  1. Eris Moris


    Lovely course for beginner cake makers. I’ll definitely recommend this course.

  2. 5

    Really enjoy to do this course.

  3. Recommended!!


    Easy to understand. Thanks

  4. Easy to follow


    Recipes provided here are explained in details.

  5. For the beginners


    Good for the beginners. But I expected more topics to be covered.

  6. Great course for a strong foundation


    Made my foundation strong. Now I am searching for an advanced course.

  7. Professional course and professional certificate


    Planning to buy another course. Coursegate is great!

  8. Cake course


    Superb course, so easy to understand so clear and concise.. I have learnt so much and cant wait to get started
    Not sure what happends once completed, and I cant find fondant receipies which I understand are available
    Also I noticed that once a section is completed, you cant go back and print off the receipes (where they are available)
    I have also posted questions as I went along and cant find any replies!
    I understand I get a certificate but cant find that!!

    But thank you so much for this … its been great!!!

  9. Great starting course for complete beginners


    I’m not a complete beginner to cake baking and decorating but found lots of useful information throughout the course. I would have liked to have seen more uses of the frostings and seen the finished result applied to the cakes and some decorating techniques as is implied in the course title. However, it gives good visual representation of what the frostings and cakes should look like at varying stages. This would be a great course for absolute beginners. There are printable recipes included for the cakes but not for the frostings and some measurements are missing from the video. Overall, a good course but would not have paid £175.

  10. Good Course


    This is a great course, please bear in mind that the recipes are American so the names of things will be different, i.e. All purpose flour = plain flour in the UK.

    It is great for beginners and those wanting a refresher, I found the course via a Wowcher deal which cost £9. I would not have spent £175 on this course as I feel you could find out a lot of this information via YouTube or by just a bit of Googling.

    The videos are short and concise, much better than sitting pages of writing or hours of tutorials. The documents are also great to print out and keep.

    All in all a great little course.

  11. excellent theoretical course


    I found this course really excellent, the teacher was really clear in the explanations. Everything seems easy to do but in reality you can see that the sign has a lot of experience and practicality. The only thing I would recommend is to add the recipes because those who are foreigners like me wrapped do not know all the names of the ingredients so it is difficult to understand … anyway I recommend this course I hope to be able to follow others

  12. cake baking


    loved learning all the different aspects to cake decorating and baking.

    cant wait to go to the next level.

  13. Cake baking,decorating and frosting training course


    Very good course, explained well. Ideal for beginners

  14. 4

    I thought it was going to show how to decorate a bit more like sugarpaste flowers etc.

  15. Leo Mason


    There is a lot of material in certain classes. The cake decorating and frosting training was a fantastic course with plenty of handouts and video tutorials.

  16. Harley Thompson


    Up to this point, everything appears to be excellent.

  17. Niamh Shorf


    This is an excellent introduction to cake decoration and frosting. I loved how they discusses different tricks.

  18. Pollard Wiskey


    The course quality is great. Though I struggled a bit at the beginning for the login issues, but The course was so satisfying it nullifies that bad experience.

  19. Madeleine Hudson


    Excellent quality, budget friendly and a fantastic course. Thank you for offering this one!

  20. Chirs Morgan


    It is an informative and extensive course with well-explained modules that you can practice at your own speed. I would highly suggest it.

  21. Isaac Reeves


    This course is good. The contents are easy and understandable. I’ll recommend to add some more advanced techniques.

  22. Daisy Bradley


    The frosting methods shown in this course are effective and fun to do. I enjoyed this course a lot.

  23. Zak Hobbs


    I have come across so many decorating techniques and ideas in this course. I would suggest the beginners to take the course for building a solid cake decorating foundation.
