I highly recommend this course! I'm a self taught cake decorator but was looking to firm up my skills and learn some ones. It was fantastic, i learnt loads and Charlotte was a great teacher. The size of the class was just right and we had lots of time to ask questions and try out all the techniques. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in cake decorating.

Really great course, learnt new skills and have come away buzzing with ideas. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to ice cakes for the first time. This was my first time and I am so pleased with the beautiful cake that I completed in the day.
Charlotte is a very patient teacher who makes you feel very relaxed and at ease.

Fantastic course! Had a great day and was taught at such a good pace. I had never iced a cake before and was amazed with the cake I had made when we finished the day. Would recommend to anyone as I was a complete novice! Thanks very much Charlotte, can't wait for the next course! :)

My mum and I had a wonderful day on the one day course. Charlotte was the loveliest, friendliest person and everything we learnt was step by step but at a good pace so everyone learnt new skills and techniques.
Neither of us had iced a cake before and we know know how to ice a beautiful cake with fondant icing. Both my mum and myself would recommend this course for those who are beginners and those who have experience but want more of a challenge or to learn something new. A wonderful day and I have learnt so much - thank you Chatlotte! :-))))

So glad I found Charlotte and her Courses ! I learnt so much in a really great environment; I look forward to doing many Courses in the future. Our group included people with no experience at all, and others who had a range of experience. Charlotte's teaching was superb, such that we all learnt a huge amount, and had lots of fun in the process - all of us heading home with a "wow" cake ! Many thanks Charlotte.

Absolutely loved the whole day. I had no experience in cake decorating before and was expecting to come home with an amateur looking patched up cake but Charlotte took us through each step carefully and explained everything so well that we were all very proud of our cakes and they looked great! Perfect day for singles/couples/groups

I have been on two courses run by Charlotte and have enjoyed every minute. We all learnt a great deal in a very friendly and relaxed environment. Charlotte is an excellent teacher and is happy to share all the tricks of the trade. The family could not believe I had created such a masterpiece when I got home. I look forward to going on other courses and have already puts my newly acquired skills to full use. Thank you Charlotte
