Cake Baking and Decorating Student

“My aim was to improve on my baking skills and learn new techniques. I've learnt to use room temperature ingredients, not to over mix, how to use the cut and fold technique and that not all of the cake batter needs to go into a mixer. My cakes are now moist and the different recipes I have learnt throughout the course are always a hit with family and friends. I am enjoying the class and cannot wait to develop the skills I have already built.”
