With 10 years experience of making cakes and bakes professionally, and running a baking business I know the struggle is real. I’m now offering Baking Masterclasses and Business Mentoring sessions to help you become a better baker and business owner.
In the last 10 years I have run a home business, a shop, a bakery, Tea Rooms and market stalls. I have literally baked and decorated thousands of cakes. I have written hundreds of recipes. I have a Diploma in Marketing and have learnt and changed as my business have changed. I have taken courses, done workshops and all things both baking and business.
I therefore believe I’m in a pretty good position to help you by offering Baking Masterclasses and Business Mentoring either in your home or via video call.
I am therefore opening up my time to help others. Whether you are a home baker looking to transition into running a small scale business. Or a business owner just starting out and struggling to work around everything else. Or maybe your business has been running for a while and you are looking to scale up.
But maybe its the art of baking and decorating you want to get better at? Are you looking wanting to bake a better sponge, cover your cake flawlessly or make pretty roses?
I’ve been there, I’ve done it, I’ve learnt so so much over the last 10 years, and I am wanting to help the next generation of bakers.
Cake Business Mentoring
1 to 1 Session
Up to 3 hours where we sit and go through everything about your business.
From the information you give me we will look at your current business, your Ideal Client, Marketing Channels, Website, Production and Delivery…or wherever you feel you particularly need help.
These sessions can be done via video call or in person in your home or mine (once the Covid-19 Lockdown has ended).
Cost – £150
Once you have had your initial 1 to 1 session, you can opt for a further 4 hourly calls. Either weekly, monthly, or whenever you need them.
We will follow-up on all the things we discussed in your 1 to 1, find out how things are progressing, discuss where things are getting stuck and working our way through any problems you’re encountering.
Follow-ups will be conducted by video call.
Cost of 4 Follow-up Video Calls – £150
If you feel you need extra time with me, I am happy to meet with you via Video Call or in person to follow-up and help you blow up any problems you’re encountering.
Cost of Extra Time
In Person – £45 per hour
Via Video Call – £40 per hour
Learn to Bake
I am pretty obsessed with baking the perfect cake, and have honed my skills and recipes over many, many years to make the best I can. I am now offering 1 to 1 Baking Masterclasses that can be held either in your home or via Video Call.
A 1.5 hour Masterclass should be enough to bake and present 2 items. Although we will always start with the most complicated (or the one you want to learn the most), and see what time allowance there is for a further bake.
If there is something that’s not on the list, but you’re itching to know how to bake it….just let me know!!!
Learn to bake in your own home.
I will bring all the ingredients you need to make up to 2 items from the list below. I will provide you with an equipment list prior to the appointment, ask what equipment you have, and will bring anything extra we may need.
You can even invite a couple of friends and make a bit of a party of it.
1.5 hour Masterclass within 5 miles of Epsom Down Race Course – £80
1.5 hour Masterclass within 10 miles of Epsom Down Race Course – £100
Extra Guests (up to 3 people in total) – £25 per person
I will arrive 10-15 minutes before the Masterclass starts to set up. Clearing and washing up is sadly not part of the session.
In Person Baking will resume after the Covid-19 Lockdown has ended.
Via Video Call
It’s not as mad as it sounds!!!
I can connect to you via a Video Call and we can have a 1 to 1 baking masterclass.
I will bake and you will bake, and between us we can discuss everything that’s going on.
I will provide a list of ingredients and equipment 5 days before the session, which means, if you can’t get something on the list I can give you alternatives if possible.
The Masterclass will last 2 hours, and you can have up to 2 other people in the kitchen with you asking questions, so why not make a bit of a party of it.
A 2 hour Masterclass should be long enough time to make up to 2 bakes from the list below.
2 hour Masterclass via Video Call – £60
List of bakes……..choose 2 to start with
- Classic Victoria Sandwich filled with Jam and Whipped Buttercream.
- Chocolate Chip Cookies……Crunchy with gooey insides, who can resist.
- Get one of your 5 a day in a cake, with a rich moist Carrot Cake. Finished with a classic cream cheese frosting.
- Classic Fruit or Cheese Scones – light, fluffy and perfect for afternoon tea.
- Classic Lemon Drizzle Cake, made using freshly zested and juiced lemons and topped with a classic lemon sugary crunch.
- Cute as Cupcakes. 8 Cupcakes made with my own light fluffy recipe and decorated with whipped buttercream. These can be any flavour you want to make them.
- The Perfect coffee and walnut cake. It’s a marmite one, but if you love it, you will adore my rich coffe cake filled with whipped coffee buttercream.
I love the idea of teaching the next generation of bakers!!!
Do you want your kids to learn how to bake? Or maybe you’re looking for something a little different for a small party?
I am offering classes in your own home for up to 6 children (plus 1 adult present please) to learn to bake. They will learn everything from weighing out the ingredients, to cutting up and trying their bakes.
A group of up to 6 children (2 per mixing bowl) can learn how to bake 2 of the following in your own kitchen:
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Rocky Road
- Plain Sweet Scones
I will bring all the ingredients you’ll need. I will provide you with an equipment list and anything you don’t have I’ll bring along with me.
Each session should last approx 1.5 hours. Sadly cleaning and washing up isn’t included in the price, but teaching children to clear up after themselves is a valuable lesson!
Cost for up to 6 Children Baking (2 per mixing bowl)
Within 5 miles of Epsom Downs Racecourse – £100
Within 10 miles of Epsom Downs Racecourse – £120
Childrens Baking Classes will resume after the Covid 19 Lockdown
If my baking Masterclasses and Business Mentoring sessions don’t quite suit your needs, and you’re looking for something a bit different, please get in touch and we can talk it through.
