The Vale Resort in Hensol, south Wales has whisked up a new break for budding bakers who want to make like Mary Berry and create the perfect cupcake.
The Cupcake Break combines a morning spent cooking up a storm in the kitchen learning how to bake and decorate cupcakes, combined with a luxury stay in Wales’ favourite four-star resort.
Guests will be taught everything they need to know to create perfect cupcakes every time, from mixing up a light sponge through to sugar craft and the perfect icing techniques. At the end of their stay, they will be able to take everything they make home to impress friends and family with their masterpieces.
And those whose skills aren’t quite up to the likes of Mary Berry needn’t worry as a professional tutor will be on hand to make sure that everyone ‘rises’ to the challenge.
Stephanie Metson, marketing manager of the Vale Resort, said: “Cupcakes have become increasingly popular over recent years, thanks to the trend of all things pretty and vintage.
“No celebration these days is really complete without a selection of cupcakes but what’s really impressive is being able to make them yourself.
“Our Cupcake Break is suited to people of all abilities, from experienced bakers to absolute beginners, and by the end of the session everyone will be baking, icing, piping and frosting like a true pro.
“You can come along with friends or family, or simply jump into the mix with a group of other cupcake lovers to learn some new skills in a totally relaxed and friendly environment.”
The full break is just £99 per person per night, and includes:
1 night luxury accomodation
