I am qualified in cake decorating and flour confectionery and have been teaching adults in and around Devon for 36 years. As a master baker I am always eager to inspire people in this fascinating craft.I have a wealth of experience and knowledge including; how to make royal icing, sugar flowers, marzipan, chocolate and also modelling and sugarpaste work. I love to revive techniques I learnt as an apprentice baker & confectioner. Many students who attended my course have now opened their own cake businesses, however my main focus is that my classes are fun for everyone where learning new skills.Margaret Brooking
