My comments are for all courses. The teachers are so helpful, patient and their instructions are so clear. They give you lots of tips and not just for the course you are doing. I have been on many courses now and each one makes me feel that I have escaped from all the worries of the world and just relaxes me. The atmosphere in the class room is so nice and friendly. I would recommend the cake club. The club facebook page is so helpful. Any questions are normally answered in minutes/hours. You get so many ideas from the professionals and also in normal times we have free demos and tastes of cake too. If anyone has only a small interest in cake baking or decorating, all courses will help you to enjoy baking and give you ideas for decoration.
