To give you an idea of what it's like, I want to share with you this beautiful and kind review from a lovely lady called Jo.

"What a fantastic way to spend a few hours! Have just finished my first private workshop with Fiona from Moo Moo Cakes and have come away feeling a sense of pride and achievement. I went to her with a specific brief wanting to improve on frosting techniques and try my hand at piping but learnt so much more. She excelled in her training methods and was able to explain not just how she does things but why and also how to troubleshoot should something go wrong. A great way to learn more from someone I would regard as the best in their field. I’ll be back."

A little bit about my ingredients... 

True to say that I am a little bit obsessive about my ingredients. For example, I use unrefined sugars in my bakes,  they have more flavour and are better for you (all of my recipes are reduced in sugar) I always use organic butter, flour and milk. My eggs are free range and from Suffolk. After all, it's no secret. If you want to make a delicious cake you must use delicious ingredients.

Chief Baker & Cake Maker 

Hi, I am Fiona, Chief Baker and award winning Cake Maker at Moo Moo Cakes. I have baked cakes and wedding cakes for Michelin star chefs and regularly judge baking awards and competitions and you can often see me at shows doing demonstrations. I love working with my students to help them develop their baking and cake decorating skills. If you want to improve your 'cakey' skills why not send me an email and let's put together a course that will take your baking to the next level. 


All of my baking and cake decorating courses are held in my country kitchen in Cavendish, Suffolk. A historical and chocolate box village situated in West Suffolk right on the Essex and Suffolk border. I have had students travel from all over East Anglia but largely I am best suited for people relatively near me who live in Essex and Suffolk. I regularly get students form areas such as Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Colchester, Chelmsford and the surrounding villages. I also sometimes provide group training courses and demonstrations for schools and associations, in these instances we can arrange that I travel to you. 


I’ve recently had the good fortune to spend the day with the lovely Fiona having a private tutorial. I’m very much an amateur baker but enjoy making cakes and wanted to be able to make my own cakes for special occasions. My main problem area was with decorating and by the end of it I walked away with a perfectly iced three tier cake.

Fiona was really welcoming and I felt completely at ease as we started the day discussing what I usually do and what I needed advice on. We then made the cake from scratch with Fiona explaining at every step of the way what ingredients and equipment she uses and why, along with handy little tips to get the perfect result. We also practiced some different icing methods whilst the cakes were in the oven so she uses every opportunity to make the most of the time.

I feel like I have gained so much knowledge and confidence and was able to put everything I’d learnt into practice a few days later for my daughter’s birthday cake which was the most successful one I’ve ever done - no sinking in the middle and no crumbling when trying to ice it!!

Thank you Fiona, I would definitely do your course again to learn even more and I would highly recommend the tutorial to anyone with an interest in cake making.
