One on One Classes

Private classes can accommodate up to 3 people for the per hour cost (ie for the same price you can bring a friend or two). When you book, please send through the info on what you want to learn in the time.  Julie will guide you on how much time you need, what you need to bring (or the cost for the Studio to supply ingredients).  You can make use of all the Studio’s equipment.  These classes are available for a few Saturdays a year and any available weekday morning.  Private classes are billed at R500 per hour.

Parties and Team Building

The Studio offers a variety of party and team building options.  We have a team of great (fun!) people that can make your event something special.    

Kids parties:

Perfect for kids of all ages.  We can come to your home or we can host the party at our alternate venue (NG Kerk Hall in Wynberg).  We bring everything needed and the kids have a ball decorating cookies or cupcakes along a theme, then they have their goodies to take home with them.  We select age appropriate activities for the children and duration is anywhere from 1 – 3 hours depending on the age of the children and the budget.  If you want snacks, a cake, and/or party packs we can do that as well.  And before we leave, we make sure everything is spotless in your kitchen. 

Parties for grown-ups and team building events:

To be honest, not really that different from kid’s parties!  We can come to you, or you can come to us (Julie’s home can accommodate 8 people during the week or we can book the church hall for larger groups).  We provide everything, and everyone has a ball.  We can provide classy snacks and party packs too!  One of our favourite team building exercise is getting everyone together to work on one large tiered cake (“Nailed it” Challenge)

Perfect for hen parties, bun-in-the-oven parties, birthdays and those sticky work situations where you just need to laugh over a cup of tea and cake!  In fact you don’t really need an excuse!

Classes in other towns and cities

Julie is more than happy to travel to your city or town to present classes and courses.  If you would like Julie to come to you let us know and we will make it happen, we charge a daily rate for a full day class.  Let us know if you are interested and we will send you a quote.

Cake Decorating and Baking Advice Service

Need help with your cakes?  We can suggest recipes, techniques and equipment that might help. We have a (VERY active) WhatsApp group that you are welcome to join using this link.  We recommend muting the group, but it is a great place to get help from other bakers, suggestions and support!  We also publish our monthly specials and new class flyers there.
