This is a great course. Jane is a nice friendly tutor who guides you through the different skills and techniques patiently. The finished cakes look amazing! The location is lovely too and Jane and Paul are very welcoming and create a very relaxing atmosphere with cups of tea and biscuits and cakes on arrival and during the break. I would definitely recommend this course.

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Thank you for the recommendation.

Booked this for my parents and daughter as a birthday present, they had a wonderful time, Jane and Paul were so welcoming and friendly and the cakes they brought home looked amazingly professional for a beginner's course. Plenty of yummy refreshments provided. Many thanks for the hospitality and a fabulous day.

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Thank you for this very positive feedback. I am so pleased that your parents and your daughter had a wonderful time. Your father was the first male participant that we have had on our Beginner's Cupcake Decorating course. Your daughter and your parents produced some lovely cupcakes, and were a pleasure to teach. So glad they had a 'fabulous day' and took home some beautifully cupcakes. I hope to see them at a future course.

This is an excellent course for anyone who wants to learn simple, yet effective methods of decorating cup cakes. The morning was very well organised and Jane is such a patient teacher. Highly recommended!

What an amazing morning! I have learnt so many simple but effective techniques to make beautifully decorated cakes. I didn’t expect mine to look so professional after such a short time and can’t wait to try again at home. Thank you so much.

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Thank you Hazel for the great feedback. It is appreciated. Hope to see you on a future course. Good luck with the home baking and cake decorating.

Fantastic cupcake decorating session today with Jane. I have tried many times in the past to produce cupcakes that look good to no avail. But today with the right tools and tips I have produced six different designs that all have the “wow” factor. I have come straight home and ordered the same equipment to do it all again. Can’t wait to try the next course.

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Thank you for your very positive feedback. We really appreciate your comments. We look forward to seeing your on future courses at Tara House Bakery.

Had an amazing time on this course, it has definitely inspired me to try more cake decorating in the future. I was that proud of the cupcakes i had decorated that i took them to my work with me to show everyone.
It was a really lovely day with a relaxing atmosphere and Jane was so friendly and welcoming.
Would love to attend another one in the future!

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Thank you, Leah. So glad to hear you have been inspired to decorate more cakes in the future. Hopefully we will see you at another Tara House Bakery course soon.

I attended this course with my mum and sister and had a great time. We were taught how to decorate cupcakes using a variety of techniques and equipment, which were all provided for us. It was a very relaxing morning and were made very welcome. I would love to do another course and recommend it to anyone who is interested in improving their decorating skills.

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Many thanks Maisie. So glad that you enjoyed your morning. Your decorated cakes looked amazing. Hope to see you on a future course. Thanks again.

Today I attended my second session with Jane. The welcome was friendly and we were extremely well hosted by both Jane and Paul with tea and lovely homemade cakes. The session was exceptionally well prepared and Jane is a very patient and skillful teacher. I learned a great deal of new skills and techniques and produced 6 beautifully decorated cupcakes. The session itself was very calm and relaxing because Jane is so skilled in what she is doing. I would recommend this course course to anyone with an interest in cupcakes. I have already booked my next course!

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Thank you Lindsay. We really appreciate such glowing feedback. We look forward to seeing you at the Vintage Cupcake Decorating course in March.

I attended this course with my daughters as a birthday treat and we had a wonderful morning. We were made very welcome with tea, coffee and homemade cakes and shown how to decorate six cupcakes beautifully. Everything was provided and I learned a lot of techniques in one morning. We were all very proud of our cakes when we finished and I would love to do another course. It was a very friendly and relaxing morning and I would recommend Tara House bakery to anyone who wants to learn or improve cake decorating skills.

Response from Tara House Bakery:

Many thanks for such positive feedback. It is really appreciated. Hope to see you at another course in the future.
