121 tuition

Private tuition in cake decorating gives you the opportunity to learn exactly what you need, at your own pace, so you can have a real sense of achievement and enjoyment. I discuss the lesson with you beforehand to find out what you want to learn, then create a personal lesson for you. But as it’s individual tuition, it’s flexible and can depend on what you want to concentrate on. Prices £15-35 per hour

We hold personal cake decorating lessons in your own home and they usually last from 2 - 2.5 hours, examples of some of our lessons are below.

Private tuition for making tiered cakes

This is individually priced and tuition may need to be spread over two days, depending on the design and the number of tiers. You can learn how to stack tiers correctly, how to cover fruit cakes with marzipan and icing, as well as how to make specific sugar craft flowers or special models for cake toppers.
