupcakes as you wished.
Here are my cupcakes:
