  1. I get asked time and time again by new students if they need any experience before attending my classes. The answer is a definitive no!  I have students from all walks of life who come to my classes for many reasons. Some because they are interested in decorating cakes for a living and others because they feel they need to try something new.

    In almost all circumstances the student has no previous experience and starts out needing every bit of knowledge possible. Many comment how they can bake, but it is the decorating they struggle with and need help learning, which is great, as my classes are generally all based around decorating the cakes. This ensures that during each class we get every minute dedicated to learning the right skills until the student has perfected it.

    Just this weekend I had a repeat class with a lovely student called Hayley. She has previously attended my Shabby Chic class but until then had no previous experience with cake decorating.  As you can see her cakes are amazing and she has really nailed the decorating side of things.

    I have some great classes coming up in the next few months, from Shabby chic cupcakes to Floral cakes and even a few novelty classes. Take your pick and book yourself a great day out. I can promise you that you will surprise yourself with how simple it really is when you are taught by myself.

  2. I have some fabulous news! I have been chosen as one of Netmum’s Favourite classes for things to do in Wiltshire.

    I can’t tell you how proud I am of this achievement, as a working mum one of my main aims was to cater for other mums and help them to spread the happiness I once gained from my own mother’s baking and cake decorating. Now I really am with my classes reaching people from all over the UK and especially in Wiltshire.

    If you are looking to learn how to decorate a cake or even cupcakes then my classes are here to tech you the skills you will need. We are the best cupcake class provider in Swindon and pride ourselves on being able to demonstrate not only beginner’s skills but advanced too.

    All cake decorating classes are held in our purpose built studio to make learning relaxed and welcoming. We provide all materials and refreshments for each class and all each student needs to bring is a snack for lunch.
