All Wilton Cake Decorating courses listed below are held at Tavola Kuwait.
For Location Map of Tavola, please click here


The Wilton Method® of Cake Decorating will teach you all of the techniques to make cakes and treats that will amaze your friends and family for years to come. It's an experience that over 4 million people have enjoyed in cake decorating classrooms the world over.

The Wilton Method consists of four courses taught by trained Wilton Method instructors

The first course, Building Buttercream Skills, is your starting point and will cover basics such as decorating and icing cakes, making icing with the right consistancy, and designing different types of buttercream flowers. Once the first course is completed, you can extend the excitement and fun by taking one of two other courses: Flowers and Cake Design or Fondant and Gum Paste.
















Flowers and Cake Design encompasses both traditional and contemporary design. It focuses on making flowers primarily with royal icing. Additionally, you will learn how to choose colours for your cake, as well as positioning the elements of decoration - borders, messaging, and flowers and embellishments.

In the Fondant and Gum Paste course, you will learn how to cover cakes in fondant, make fondant bows and borders, and excel in gum paste flowers. The final course, Advanced Gum Paste flowers, will take your cake decorating skills to the next level as you learn the art of making realistic gum paste flowers and create a variety of leaves, blossoms, and bouquet designs.

CAP Presents It’s a Mad World by Shurooq Amin
















Curated by: Martina Corgnati
In collaboration with Ayyam Gallery
Opening reception: Saturday, 9/4/2016
Time: 7:00 – 9:00pm
Exhibition dates: 10/4/2016 – 21/5/2016
It has been 4 years since the shutdown of Shurooq Amin’s last show in Kuwait and the subsequent censorship of her paintings. Since then, she has only exhibited her work abroad.  She has been fortunate to have the representation and backing of Ayyam Gallery, who believed in her,  gave her a platform to raise her voice uncensored, and invited her to show her work in Dubai and London, and now Contemporary Art Platform - Kuwait have invited her to exhibit in Kuwait again, to show her newest work in an exhibition titled ‘It’s a Mad World’ which opens 9th of April 2016 at 7:00pm, in collaboration with Shurooq Amin’s representative gallery Ayyam. It’s a Mad World will be curated by Martina Corgnati with whom Shurooq Amin spent time at the 56th Venice Biennale where Corgnati curated the pavilion Shurooq Amin was part of: Contemporary Practices Pavilion.

It is only fitting that the original title for this show – Apocalypso Now – should be changed to It's a Mad World, to arrive full circle from her last show in Kuwait, It's a Man's World.  As simple as the title is, as meaningful as it is for Shurooq Amin, since the pattern (semantically, syntactically, and phonetically) – and full circle – from It’s a Man’s World to It’s a Mad World is explicit.

It's a Mad World consists of 18 artworks and an installation.

Proof of Evolution?

Sheikh Shack


















Of all the palatial London mansions of the British aristocracy obliterated, carved up, or converted over the decades—only one, Dudley House, is now a private home. Qatari sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al-Thani, 33, has restored its 44,000 square feet of lost glory, emerging as a major collector and popular host to London’s elite, including the Queen who had supposedly said that the house "...makes Buckingham Palace look rather dull."
