Back to how I started, with our NEW Cake and Buttercream Masterclass
I've always enjoyed all things cakes, but my obsession as a baker came when I committed to making my friend, Deepika's wedding cake.
I had never made such an elaborate cake, let alone one for such an important event - what was I thinking!?!
As nervous and uncertain as I was, I was ready to do all I could to gift a beautiful cake to the happy couple. I spent countless hours testing recipes and practicing my piping skills in my teeny kitchen in my tiny London flat.
The wedding cake was a hit and I picked up my first customers at the wedding (even though I didn't have a business yet).
The experience ignited my passion for cake. I enrolled in one baking course and then another and then another. The ones I loved the most (and really helped me boost my skills) were the week-long intensive courses.
Having the chance to come into an industrial kitchen for weeks at a time, using expert tools and getting to experiment new techniques all under the guidance of expert chefs opened the door to my new-found baking dreams.
That's why I'm so excited that we'll begin offering our 3 & 5 Day Masterclass series this fall and monthly into 2022!
