Definitely confident to go home and recreate the Turkish Delight and Nougat for Christmas Presents. I’ve been online to find which course I can do next.

This is my third class with Patrick and the Sweet Artist Academy and I was definitely not disappointed (again). Patrick is an amazing tutor, bringing years of experience and knowledge and his passion for the art of making amazing masterpieces to the class shines through. The class size was ideal as this allowed each student to have the individual attention required to create the most amazing treats to take home.
