Highly recommend these classes by Emelia. By making just one cake I learned so much! So many tips and techniques were shared - and the hands on experience has given me confidence to try another one at home. Emelia had prepared her class very well, with the buttercream and cakes already made previously. She calmly guided her six students through the various cake making stages, passing on her expert knowledge within a friendly and calm environment. We all left with a beautiful cake that could be eaten straight away or frozen for later. Good value for money, considering the time Emelia would have worked before and after the class, the quantity of (high quality) ingredients required and the stunning (and delicious!) cake we took home. Thanks Emelia for this amazing experience. :)

Emelia’s hands on class was wonderful! As soon as the class started Emelia had everything prepped and ready to go for all of us so the cake making could take place right away! Each step was carefully and thoughtfully explained and demonstrated so much so that our cakes came out looking like they could go straight into a shop window!! We were also given the tools to use whatever products she had on hand to decorate however we wanted to and the cake tasted AMAZING I wouldn’t hesitate to come back and do another class I learnt so much that I can now put into practise each day when baking and decorating! Thank you Emelia xx
