This course was amazing! The teacher was very organized/structured with the day to day activities and went at the perfect pace in which our class was able to take in lots of information in and we didn’t just wait around. The Teacher was very kind, funny, and was able to explain everything clearly. I would definitely recommend Fair Cakes and would want to do it again!!
I attended the 5 day Baking and Cake Decorating course in September 2023. What a wonderful experience and well worth the travel down from the north of England to Brighton. The setting and the delivery of the course were perfect. Students are given top quality products to work with. The pace of the course was just right, steady enough to follow but jam packed from start to finish with methods and tips. I can't believe how much I learnt and it exceeded all my expectations. Despite me not having any baking experience, Uma's skill in demonstrating and guiding the class through basics of baking and icing enabled me to leave the course with a bag full of amazing cookies and cakes! I would highly recommend attending this course as it has provide me with confidence to experiment and create my own cakes in the future. Thank you to Uma for all your patience!
Knowledgeable, kind and friendly
I took two courses earlier this year, and both were exactly what I was looking for. The buttercream flower class was great, I just wish I had more time to practice, as this is clearly an art form. Hot Off The Press Caking (see photos) left me with an insanely heavy cake to take home and share with my family. (Thankfully we were celebrating a birthday because this is a monster.)The techniques taught helped me make 3 wedding cakes so far this year. Broken down, the expense is not that much, and understandable once you see what's involved in running the classes. Still, you have to really want to take the class to warrant the time, effort, and dough. I'm definitely going to try and go back.
Excellent place to learn the art of cakes and sugar flowers
Just completed the baking and decorating class and loved every minute of it. Highly recommended.
We attended the buttercream flowers class. It was excellent - well run, great instructions, amazing final product. Learned a lot. Class is perfect size and kitchen is great. Shikhita is a great teacher and has built an amazing business. Worth the cost for the class.
I recently attended the 5 day baking and decorating course. It was a truly enjoyable and fun class, lots of knowledge shared and a great introduction to cake making. We learnt a lot about buttercream and ganache, walked away with some really good recipes and 3 lovely cakes. Everything was well explained and demonstrated every step of the way, with individual help given when needed.
I can warmly recommend this course to all beginners like myself.
