Feedback from previous participants:

What a great morning spent at Wee Buns Cookery School. From the moment you walk through the door the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Mary Anne made the Cake Decorating Course easy to follow and understand. I’m definitely more confident in baking cakes and decorating them. The setting and views are amazing too. I really could not recommend Wee Buns Cookery School enough for any baking skill you want to learn or perfect.

I attended a cake making and decorating class in June 2021. It was brilliant, Mary-Anne is very welcoming and willing to answer any questions. Great fun and lots of learning!
