LESSONS

In June 2012 I opened up my first Cake Studio. This is a custom built space for me to get creative in. I wanted to share my passion with others so The Cake Lady Lessons was created! When booking any course you will also get 10% off of any purchase in the shop at the end of the day.

I believe that visual learning is the best and easiest way and learning in a group is definitely more fun!

I put my heart and soul into my work and would love to share this with you.

All materials & equipment are provided.

TESTIMONIALS

“I did the Sugar Craft Course with the Cake Lady for 4 weeks and I absolutely loved it! Charlotte is so kind, so helpful and so talented! I would recommend this course to anyone who wants a laugh with other people who share the same passion or for those who want to perfect their sugar craft skills! I will miss this course every Tuesday evening, it's much better than Creme De La Creme 
Thanks again Charlotte, it's been an absolute PLEASURE!”

- Gemma

“Charlotte is lovely and brilliant at what she does! The courses she delivers are really fun and you get so much out of it! Definitely one to recommend.”

- Hollie

“Me and my sister had a really lovely day today on the cake decoration course! We were made to feel very welcome! Charlotte took her time to explain everything and helped us individually when we needed it! We weren't rushed, which was good for a novice like me! And Charlotte answered all of our questions, no matter how silly they seemed! Can't fault it! Brilliant! And can't wait for the next course in November and the Christmas Course in December”
