Layer Cake Masterclass with The Polka Dotter

Presented by Salma Sabdia (AKA The Polka Dotter)
About the class


LAYER CAKE MASTERCLASS – with Salma Sabdia (of the popular baking blog – The Polka Dotter).

A delightfully, deliciously, divine day.

Where do we begin?

Join Salma for a full day and create this masterpiece to take home.


What is this beautiful creation?

It’s a Lemon Curd and Coconut Cake. A light lemon cream cheese cake, filled with tangy lemon curd and covered in coconut swiss meringue buttercream.

From 9 am to 2.30pm Salma will expertly guide you through all of the elements required to build this cake – and build it you will!

There is much skill to be acquired, from mixing a delicate batter, making the most delicious lemon curd suitable for filling a cake as well as trouble shooting and nailing velvety swiss meringue buttercream.

You will also be taught perfect layer cake assembly. Cut your cake layers with confidence, pipe a frosting dam and fill it with curd and learn techniques for frosting a naked cake.

Finish it off with fresh flower decorations (courtesy of Still Life Floral Art) and a celebratory glass of bubbles!

It’s an epic class, which includes morning tea, lunch, your own set of Masterpro non-stick round layer cake pans (RRP $39.95) and fresh flowers, all under the tutelage of The Polka Dotter.

This class will suit anyone with a sweet tooth or a penchant for baking. It has been designed to advance your skill level, encourage creativity and engage all your senses.

A lovely day out with a friend, a perfect early Christmas gift for a budding pastry chef – or just because!

Places are limited as the focus of the class demands 8 participants only!
