Building on the huge popularity of our Cupcake Boot Camp, we are delighted to introduce the Cake Boot Camp!

This class has been designed for complete beginners and cake novices, and is intended to teach you all of the skills you require in order to be able to create an amazing full-size 6” cake.

Our boot camps are extremely hands on, and although help is on hand if required, you get to do all the work!

The class is deliberately kept small with only three students per class, this ensures personal attention as needed and provides for a spacious and comfortable working environment.

Drinks are on tap and a light lunch is served. All necessary equipment and ingredients are provided, including the apron, so all you need do is show up! What else could one wish for!

To save time our beautiful sponge cakes are baked in advance and are ready and waiting for you when you arrive.
