In this course we will take you through everything you need to know to bake and frost the regal cake of your dreams.
Starting at the very beginning, we’ll touch on some basics of baking from must-have tools to need-to-know techniques, tips and tricks! You’ll learn how to bake a fool-proof cake sponge, make silky smooth Swiss Meringue Buttercream plus a delicious cake filling! Once you’ve got these basics under your belt we’ll get you confident in stacking, frosting and achieving razor sharp edges on a single tier cake using Swiss meringue buttercream.
We’ll look at trendy vintage cake design styles and work with piping nozzles as well as painting with buttercream to create portraits and floral designs!
This course will be rounded off with a quick look at tips and tricks to beautifully photographing and editing pics of your baked goods to post on social media and have all your followers drooling over your feed!
Once you’ve worked your way through this course you will comfortably be able to navigate the kitchen and create an assortment of beautifully tasty cake designs that you put together from scratch. Besides for learning some technical skills, you will be equipped with the tools to creatively execute your own take on the techniques we will teach you as well as getting an introduction on how to photograph what you make!
You will learn a basic cake and filling recipe as well as our SLH Swiss meringue buttercream. We will also teach you how to stack and frost a cake that will form the base for design outcome-based techniques we will show you using simple tools and, yup you guessed it, buttercream! One of the main outtakes from this course will be how to paint with buttercream as well as achieving a vintage-inspired regal look on your creations.
Being able to make something you are proud of is satisfying in it’s own right, but creating something that tastes as good as it looks is hard to beat - especially when you can share your creations with those around you.

Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
After completing a part-time pastry course in 2015, owner and creative director, Nikki Albertyn’s graphic design skills and love for all things visual melted into one with the art of baking after completing a part-time pastry course. She began to share her sweet adventures on Instagram, gradually creating a demand for more of her drool-worthy designs, learning and teaching herself along the way, and so… Sweet LionHeart was born.
The team that will lead you through this course consists of Nikki, Natalie, Tarryn and Laura that have a combined experience as pastry chefs in hotels and fine-dining environments, photography and food styling, baking and food science and, of course cake design.
