We learnt some great little techniques and hacks of working with fondant and making clean square edges on our cake. A fun day out, super interactive and you take away a beautiful cake to feed 50 afterwards! Danielle was very approachable, has a great sense of humour and was super patient when we asked the same questions over and over. I can't wait to do more courses at Bake Boss.

I learnt quite a few different skills that I have never known before and really enjoyed the class. Our instructor, Danielle was helpful and informative. The only negative thing I have to say is that we made the bow at the start of class but did not air brush it until the very end of class and so when it came to putting the bow on the cake, it went soft and looked awful, I was very disappointed with this as it was for my mothers day cake. I would say that the bow needs to be air brushed at the start of the class when we make it so it has time to dry. Great class, just disappointed with the bow
