We’re coming to the end of another great year, and getting ready to relax over Christmas before we start again in 2017. So I thought I’d choose my top 3 highlights of 2016 to share with you all, and take a look at what’s coming up next year.
The establishment of the brand new Renshaw Academy has to be one of the highlights of our year. Here we’re able to bring inspiration and education to anyone that would like to expand their cake decoration knowledge and skills.
There are so many courses being planned for 2017 with some fantastic cake tutors. Here are a few pictures of the class room and courses so far.
Marion Frost from Patchwork Cutters with students.
If you are interested in attending one of our classes, please visit the Renshaw Academy website here.
All the preparation is completed ahead of class by the Academy Team. This means that all equipment and product is available for you to use during the course which takes out the hassle of sorting lists and trying to remember to bring everything. A light buffet lunch is also provided for the day courses and the Renshaw Academy staff are always on hand to help with any queries. All you have to do is turn up and have fun!
We look forward to seeing you in 2017!
We would like to thank everyone who contributed their recipes to the new community section of our website. It’s been a great success and there have been some fantastic entries. We love to see what you are making with our products and we hope you enjoyed sharing your hard work with others too.
We hope that in 2017 we will see many more entries and to spur you on that bit more we are introducing a ‘Community Recipe of the Month’.
Here are a few of our favourites so far…
Butterfly Ballet Cake by Shelley-Anne Scarff
Autumnal Tree House Cake by Bev Smart-Pettiford
In November, the Renshaw Baking and the Academy teams came to the BBC Good Food Show. Together we taught over 300 students how to create a Christmas model topper or how to decorate a Christmas cake. It was a jam packed weekend and fun was had by all.
Jacqui Kelly from Totally Sugar was our guest tutor and a great addition to the team during this time.
We’ve got the results of our Big Trends Survey coming up soon, and we’ll be using this to see the type of inspiration and tutorials you’d most like for next year, like cake painting, hidden centre cakes and plenty of cupcakes for all!
We’ll also have plenty of competitions and opportunities throughout the year for you to share your bakes with us and the rest of the Renshaw Baking community, so keep your eyes on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
