Julie’s Cake Studio

Please note: In-person classes are suspended until further notice

Julie’s offers a wide range of courses and classes for adults and children to learn all aspects of cake decorating. All classes are hands on which means you have your products to take home with you. We have once-off workshops and a variety of part-time courses. All classes are suitable for beginners (unless otherwise mentioned).

Online zoom classes

Our brand new Zoom classes are launching in July 2020 and will replace our in person Saturday workshops for the remainder of 2020. Bite-sized classes and only R150 per person, limited to 6 people.

PArt time courses

Wedding cake course is aimed at beginners that want to start their own business making wedding cakes. We focus on all aspects of decorating and starting a home-based business.

Novelty cake course 1 is aimed at beginners starting a business making kids and novelty cakes. We focus on all aspects of decorating and starting a home-based business.

Novelty cake course 2 is a course that follows on from our Wedding cake course and/or Novelty cake course, this course will take your cakes to the next level. Basic skills such as covering a cake with fondant is required for this course.

Weekend Fundamental Course is run for one very intensive weekend, and is a hybrid between the Wedding cake course and Novelty cake course as we only offer this course once per year.

Intermediate flower making course is a course that focuses exclusively on making sugar flowers. This follows on from one of our basic courses but is suitable for people with a basic knowledge of sugar flowers.

Learn to bake course is a perfect starting point for people that want to go back to the kitchen. This course has days for pastry, bread, cakes, cookies and sweets.

Once off workshops

Four hour workshops, covering a variety of subjects with a changing schedule.

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.    

Organise your own “Nailed it” party! Suitable for ALL ages!
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.

Custom Cakes

We will bake your dream cake for you!  Just ask for a quote! 

Online Class Aims

Over the past few months we have been working on launching an online class platform for people that are far away.  Please keep in touch as we are hoping to launch our first course soon!
