Set on 2 floors, we have a light airy kitchen with a fabulous island unit design.  This island unit has a purple sparkly glass worktop finish which makes it ideal for working with sugarpaste and fondant especially when decorating larger cakes.  Our students each get to use their own Kenwood Mixer, weighing scales and all other equipment.  We want you to gain the most you can from our classes and using your own set of equipment in the kitchen means you can fully concentrate at all times.

Upstairs we have have a large cupcake decorating area where you will make all the decorations and work with the sugarpaste and fondant.  Those classes that don't involve any baking will be hosted upstairs and we can comfortably teach 8 students in our class space.  Smaller groups may bake and decorate in the kitchen area.  We also have our very own aprons for you to wear!
