Its 1 year since the first TOI Wanaka weekend, which was amazing, we have so many creatives in Wanaka.  

This year we are doing it a little different.  We will be holding a cake class, in our shop at The Precinct, first of its kind in Wanaka.  Cake will be along the lines of the cake above, but not the exact same.

Class is held on Sunday 17th October, at Cakes of Wanaka shop (28 Helwick Street) at 11am.  Class will go for around 2 ½ hours.  

Numbers are strictly limited so it will be a first come first served basis, and full payment is required by Sunday 10th October.  Places will not be held until payment is made. 

No previous experience is required, I will teach you all the skills needed.  

We will have a glass of bubbles on arrival and a nibble platter available. 

Cost is $150 per person, $10 extra for GF, all equipment is provided and a couple of unique tools are available for purchase if you'd like them, after class.  You will take home a beautiful finished cake and a tonne of skills for making your family & friends birthday cakes. Children over the age of 12 welcome, we will swap the bubbles for a juice.  Each person will work on one cake, so if parents would like to bring their child you will need to book a separate space.  If the child would like to come alone, they will be well looked after.

What to bring: 

  • You must wear closed shoes for safety.  

  • Bring an apron, it tends to get a bit messy

  • No big sleeves as they will get in the way

  • A turntable if you have access to one, makes life a bit easier


  • Chocolate mud cake, chocolate filling, buttercream, sprinkles & decorations, 1 x 20ml bottle Colour Mill colour of your choice.  Please visit the website below and add the colour to the form), presentation board & box to take your cake home in. 


About Colour Mill:

Have you had trouble with supermarket brands of colours not working?  Not a true colour? made your product split or go runny.  These colours will change your cake life, and can be added to almost any food medium you are creating. The colours are pretty exact to the product label. 

UPDATE:   The cut off for booking has passed, but we still have a couple of spots available.  Please book on the form below, but you may not get your first choice of colour, but I will have some spares.
