The cake shop had pre-made the chocolate cupcakes and the chocolate icing. Katrine was our instructor and she demonstrated several ways to apply icing to the cupcake. She made it look super easy, then she demonstrated how to make the pretty little flowers using marzipan (fondant in the USA) with food coloring and other decorations. Then they gave us a very valuable tip on how to flour the table/cooking surface without making a HUGE mess, by filling a "knee high hosiery" with flour and patting the surface. Its brilliant and so worth the cost of the class.
Then it was our turn to do the work. The bags of icing were already on the table ready for us to use… I liked making the swirls and for once in my life I made decent cupcake topping.
