Make an Edible Wafer Paper Rose for Cakes



Anna Maria ran a a great Zoom class, with simple steps and clear video demonstrations (one camera pointed at her face and the other at her work surface). The kit contained everything needed to make two roses, and was well organised with item labels and instructions. I had no experience working with wafer paper before, and found it quite fiddly at first, but I started to get the hang of it and was  + more

Cookie Decorating with Royal Icing



Anna Maria covered a lot of beginner piping techniques in the 1 hour class, with clear instructions and multiple camera angles to help us follow what she was doing. As a complete beginner with zero decorating/icing experience, I was easily able to follow the class and ask for advice when I found certain steps difficult. As my first attempt, my cookies definitely aren't perfect, but I learnt a range  + more

Spooky Character Cookie Decorating Craft Box / Kit



This was brilliant and sooo much fun. Can't wait to do the other one, even if it's not Halloween. The biscuits were larger than expected and there was so much icing, could of done three times the number of biscuits, good excuse to make and/or buy some more. Everything was perfectly packed, not a single biscuit broken or piping bag popped.

Thanks Anna Maria What a lovely class to take. Easy to follow along, step by step online. Can't wait to perfect more roses and expand into other floral varieties. I hope your book is out soon. Is there any chance you would offer other floral varieties through Class Bento whilst creating your book? Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon. Vicki

The teacher was lovely, patient and extreemly good at what she does. The class size is super small so you get alot more attention to detail than in other larger classes. The studio was great and everything was supplied. We learnt how to layer, buttercream and do lots of different decoration techniques and tricks.
