Sugarcraft & Cake Decoration Club

This is a friendly club and we meet at Fairkytes Arts Centre to learn about ‘sugarcraft’. We watch how to decorate cakes for special occasions and make the most intricate sugar flowers that look almost real. We also model people, animals and popular characters that are especially nice for children’s birthday cakes. We have demonstrations by experts, or sometimes join in a workshop for ‘hands on’ practice.

Our next meeting is on 6th April, when Linda Garnham will show us her “Easter Surprise” on decorated biscuits. Linda is a very experienced demonstrator who will give us lots of tips and hints in an enjoyable way. Entry is £7 and includes tea/coffee and (of course) home-made cakes!

The British Sugarcraft Guild is a national organisation, and we are the Hornchurch & Upminster branch. See to find out more.

You are very welcome to come to a meeting, no need to book. We meet on the first Saturday in the month 1.30 to 3.30pm, at Fairkytes Arts Centre, Billet Lane, Hornchurch RM11 1AX.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam
    I saw an article in a magazine about Hornchurch sugar craft guild and was interested in finding out more information, unfortunately I got everything but! There was information about the police, the bulletin, Lower Thames Crossing but nothing on sugar craft.
    It is something that I would be interested in, therefore would you be able to send some relevant information.
    Many thanks for your time
    Jennifer Spearman

    • Dear Jennifer,

      I am not sure which magazine article you refer to. Although it is from 2019, have you tried ringing the number shown at the bottom of this article? The Upminster and Cranham Residents’ Association do not have any further information as far as I am aware.

      Kind regards

      Cllr John Tyler
