Cupcake decorating and afternoon tea at Copthorne Hotel Newcastle

Jun 09,2015

This Sunday we invited twenty-three of our favourite bloggers to the Copthorne Hotel in Newcastle city centre for a delightful afternoon of cupcake making, followed by a well-deserved afternoon tea.

Upon arriving, the bloggers were greeted with prosecco and canapés (because there's really no better way to start an afternoon), and were then introduced to cupcake expert, Julie of Julie's Cake House.

Julie's Cake House is a popular Newcastle-based bakery, creating everything from stunning wedding cakes, to fun birthday cakes, to entertaining novelty cakes.

The talented Julie took the bloggers through a fantastic workshop in which they decorated four truly fabulous cupcakes.

During the masterclass, the bloggers made these gorgeous, bright yellow floral designs:

As well as these quirky and stylish treats:

And not forgetting these little piggies:

We were impressed at how well the bloggers took to designing these delectable treats, with no small thanks to Julie's great teaching skills.

After the workshop, the group were invited on a tour around the hotel, and were then able to sit down to a refreshing afternoon tea (they'd been working hard!). After tucking into a feast of sarnies, scones and cakes, everyone was given their very own boxed up, freshly decorated cupcakes to take home and show off to their friends and family. We can only imagine that they were as impressed as we were with the stunning results!
