Description

Having become fascinated with the art of patisserie in his native France from the age of ten, Eric Lanlard has gone on to become one of Europe's most celebrated pastry chefs. Moving to the UK in 1989, Eric was recruited by multi-Michelin star chefs Albert and Michel Roux - and within two years became head pastry chef.

Since going into business for himself, Eric Lanlard has baked cakes for the likes of Madonna, Claudia Schiffer, Liz Hurley and Elton John from his cake emporium in South West London, Cake Boy. He has appeared on hit television programmes such as "The Great British Bake Off", "Masterchef " and "This Morning" and even landed two TV shows of his own, most recently Channel 4's "Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard".

This cupcake decorating masterclass is entirely private - whether it's just for two or for the whole ten people.

In this informal, hands-on experience with Eric himself at his Cake Boy boutique, Eric will share his passion for pastry and cakes, beginning with a brief talk on the history of the quintessential British staple, the cupcake.

You'll then have the chance to get your hands dirty. Eric will teach you how to 'top' the perfect cupcake; mastering buttercream icing with various paste colours and getting the creative juices flowing with numerous decadent decorations.

Each person will finish with 12 of their personally decorated cupcakes to take home, as well as a Cake Boy apron.

To round-off this cupcake decorating experience, the team at Cake Boy will serve an afternoon tea with a twist. Enjoy a selection of petit pains, mini croissants and pastries, including macaroons and fruit tarts, and toast to a day well spent with a glass of champagne each (or non-alcoholic alternative is desired).

Reviews

  • Wonderful Day

    We had a wonderful day with Eric. We were well looked after and my team really enjoyed themselves. I have quite a mixed team and some of the men in the team weren't expecting to enjoy it that much but they said they had a brilliant time.

    Wonderful Day Out

    The name above says it all. Eric Lanlard has created this experience to give you the opportunity to learn about his creations and this is exactly what you get to do.
    Eric was lovely and his attention to detail is second to none.
    As for the cakes - in a word 'Divine'.
    You won't be disappointed with a visit to Cake Boy.
