Courses | One to Ones
I actually always get a little bit nervous of my One to One classes ☺ I don’t know why because 99% of the time they are just brilliant and I always go home buzzing. I suppose it’s because it’s one person you are spending 4 hours with and making 4 hours worth of conversation. Now for me and my gang of best friends this is an absolute doddle hahaha. Fran and I can spend 8 hours with each other and the nattering doesn’t stop. But for someone you’ve never met before can be quite difficult especially if they aren’t very chatty. I had one lady that probably said 4 words in the entire 4 hours (longest 4 hours of my life) I can talk the hind legs off a donkey as most of my One to One students will tell you.
I like to think that’s what makes them feel comfortable, I consider myself to be a down to earth ‘normal’ person hahaha. I’m not a professional baker, no qualifications in baking. I’m actually a fully qualified beauty therapist and nail technician😀and mother of 5😊
I’ve had many students arrive at my cake studio looking like rabbits caught in the headlights! And quite scared to be honest😦 after speaking with them to put them at ease I soon realise why! They often tell me when they’ve attended other classes that the tutor is very dictorial and critical….. this is shocking for me to hear. The way I perceive it is, it’s a compliment that they have chosen to come to ME and pay a lot of money to come to ME.. so in return it is my obligation and pleasure to teach them as much as humanly possible in that 4 hours and more than anything else enjoy it.
I am asked why it’s expensive for a 1:1?
My 1:1 price is purely based on what I can earn in that day if I was piping orders. It isn’t just a case of me turning up 5 mins before you arrive. It’s an hour +prep to get everything in place. Bake the cupcakes, make buttercream. Get the food for snacks etc. Then teach for 4 hours which actually always, always goes over. Then the 1.5 – 2 hours clear up and deep clean. I don’t make my classes any longer than that because it’s too much information to take in. I don’t ever hold back on my secrets. I even tutor you to start your own business and what you need to put in place. So that’s why it’s the price it is.
I love it when a One to One is shared with two best friends…double the fun! I am often asked do I charge more for it? No, I never mind people sharing between them.
In fact, I’ve had two wonderful ladies in today for a One to One class (well 1:2) one of the ladies was one of my customers from last year, I made her wedding bouquets 💐 we had the best day and they produced amazing work, one of the ladies hadn’t even picked up a piping bag before.. I’m so proud of them both.
One of the ladies asked me why I share all of my secrets?
This is what I think sets me apart from other tutors. It is my ultimate goal for all of my students to be successful. If I didn’t explain how I do absolutely everything then they are not going to succeed and that is a reflection on me. I have hundreds of students online now and the work they are producing is beyond amazing. So in turn makes me super proud that I helped that journey. May sound obnoxious but that’s how I feel.
If you’d like to come for One to One don’t be nervous we are going to have a ball 🙌🏻
Love your classes and what you have taught me.
You are very easy to talk to and our classes have been a blast, covering alot of subjects. Haha.
You are a very talented lady and lucky you live on my door step.
You have a fantastic team behind you.
See you for a cuppa soon. X

My 12 year old daughter is starting to get into doing cakes and cupcakes. She loves you bouquets of cupcakes. How do we get some of you video’s while we are on a very tight budget and quarantined?
There are lots of free tutorials on Jane’s Youtube send us an email at email@example.com x
I love to take courses with you but I’m all the way in another side of the world (Laos) plus the budget is quite tight paying in dollars or Euro
Online would be perfect for you then x x Jane x
Are you offering 1:1 courses? I think it would really suit me. I’m a florist and it’s been a tough couple of years and I think I could learn a lot from you 🙌 🧁
Hi Jackie, I will be later in the year once my granddaughter is born x
