Education

I'm thrilled to now be offering one-to-one private tuition in cake baking, decorating and design at my home in Bath.

During your tailored session, we'll equip you with the necessary skills and confidence to pursue your own baking aspirations, whether that be to perfect your cakes at home, or refine and expand your existing skills set.  

Baking has given me an outlet for my creativity and a whole new career path, and I'm passionate about passing on the knowledge I've accumulated to other budding cake makers. I want to help you develop you the fundamentals to design and create your own beautiful, modern buttercream cakes at home for friends and family, or to take the next step in your own cake journey.
