Private classes are available on limited dates by prior arrangement. We will discuss with you in detail what you want to achieve during your time with us, whether it’s refining your recipes or perfecting your piping, we will come up with a learning programme that works for you.

Following your consultation, we will send you timings schedule and content breakdown which will be agreed in advance of your session with us. Our fully equipped bakery and shop means we have a huge array of technical equipment on hand for you to use at your disposal.

Courses at our Shop
If you choose to undertake your private tuition at our professional bakery and courses studio in Chelmsford in Essex, you will find us conveniently located on the outskirts of the town centre. Multiple car parks are available very nearby if you are driving, otherwise Chelmsford is just a 30 minute train ride from London Liverpool Street station if you decide to travel by train, and the shop is just a few minutes walk from the rail and bus station.

Courses at your home
Choosing to take private tuition in your own home can take the stress out of travelling and also enable you to choose times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, even keep the kids at home with you whilst you train. Often the vast majority of equipment can be brought along to you, even ready baked cakes if needed or we can bring tins to bake with you. Let us know what you want to learn and we can discuss options with you.
