“Maxine makes the most delicious cakes. I tried a slice of the rum cake once and I had to order a cake for Christmas. My family thought it was wonderful too. Everyone said, wow that's a proper cake! It's moist but firm and has enough rum in it to get tipsy on” Miranda
"With the taste of fruits mixed with the vibrant flavours of traditional Caribbean rum, one mouthful will surely take you to paradise" Kayla

Josh Samuels - I brought this for my girlfriend as she is artistic and loves to decorate she absolutely loved it and wants to go on a higher level course. Maxine is a very good teacher who is patient and takes her time teaching you, everything you learn you will remember and you are also able to have fun on the course with decorating and learning many different ways and techniques of doing it. 5/5 for this course, would definitely go again. - Brilliant!
Janice Charles - I chose this course because I enjoy baking but I had no previous experience of decorating cakes and I was keen to learn. I found this course to be extremely enjoyable and informative. Maxine, who led the course, has been baking and decorating cakes for several years and was able to share several decorating hints and tips. Maxine is very patient and went at a steady pace to ensure I that I understood everything that she explained. After 6 hours with Maxine I was able to decorate a cake with confidence and I was very happy with the outcome. I fully recomend this course to anyone who would like to learn to decorate cakes.
