This course will give you a thorough introduction to the exciting world of patisserie.
You’ll learn about different pastry products, acquiring the skills, confidence and know-how to prepare various types of dough, sponge and pastry products, and produce delectable cakes, meringues, biscuits and desserts. This course also covers sugar art and decorative media.
Hands-on experience: Students spend a week in an artisanal bakery as part of their industry experience. The patisserie chef table takes the form of a high-adrenaline cake bake-off. For your exam, you’ll be expected to wow us with an exquisitely put-together high tea. The final project is a three-tier wedding cake.
