Perfect Cakes & Bakes
Tell us what cakes you dream of eating, and we teach you how to make those dreams come true.
Carol and Miranda hold a passion for baking the perfect cakes. Carol was the head baker at some wonderful cafes across Somerset, and Miranda has always loved an excellent crumb.
Cake making is no doubt an art. It is all about weighing, whisking, beating and finding the perfect marriage of textures and flavours. We make sure that you learn the 4 different cake mixing techniques including melting method for batters, rubbing in for buns, whisking and folding with egg white for flourless cakes and the creaming method for sponges. We make fillings including a blackcurrant and blueberry jam and passionfruit curd. Two of our favourite showstoppers on this course. We show you how to match filling with cake. How to layer cakes and simple piping methods.
If you wish to brush up on specific skills and techniques, or learn something new, we love a challenge. We have had guests wanting to make simple rock buns, scones and cookies. Other guests prefer to put us through our paces and want to learn the more technical bakes like profiteroles, cinnamon buns, brioche, tiered cakes and more.
We enjoy teaching novice bakers and we thrive off finding new recipes and techniques to wow the most skilled home bakers. It is always a fun-filled, hands on day out. Baking gets extremely competitive as we all know after years of watching the Great British Bake Off. You name it we teach you how to bake it.
Be it a fun family cake-off, with chocolate cake making competitions, or a fancy biscuits and pastries day in the kitchen, we like to offer originality, and recipes that work.
We can teach you how to make your very own signature cream tea to wow your guests at home.
We have a brilliant repertoire of Gluten Free cakes if you want a day out practicing with GF flour.
