Tutor Samples for Summer term weekly classes
Tutor Samples for Summer term weekly classes

Sorry for my absence! It has been rather busy here.


So what have I been up to? Well, the summer term weekly classes have now drawn to a close for the summer, and what a fabulous term we had. Above are the subjects for the six classes. (One picture per weekly class), and all my students produced wonderful work.


If you are interested in joining us in September, then visit the website as classes are now available to book.


What else have I been up to?


Read on to find out.




Class at the Renshaw Academy


I am always thrilled to teach at such a stunning venue. I know I say it everytime, but the students feedback back up my opinions. It is a state of the art venue, with everything you could possibly need, and you are beautifully looked after by the wonderful staff there. (Did I mention the fabulous lunch? Maybe once or twice.....................)

Oh Katy!


I love creating tutorials for Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft magazine, and this month was no exception. The August issue holds my seaside themed piece entitled "Oh Katy what have you done!"

Katy is my little modelling character with her own series. We have seen Bridesmaid Katy, (a new class being held in Henleys Cake Company, Trowbridge), Christmas Katy (Previously seen at the Saracino Display for Cake International), and Skater Katy which was the front cover for the ICES newsletter.

Here I show her as a full body armature which can be lifted free of the design and placed anywhere you wish. Click this link to buy your copy.

Classes at Cake art Creations - The Studio


It was a pleasure to return to this fabulous studio owned by the talented Lynda Gilbey and teach the little house brownie for the first and only time, alongside the popular wedding wafer paper flowers.


I am thrilled that it was so popular, I will be returning again in September for little Froben and in November for a new David Austin wafer paper rose.


For more information and to book, visit their website on this link, but for now, here are the fabulous results from the classes in July.

See you soon

Welcome to my Blog.

 

Anyone who has been to one of my classes or Demonstrations knows that I am passionate about my craft.  I wholeheartedly believe that knowledge should be shared, so if I know something, I will happily tell you.

 

This includes my love of what I call the History of Sugarcraft in our lifetime.  

 

I started cake decorating in 1995, learning from books and from attending British Sugarcraft Guild meetings with all the fabulous demonstrators, so my wish, is to share information about those that made it possible of the UK to create the cakes that we make today.

 

This Blog was created to share a little of that history along with blogposts with a little info about what is happening lately in the world of cake too.

 

So I hope we will see you here again
