The Icing Workshop

Food/Drink-Centred Attraction, Entertainment


The Icing Workshop is a unique and fun place on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales where you can try your hand at cake decorating.

Similar in concept to a pottery café, at The Icing Workshop everything is provided from the delicious vanilla sponge cake in a choice of 2 sizes to the cake board, a selection of pretty ribbons, buttercreams & coloured sugar pastes along with an array of edible pens, paints, sprinkles and beads to decorate the cake plus a professional box to transport your own showstopper home.

Included in the price is use of all the cutters, moulds, patterned rollers and impression mats plus tuition and assistance throughout whether you want to learn a specific skill or make a model of a favourite pet.

Each session generally lasts about 2 hours and starts with a 15 minute demonstration on how to fill and cover the cake, and how to use all the equipment. Customers are then free to decorate their cakes however they like – come with an idea in mind, bring a photo to copy or be inspired by the large collection of latest cake decorating magazines, books, photos or dummy cakes in the bright and airy studio. Assistance is always available to help you achieve whatever you want, and it’s easy when all the equipment is to hand. Whatever you make will taste delicious and make a lovely gift – whether for someone special or a treat for yourself.

Based in a converted village hall with plenty of free parking, The Icing Workshop is ideal for group events such as birthday parties, WI meetings, mums get-togethers, business networking, hen parties and office team building. Accommodating between 8 and 18 people, bookings can be made at any time including weekends and evenings subject to availability.

Cake decorating is fun for any age and makes an ideal multi generational activity. Children under 6 will need an adult to help them.

Workshops are also held regularly for smaller groups or single bookings – check website for upcoming dates.

Freshly grounds coffees, cappuccinos & lattes as well as teas and a selection of cold drinks are available to purchase during sessions. Group bookings are welcome to bring their own event food if required.

Toilet facilities are located up a flight of stairs.
