A brilliant day spent with Kate learning how to ice semi naked cakes. Kate is a wonderful tutor, very patient and encouraging with clear instructions. We learnt lots - the techniques as well as lots of useful hints and tips. Thanks for a great day!

Had a fabulous day with Kate learning lots of new techniques! She is an amazing teacher, very patient and didn’t feel rushed at all. I will definitely be back for further training in the future. Thank you!

I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic two days 1:1 tuition with you. I have really learnt so much and feel I have come away with skills that are going to push my business forward for the future. I have had a great response from the cake we made and have already taken two wedding cake bookings which incorporate parts of the design we put together and new techniques you have taught me. I really appreciate all your help and would highly recommend you to anyone who wants to learn how to bake or further their decorating skills. Can’t wait to book some more days with you in the future.
