Cup Cake Classes in Clapham Junction

Fancy making these?

Well I didn’t bake the cakes, they were already prebaked, but I did design and create all toppings. I can now say I feel more confident piping icing, plus everyone at work seemed to enjoy them.

The cup cake class, was held on a Sunday afternoon at the Rafayel Hotel, (Near Clapham Junction) by Baketique, which is the brain child of Michelle Husserl, Check out the link for more information, Baketique The next cake sessions take place on November 7th and 21st
Sadly I went by myself and it really is a girly day out, a glass of champagne is waiting of which I downed two as there were a couple of no shows, it would be a waste to leave it.

The Critic Talks

Overall pleasant, but expensive for what you receive. I would have loved to bake my own cakes, learnt how to make the right icing consistency and then iced my cakes.
However, it is a very nice gift.

The start of SW Craft Club

I’m new to blogging, I’m sure you will start to see that writing isn’t really my forte, but I can assure you that craft is. Over the last week, I’ve been scouring the internet looking for craft or cookery courses taking place in South London. It was mostly a depressing internet search, with over half of the courses taking place in East or North London. My search had bought up a lot of out of date information but occasionally a glimmer of light would shine down and I’d find a little gem of a course, group or company, with an event taking place in South London and had I not searched I would now be trekking to the east to get my crafty fix.
Don’t get me wrong, this blog is not about us versus them. I love East London as much as the next person; Curtain Road, Hoxton Square & Brick Lane are little treats after work or at weekends, however the commute to get there and back in my mind is a mission, especially after a glass of wine or two. So, because of the distance it really is a treat and my desire to stay local; to go out locally and discover more of what is going on around me and what is locally growing.  
To put it frankly crafts/ craft courses in South London are lacking and I feel it is my South Londoner duty to bring craft awareness south of the river.
This blog is going to be a little slow to begin with, but don’t you worry, you won’t always be hearing from me, I’ll be roping my friends in to lend a writing hand. However this blog is going to be stagnant unless I hear from anyone who wants to be part of the club. I welcome your suggestions, comments and contributions.

I look forward to hearing from you
