We had an awesome time and learned some great cake decorating skills. Great teacher and lovely assistant. Both were warm, encouraging and helpful giving lots of extra help when required. (Particularly for the 12 year old) LOVED that they were able to provide Gluten free options too. Really happy with the class and the cakes/skills we walked away with and it was such a fun Mother/daughter activity to  + more

I took my daughter for her 13th birthday, and we had a fabulous time. Lesley was great, the materials provided were of high quality and the class size was perfect. We'll definitely be watching out for the next class!

Teacher was amazing. So many helpful tips and tricks. Value for money. So professional. Time went so fast. Can’t wait to do another course with you. Thank you so much.

Make an Ombre Buttercream Cake Decorating Class



Both Lesley and Liz were very professional in terms of their skill, knowledge and experience. The venue was relatively clean and tidy given its long standing existence and use as a niche craft space. While I wasn't cold, I anticipate heating would be useful dependent upon the hall's use by the community. I can't comment on whether the class was value for money as I haven't undertaken any similar classes to inform a cost comparison. I anticipate however, that many craft classes of this nature are of a similar cost. This may be slightly more expensive  + more

What a fantastic couple of hours learning how to make a drip cake. There was 5 of us and trying to organise a time was difficult so we had a private lesson in one if the ladies houses. Lesley was fantastic. Very patient and extremely encouragingly . Everything was provided for us to create our cakes.

Teacher was great and she showed exactly what we needed to do and she made the class enjoyable. The venue was really nice. Clean and white made it so relaxing to do a class in. All three of us had fun and it was very enjoyable. We will eventually do another decoration class but just cause of Covid we haven't but hoping soon to do the cupcake decorating class.

As I walked into the venue the chocolate aroma was very evident - we learned how to layer chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganache, decorate sugar cookies, dribble more chocolate ganache and decorate using a large variety of chocolate … our guide, Lesley, was very organised, very knowledgeable and really helpful throughout the process. It was a friendly relaxed class and a must for chocolate l  + more

This is our second class- my 11 yo daughter has done both classes. Leslie has such a skill in breaking down seemingly impossible things to easily achievable. The end result cakes on both occasions were truely amazing. A great class, beautiful location and highly recommended for absolute beginners or beyond.

I couldn't have asked for a better teacher than Lesley. She was very patient and encouraging during my private lesson to make my twins 3rd birthday cake. Lesley arrived on time at my house with all the supplies needed to create my selected cake design. Even providing a cake box. Lesley guided me through slicing layers, carving, ganach application, fondant and decorating. Highly recommend a lesson with  + more

Great class. Everything provided. Lesley was lovely. We cut the cakes, used ganache to fill and do the sides. Drip and ganache the top then decorate with lots more chocolates. Lesley was great and walked us through everything. We also marbled fondant to ice sugar cookies for more decorations.
