A few weeks ago I popped along to The Make Lounge with a couple of friends to try our creative skills on a spot of cake pop making..!! But what is a cake pop I hear you ask.. Well, they are small crumbs of sponge mixed with butter cream to create solid circular pops.. You can then cover and decorate them to your hearts desire!!
You can make lots of fun animals such as pigs and sheep or you can keep things really simple and use glitter and sprinkles. They would look great for a themed festival wedding and a great alternative to a traditional cake!!
I have to admit that cake decorators are now in a league of their own. You can understand why we pay them to bake and decorate our wedding cakes when you do this workshop!! All the same its a fun Hen Do experience and I would definitely recommend a bit of cake popping with the girls pre wedding day!!
Bookings start at £39 per person and include all materials, expert instruction, tools and equipment, plus tea and coffee, all in a fun, friendly atmosphere!
The minimum guest charge is for 8 people; book a group of 15 or more and the bride-to-be goes free!
On the day of your party, you can bring your own wine/champagne (no corkage fees) and party nibbles. They provide wine glasses, champagne flutes, platters, bowls, cake stands, etc. plus iPod docking stations for your very own PARTY!!
They are steps aways from the vibrant London’s Upper Street bars and restaurants so you can continue the celebrations after your workshop….
Amy and I dunking our pops… Could I be more excited ??
At the end of the workshop we had the chance to decorate our own cake pop (freestyle). I opted for a bright star number as I thought this theme would be perfect for a fun festival wedding!! You could decorate yours as microphones, flags or maybe create some wellies!!
If you haven’t heard of The Make Lounge before.. check them out as they do loads of great workshops that are perfect for an alternative hen do. My next workshop of choice will be the ‘Fancy Pant’s’ Knicker Customising – Bring a pair of knickers and transform them into glamorously gorgeous pants! Use Swarovski crystals, ribbons, lovely fabric, applique motifs, and more.
