There are all sorts of classes you can do there including some flower making classes, cupcakes to 3D cakes like the very cute Arctic Antics cake above. They range from two hours to three day courses and class sizes are capped at 6-8 people and they also offer private tuition. Founded by the lovely Linda Harden, former senior teacher at Planet Cake she is joined by Margi Carter who was one of Planet Cake's co founders and also illustrated and designed the very popular Planet Cake cookbook.

Their Foundation 1 one day courses are a great introduction to the art of cutting and ganaching a cake, covering it with fondant and achieving those elusive sharp edges. You then get to take your cake home where it will keep for one week.
