More Cupcakes......

Just another little announcement post today. I have been cooking too, but this is far more important and something I really want to tell you all about.

Bella Torta is now hosting cupcake decorating classes! This week, as a thank you to all the girls who work for us (and because L is a little mean and doesn't take them out at Christmas!) I hosted a trial cupcake decorating class. Something I've loved the idea of doing, ever since I went on one myself.

It was (I think) a great success and all the girls went away with 12 cupcakes that they spent a delightful afternoon decorating.

In case you're interested, and maybe even might like to come on one of the courses that I'm offering the details are all listed below. As ever, I'll be updating the Bella Torta website and facebook page with more dates and more styles of classes in the next few weeks. Please feel free to come and visit me in the restaurant premises for a really fun way to spend a day!

Birds, Buds and Bows Cupcake Decorating Class!

Monday 8th and Monday 22nd August

Join us in our relaxed restaurant environment for 5 hours of cupcake decorating bliss, from 10.30a.m. until 3.30p.m. where you will:

• Gain confidence using two types of icing

• Use professional icing colour gels, equipment and techniques

• Style a gorgeous large ruffled bow and make delicate yet full sugar roses

• Use florist paste to make bespoke bows, birds and flowers

• Learn how to top cupcakes with smooth or embossed sugar paste for all your decorations to sit neatly upon

• Get a chance to have all of your decorating questions answered and dilemmas solved

• Take home a unique box of 12 cupcakes that you have decorated from scratch

• Be inspired to go home and make more cupcakes just to decorate them!

The class is just £90 and includes course notes, all ingredients, equipment and materials. Please bring your own packed lunch.

Our cupcake classes are suitable for beginners and we hope that by the end of the class, your head will be full to bursting with ideas and inspiration. If you have any questions before you book, please call in to Ponte Vecchio or call Bella Torta on 07521 161547 or email

  1. Those cup cakes are too nice to eat, they are quite beautiful. Diane

  2. If I lived in the UK, I'd want to sign up. Your cupcakes look gorgeous, and of course, very high-end and professional.

  3. Those are gorgeous cupcake designs. This would be such a fun event for my 17 year old and some of her friends. I could see these laid out at a wedding too. Over here in the U.S., it seems that cupcakes are popular instead of the traditional wedding cake.

  4. These cupcakes look gorgeous.

    So elegant.
