  1. I purchased the course a while ago and the bouquets never get old! My customers love them and i do too because they are so easy to put together. I was making bouquets with the foam balls and it was a nightmare to transport them. This class made my life so much easier!!!! I recommend it to everyone.

  2. WOW. If you're thinking of getting a flower bouquet then order one now. Shelley is a fantastic baker and really thought everything with care. The person we brought these for loved them so much and had nothing but compliments. Sadly we didn't get to try any ourselves but I'm sure they tasted amazing...craving cake now!

  3. I bought the cupcake tutorial back in May after going self employed. I wanted something else to make along side celebration cakes. If you are in any doubt about whether or not to purchase the tutorial the there's no need. I have made in excess of 50 bouquets and plenty more on order. It's really easy to follow and you'll soon be hooked. Shelley Baker is 5* all the way.

  4. I recently found Shellys cake course after recovering from spinal surgery. I got hooked straight away and couldn't wait to get started. The tutorials were fantastic and I never expected I could produce some of the spectacular bouquets I had seen on her Facebook page so quickly. Now 3 months later I have just added up the total amount of bouquets I've sold and I have just passed the £1000 mark. AMAZING !!!! Thank you so much Shelly for your wonderful website

  5. Earlier this year I discovered Shelly Baker's online cupcake bouquet class, while searching for a cake decorating class. I was completely blown away by how visually stunning and completely original Shelly's bouquets are, and immediately bought the course. Following Shelly's clear instructions, and encouraged by her useful hints and tips, I sourced the necessary materials, and proudly produced my first bouquet.I had long had the desire to launch myself as a self employed home baker, and seeing that my reaction to the bouquets was shared by family and friends, guided by Shelly's step by step sound business advice, I took the plunge and I am now on the way to launching my business. The best part of the online cupcake bouquet course is the follow up support group on facebook, a fabulous network of like minded bakers, lending advice and encouragement all the way. Shelly Baker's course is fantastic, I strongly recommend this amazing opportunity.

  6. If you've wavering about whether or not to do one of Mrs Baker's courses, please stop and book on now. I did a course with Shelly approximately 2.5 years ago and then signed up to her online bouquet course. And all I can say is that both courses were worth every penny. I added the bouquets to my repertoire of cakes last week and have already taken a number of orders for them. The feedback I have received too has been amazing. So Shelly, a very big thank you from me, for both sharing your knowledge and your enthusiasm.

  7. I recently did the cupcake bouquet course and it was excellent. After only making a test one and adding to my cake page i have picked up 34 orders in less than a week. I would highly recommend it (well unless you live too close to me lol) The addition of the private facebook page is so valuable too, everyone is friendly and Shelly is super helpful. Thank you Shelly x

  8. I highly recommend Mrs.Bakers's book The Complete Book of Icing, Frosting, Fondant Skills. It is fill with tips and pictures of her step by step instructions, and most important, the recipes are really good. The sponge cake is so delicious, you should try it.

  10. I love Mrs Baker's Cakes, all my children have a cake each year she is simply the best ... Cakes are not dry you can have any flavour of your choice & they simply look the best.

    Every cake I have asked for has met & gone above my expectations.

    Lets not forget a lot of love & pride goes into these cakes 😊

  12. My husband was so pleased with his cake and he thought the carp and setting was absolutely brilliant. It tasted as good as it looked, the detail was fantastic. I have to say I was delighted with my choice of asking Shelly to do this. Incidentally using again soon and can't wait to see how the next masterpiece turns out.

  14. Thank you so much Shelly for the amazing mighty meaty pizza cake! Not only was the detail truly fantastic (including the tiny bits of melted cheese on the edges) it was absolutely delicious! All the guests were very impressed.
    Highly recommended! xxx

  18. Hi Shelly,
    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the time and effort you put into your school. I have been a member since last April and I can't wait to renew again. You always think of us, even when you have so much going on at home.
    Many other cake schools could learn a few things from you. Customer service is key to a great business.

    I hope Mr Baker's operation went well and he is in good health.

  21. I have sent you an email review of the class, but I wanted to post here so everyone can see too.
    I loved your class, having been to the other classes I told you about which were not a patch on yours, I have to say you should charge more. You really are so much more talented than you realise. You have a natural ability with teaching and I know everyone in the class felt the same.
    I have just signed up for your online school and I will be first in line for the sculpted classes. Please can you schedule in a Sunday dinner class?

    If anyone is looking for the best cupcake class to get you started with cakes this is the perfect one. Having spent over £400 on 2 other classes else where I can honestly say this was the best by far. She doesn't realise it, but Mrs Baker is brilliant.

    Much Love, see you soon

    Best wishes

  23. Hi Shelly,

    Thanks very much for the 4th Feb class. It was brilliant. I really enjoyed myself, and so did the others, and the cakes came out brilliantly! I did much better than I thought I could and learnt things I know I can do again easily. So thank you.
    You made it seem so easy and not at all anything to worry about. You’re a natural teacher, your way of describing things and ability to make people relax is fantastic. I think you’re going to do great things.

    Happy Cake baking

  24. The class was so much fun, Shelly made us feel at ease from the moment we arrived. I enjoyed myself so much I have booked my hen party cupcake class for June. Everyone is so excited to go after seeing the cupcakes I made.
    If you want to learn how to make really pretty cupcakes with lots of one to one time this one's the one to go for.
    I have previously been to a class which felt too stuffy and the class was too big so I didn't learn much as the lady was struggling to help everyone. Shelly made us all feel so at home and like we mattered to her. We couldn't have asked for more.

  25. Thank you for such a fun class. As promised I have just booked 2 more places for the class in March. I can't wait to bring Mum along to join in with the fun.
    Holly will be booking her Hen party soon so keep an eye out for her email.

    See you soon

  27. Thank you Shelly for the wonderful cake you made for my husband's 60th birthday. Everyone was very impressed with the design (postie's bag with cards falling out addressed to my husband) and they were all pleasantly surprised to find that it tasted just as good as it looked!! The attention to detail was spectacular! I am recommending you to all my friends. Best wishes, Barbara

  31. I had such fun at the cupcake class last weekend. So much so i have decided to come back and do another class, I have never been very creative but you made me feel so at ease. I think everyone should have a go at your classes it was great fun. I am usually rubbish with anything creative but my cupcakes looked so pretty when I'd finished.
    Thank you again and i will see you in September.

  48. Hi everyone I won a competition that mrs baker ran and I was lucky enough to win and the prize was a box of twelve death by chocolate cupcakes, firstly I have not seen cupcakes that look so nice that you do not want to eat them but I took the plunge and they were so moist and chocolaty without being sickly my kids now want shelly to be their mum so she can make them cakes all day everyday I would recommend to anyone to give these a go they will make a lovely gift for someone.

  49. I have really enjoyed looking through the photos of your beautiful cakes. They are so detailed, you must have loads of patience, it must take you ages to make each one. Your cupcakes look delicious too.

  50. Your birthday/special occasion cakes look spectacular, and just looking at the cupcakes has made me hungry! You are a very talented lady. I would definitely use you if I lived in Swindon. In fact I may have to move to Swindon just so I can taste those cupcakes!
