Great class to learn to make a 4 layer buttercream cake and decorate with flowers - great for a birthday cake for friends/family - despite not knowing anything about baking/icing. Annabelle & Linda were patient and great. Really good and happy to answer any questions even if it wasn't directly related. And everything right to ensure we all felt safe.
