Read this client testimonial from one of our Beginners Workshop 1 in Cape Town:


creative cakes

"I felt Carol took my creative mind to a next level, specially with the teddy bear picnic: if I new that I had to sculpture a teddy bear and tea set before enrolling, I might have had second thoughts. I don’t think the level was to advance, it would have been my perception beforehand. I definitely learned a lot more than I ever read on the internet or books that I bought.


The small handy tips are so useful, and since I have much more confidence in my creating that before. Carol is so natural in the way she is doing everything.

Thanks for a wonderful experience, and I will be in contact with you again. Please keep me updated if there are more courses to come, I will always be willing to extend my skills."


Marcelle Vosloo and Marthie le Roux

"Die werkswinkel was ongelooflik lekker.  Dit was my eerste keer wat ek met plastiek icing werk, so dit was 'n nuwe uitdaging. Baie dankie weereens vir 'n baie lekker, leersame oggend."


Elsje Human - Robertson

Workshop Reviews


"I work as a doctor in a children's HIV unit. When my nurses cut the cakes, they gave some of the kids cake and some of the figurines that I made, the kids absolutely loved it!!!! The skills that I learnt at the course brought so much joy to my patients! If I had more time on my hands I would definitely attend the cupcake course and make the patients Xmas themed cup cakes for the festive season!


Thanks again!"


Afaaf - Johannesburg




"Thank you so much for yesterday class, i thoroughly enjoyed it. My nephews (aged 6 and 2 years) couldn't contain their excitement when they saw the cakes."


Melanie - Cape Town




"Please thank Carol for a wonderful and entertaining class on Sunday!!

Hanlie - Cape Town




"The workshop was an eye opener, a very creative one indeed, it made me feel like a little girl that I once was.The joy of looking at the final products of the cakes that I baked myself, wow its all unbelievable.Thanks to Creative Cakes for helping me express my creativity."



Linda - Johannesburg


"Hope you are doing well. Really enjoyed the workshop and all my family& friends were extremely impressed that a complete novice could produce those decorations & cakes within one day. Not only did I learn to do the figures presented in the workshop but the techniques learnt has also left me with the knowledge & skill to do some different figurines and has left me with
100's of ideas for other cakes & cupcakes to make in future."


Valerie - Johannesburg




"The workshop was fantastic, and worth the distance to get to it! I would
absolutely love to do another workshop/s:"
