We are delighted to be welcoming Lucie Bennett back to The Bertinet Kitchen this August for her Swiss Meringue Buttercream Cake Class.
This class will cover the making of your very own celebration cake. You will learn how to make a flavoured soaking syrup in summer seasonal flavours which may include summer berry, raspberry, elderflower or strawberry. You will also be making seasonal fruit compote and swiss meringue buttercream. After this, you will stack and coat your cake before the all-important decoration. Piping techniques and different decoration styles will be covered, with tips of how to use fruit fruits and edible flowers to create a sensational seasonal celebration cake.
The cakes promise to look as gorgeous as they taste and are sure to impress your friends and family when you make them again at home. You don’t want to miss out on this treat!
After starting her career as a Pâtissier in 2004 at Westminster Kingsway College on a two-year pâtissierie scholarship, Lucie moved to London and joined one of the UK’s leading chocolatiers, William and Suzue Curley. It was there that she refined her skills as a Pâtissier and Chocolatier while also gaining her first experience giving workshops. Lucie left London after four and a half years, taking her knowledge all over the UK, as well as to Greece, China and Saudi Arabia. She has many exciting projects such as teaching baking and chocolate classes, recipe developing with Bailey’s, being featured in Country Living magazine, and working as a brand ambassador for Guittard Chocolate in the UK. Currently, she works from her family home creating bespoke celebration cakes, wedding cakes, afternoon teas and pâtisseries. Lucie has an abundance of experience and skill; a day’s teaching from her promises to be full of wisdom, advice, and fun.
Please bring boxes with you take home some of your rich, beautiful creations.
