Spotlight on……..our Flowers & Swirls Cupcake Class

Here is another blog post on one of our classes, to give you a more in depth look at what you can learn. I know that it's often hard to get a full picture when you've only got a short description on the website, and a photo of cakes made by one of our tutors (Natalie...

Some sad news

We knew it was probably coming, but that doesn't make it any easier.  The lovely Debs is leaving us in June as she's moving away.  It's the first time a tutor has had to leave The Cake College in nearly 5 years, and we know we'll have a big gap to fill. If you're...

A complete beginner to cake decorating?

So, we've introduced a new class recently, which is always exciting.  We often find that people come along to our cupcake classes but are too scared to then take the leap to the next level and try a big cake. So we came up with the idea of our brilliant Big Cake...

She believed she could, so she did.

4 years ago today, I finally decided to be the girl to go for it, and to set up the cake decorating class business I'd been thinking of for so long. New Year seems to be a time for new beginnings, and plans, and actions and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. How many of...

Inspired by the Great British Bake Off……

I'm sure it won't come as much of a surprise if I say that I love cake.  Pretty much all cake, but my favourite flavours are anything fruity or vegetablely (new made up word alert), carrot cake is probably my all time favourite.  So when the Great British Bake Off had...

Imitation the most sincere form of flattery?

So that well known proverb might be true, but last week I wasn't quite so convinced when I discovered a cake decorator who had not only taken photos from our website, but had also copied our class descriptions word for word, and was passing the classes off as her own....

An easy pretty Easter cake

Today I've made an Easter cake for the weekend, ready for family to devour it (as if there won't be enough chocolate around!).  It's such a simple cake but really pretty and effective, so I thought I'd share how to make it for anybody that fancies a bit of baking. The...

One of my favourite places…….

Disclaimer: I can't promise that this blog will always be about cakes/cupcakes/cookies!  My other loves include food, travel, my animals and books, so they may well feature too. Now that that's out of the way, I can write a blog post that has nothing to do with cakes....

Frequently Asked Questions

We run roughly 6 classes a month and although we get asked a huge amount of different questions (which we're always happy to answer), the same ones do come up fairly regularly, so I thought a FAQ might be a good idea for a new blog post.  Below are just a few of...

An introduction to The Cake College!

So, as you may have noticed, this is my first blog post (eeeek!).  I'm hoping that your expectations of my blog posts are suitably low, but thought I'd start this off with an introduction to The Cake College for those that haven't been to a class yet (why on earth...

Kind Words

Had a wonderfully evening and will be back! Vintage style next time!

Sinead, Ireland

Went to my first class today, Ganache and Lace, and it was absolutely brilliant. Jenni is a great teacher, so patient and helpful, and I finished up with an amazing cake that I never thought I would be able to do.

Sue, Berkshire

What a wonderful way to spend a day learning to decorate cup cakes. Staff were lovely. Results amazing. If you ever thought ‘I could never do that’ … spend a day here and you will prove yourself wrong.

Wendy, Hurst

Had my first class (Christmas Cupcakes) this week and I have a fab time!  I learned so much, cannot wait to try everything out! Atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, could not have asked for more!

Claire, Wokingham

Loved the sugar paste flower course. Can't wait to get practising and create more beautiful creations! Will definitely try another course in the future.

Alison, Surrey

I have now done two classes, both were absolutely brilliant. The cupcake class with Natalie was great fun and I was amazed that my results were as good as they were as I am a real beginner at cake decorating.

Jan, Berkshire
