A beautiful place to learn…...
The Cake College is located in a stunning oak framed building in the grounds of a Grade II* listed Georgian farmhouse. We are close to Reading, 10 minutes drive from train stations and within easy reach of the M4 and M3. We are close to the Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Surrey, and Oxfordshire borders, so easily accessible for these counties. For those coming from further afield, we have our own on site accommodation (a 2 bedroom self contained apartment above the classroom), and we rent this to students at a reduced rate - please get in touch for more details or to book.
Reading and Wokingham train stations are within a few miles, and Heathrow airport is only half an hour away. Plenty of off street parking is available, with electric car chargers too, and if you need to book a hotel or taxi, we are happy to help with that.
Each cake class is held in our large purpose built 'cake barn', a light and airy space, and ideal for learning a new skill or perfecting an existing one. We have ovens and hobs so that we can have up to 10 students baking and decorating, and huge comfy sofas for sinking in to when it's time for a break. We believe that your learning environment is just as important as the tutor and class content, and it is an ideal setting to learn and have fun in.
As a place to work it takes some beating, and sometimes when we’re stood by the island, looking out over the fields and watching the chickens cluck around the garden, we do have to pinch ourselves.
There are lot of photos below if you'd like a closer look at our classroom, as well as a map to help you find us.
Our fully equipped classroom is also available to hire, and is a perfect place for cookery classes, food photography, product launches or team building. Please contact us to discuss if you are interested in venue hire.
we are very grateful that our new classroom has been supported by The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas
