HALF DAY 1:2:1 Masterclass


This 1:2:1 masterclass is held for a half day and is structured around what you would like to learn, in order to develop your skills and bring confidence to your cake decorating. It doesn’t matter what level of skill you are currently at, the day is specially tailored and designed for you. The day starts with a big cup of tea or coffee and a chat about which areas you are wanting to develop.

What better way to describe this day than someone who has already attended a 1:2:1 Masterclass.

Testimonial from Bob

“Today, I had the pleasure of a 1:2:1 masterclass with Jo (a Christmas gift from my partner). I am a keen home baker who has wanted, for some time, to improve my (very basic and rustic) cake decorating skills. Jo communicated with me before the day to discuss what I wanted to achieve from my time with her, so the day was designed around me and what a day I had as we worked through the process of decorating a four-layer cake. Jo’s website contains many photographs which give testimony to her cake making expertise. I can add that she is a really lovely lady with an abundant willingness to share her knowledge. I learned how to properly prepare my cakes and cover them with sugar paste complete with nice sharp corners. No more tilting cakes for me and no more textured finishes simply because I don’t know how to apply a smooth one. I learned about the different types of sugar paste and the properties and appropriate use of each. I learned how to make roses, rose buds and textured leaves and how to add a dusting of colour to give them life, so much so that my daughter thought they were real roses! Best of all, I got to bring home the fruits of my labour, the only trouble is, it looks too good to eat. Eventually, I will put a knife through it but not until I have admired it for a little longer. I learned so much from the day. Skills that can be expanded as far as my imagination allows. Jo answered every question my inquisitive mind put to her, in a simple way that I could understand and with no regard to keeping trade secrets secret. I took away so many simple but clever little tips, including one about keeping a pop sock filled with cornflour in my decorating kit. An excellent, practical, informative and enjoyable day.”
