Our motto is "Fresh Baked" and from scratch. There's no such thing as skinny cupcakes and there's no such thing as baking from packet mix. We believe in tasty, fluffy, indulgent and gorgeous looking cupcakes because it makes people happy. There's an amazing feeling that comes with being able to bring a box of cupcakes to a party and letting them know that you baked them yourself - that's what got our Founder, Sheryl, hooked onto baking in the first place. Now we want to share that experience with you!

**Exciting News!** Founder of Cupcake Central, Sheryl Thai, will be making a special appearance running these Masterclasses with Pastry Chef Vinny in months March and April 2017. So book in quick as it's only for these two months as our Jacqueline our workshop instructor is away on break.

Whether you're an avid home cupcake baker or have never even baked in your life, this Cupcake Baking & Decorating Masterclass is for you. Our Workshop Facilitators will be teaching you the basics of baking as well as professional tips and tricks that we use in our kitchens to make baking a breeze and fun. 

Learn the secrets on how to bake cupcakes and decorate them like a professional for your next party, social gathering or even just for yourself. We promise that you'll be walking away from the class just a little bit chuffed on how well you've done (no seriously!).

Cupcake baking & decorating class was a really good experience and I would definitely recommend this course for others who would like to improve their cupcake decorating skills. Course is also suitable for the beginners. Great team, great baking tips, great afternoon. Thank you!

This was a great cupcake making and decorating class. I really liked all the little tips and tricks.

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent masterclass in the art of cupcake making. The two ladies who ran the class were enthusiastic about their cupcakes and were happy to share their secrets with the rest of us. I was one of 8 people and this number was perfect. We fit around the table with no problems. We all had a turn in adding ingredients as well as the opportunity to make fondant decorations. Once our fondant decorations were finished, we were all treated to a beverage from the shop. Our cupcakes were cooled by this stage and we were shown how to pipe onto our cupcakes. We all enthusiastically piped our wonderful designs on our cupcakes. These were then boxed ready to take home. It is a 3 hour class, however we were so busy, time just flew right by. Hearing the story about how the shop started was also very interesting. It goes to show that a dream starts somewhere, sometimes as simply as our own home kitchen. Thank you very much for sharing your dream with us xx
