For a very long time I have always wanted to try a cake decorating course, but never seemed to find a course that suited me the best. Until I did this course, this course interested me from the description online and went I actually undertook the course it did not disappoint! I have gained so many tips of how to produce a beautiful cake and am excited to put these tips in place when making cakes for my family and friends. Would highly recommend this course, great teacher, great duration (not too long) and great environment.
