Cupcake Day Out for Half-Term

The Icing on the Cupcake


Delight your child this half term with a visit to Fortnum & Mason, the quintessential English store, situated in the heart of London’s Piccadilly. On Wednesday 23rd February (2pm), the First Floor Demonstration Kitchen will play host to a fun afternoon where children can learn how to decorate cupcakes like a professional, courtesy of vanilla and flavour extract specialist – Nielsen-Massey.


Children will be given the opportunity to decorate delicious cupcakes from MasterChef semi-finalist and Nielsen-Massey’s very own ‘Cupcake Queen’ – Harriet Jenkins.   The cupcake class will demonstrate to children how to pipe various icing techniques including the much sought after ‘rose’ effect. Your little one will also be given plenty of opportunity to join in and help create beautifully decorated cupcakes. Harriet will be sharing her tips and techniques on decorating cupcakes using everything from yummy sweeties to edible rose petals, all from Fortnum’s Food Hall.  Children will also be taught the importance of using the best quality ingredients, and in particular, why Nielsen-Massey Vanilla and flavour extracts are the ingredients to choose when baking.
