Then last year my then tutor told us about a couple of people from our area who were going to exhibit at Cake International. I was amazed at all the cakes and one was outstanding and so beautiful it really did catch the eye. This was when I was introduced to the amazing Claire Anderson from Clairella Cakes. She makes the most wonderful creations and every one she turns out is a master piece. I left a comment to say congrats and then when Claire was running a class I went along. Then I did a second with a guest teacher Bella Baking, then I was lucky enough to get to go along for another. It was extra special as it was a lady called Jayne's birthday so we got to sing to her and share a wee glass of bubbly !
Claire's classes are so much fun, but at the same time you learn so much it is a real delight. She is calm and kind and oh so patient which at times must be hard work lol. She has a fab classroom full of light to make everyone feel like an artist. Everything is provided and you just need to turn up and get started.
Drinks flow freely along with yummy treats so if you are going forget the diet. When lunch comes around ...... where do I start lol. Wonderful array of sandwiches , fruit , cake and all sorts to pick from. All freshly cooked and laid out along with tea or coffee or many different juices so spoilt for choice.
After lunch is is back to work but all the time with much laughter and fun, making it the most relaxed day possible. I always come home with a fab cake and also more skills to add to my list, and fired up as to my next creation . People come from all over to attend the classes and its well worth it!
If you love to cake decorate you have to get along to Clairella for a class you so will not regret it at all.
