Just loved the CakeFlix Master Programme. It pushes you to perhaps try techniques that you’ve never attempted before and the end result is stunning!! Loved the personal touch with feedback from Paul on every single assignment. Highly recommend it!

CakeFlix Master is money well spent, not just for a work credential but also for a personal achievement too. The whole program covers everything anyone could need to be a top class cake maker and cake decorator.  With Paul’s brilliant feedback and plenty of determination, all my hard work paid off.

This is a great course to encourage you to make the best of your skills and learn plenty more. Paul delivers the course in relaxed easy to follow steps and with regular feedback, it was like having him in the kitchen. The course is well laid out, easy to follow and, although challenging at times, the sense of achievement is immense.
