Course testimonials:

  • Sam said: This course was fantastic with lots of great info! My only suggestion would be that it could’ve gone for an extra half hour to an hour longer so we had more time to do the coloured decorations part. Other than that it was brilliant and I’ll definitely be practising what I learned at home

  • Melinda said: Loved this course! Annabelle was so knowledgeable and the pacing of the lesson was well planned to help students achieve success. Having our own cakes allowed for great creativity and I was so proud to take my creation home! Can’t wait to try out the skills I learnt at home. Thanks for an amazing course!

  • Danielle said: Funny, easy going environment with lots of knowledge and information shared - Annabelle was a great teacher and host.
