What Others Have Said
‘Really excellent Red Letter Day! Great fun, Eric demostrated to the 12 of us how to create fantastic decorations for the Cupcakes, and then we all able to create our own, with all the necessary paints, glitters and icing. Amazing how professional our finished results looked! The yummy hot chocolate provided whilst we were doing this was an added bonus! Would really recommend this as a fun afternoon, with 12 personalised cup cakes to take home as the icing on the cake so to speak!’
‘The class was such a fun experience. It’s great that Eric gives the class himself, rather than just hiring somebody to do it at his place. Eric explained everything very well but with a touch of humour too. Getting to keep the aprons at the end was really great, a momento to keep long after the cupcakes are gone! I had requested before arriving that 2 of my cupcakes be gluten-free, for a family member. They mentioned this as soon as they brought out the box of cupcakes, pointing out the two GF ones. Really very thoughtful and made it extra special. I would have been very nervous about taking on any major decorating on my baking but having done the class, I would definitely be interested in getting some moulds to experiment with. Thank you Cake boy!’
‘Eric was lovely and really helpful (and patient!). It was great to get his top tips and to learn more about cupcake decorating. I left feeling really happy with what I’d produced and inspired to be a bit more adventurous in my baking! We were really well looked after and it was such a lovely experience to have!’
