COVID-19 – Live teaching event update:
As most of our students travel from overseas, flying currently into UK means any traveller upon arrival at any UK airport must go into quarantine by law and self isolate for 14 days. For David to be able to teach live at the event venue, social distancing rules set out by the UK government will realistically have to be completely relaxed. David's teaching approach involves very close creative interaction, sitting next to each student during 1 to 1 demonstrations, as well as sharing equipment and materials. Once the pandemic is over and government restrictions lifted, live cake decorating courses will resume and event dates will be announced on David Cakes website.

With Cake Maker To Royalty and Multi-Award Winner David MacCarfrae
Professional training for beginners / hobbyists / advanced cake decorators
“I have been admiring David’s work and art from a distance for many years. I had never seen such elaborate beautiful and intricate designs anywhere else. His work is so different and when I see a photograph of a royal Icing cake anywhere on the internet I can always tell whether it’s David’s or somebody else’s. He has a very distinctive way of decorating and I wanted to learn from him from the very first moment I discovered his royal icing.
Travelling to Liverpool and attending a one on one master class with David was one of the most beautiful, interesting and inspiring journeys in my life.
I knew from the moment I contacted David that it would be worth the time and effort, but I had never imagined that I would be able to learn so much in such a short time. David is a fantastic teacher with lots of patience and passion. I believe him to be the master of royal icing and I can’t wait to go back to Liverpool, a city I have fallen in love with, and learn more from David and his team.
Thank you so much”

I am so lucky to have attended such a wonderful course that nurtured the birth of a new skill so tenderly. I will practice the gift you have passed on and use it to create more beauty in the world. I thank you and Ed for your ever so caring hospitality and patience. I will forever have a part of David Cakes in my creation,
no matter how far I may be and will always think of you when I create. ”
