About the Course

You will have the opportunity to create and design THREE  BESPOKE cakes with Paul there every step of the way to both help and challenge you.

On Monday you will design your very own spherical cake, similar to Paul’s Shark or Puffer Fish designs. However, you will come up with a theme which could be anything from a monster to a fairytale design.
Tuesday and Wednesday, you will design a cake using a wooden internal structure similar to Paul’s Golf Bag or Easter Chick cakes. Students will have the use of power tools, but Paul is more than happy to cut the shapes if needed via a demo. This is where the magic will begin to take place as all 8 students start to create their very own dream cakes.
Thursday Friday, you will design your very own metal-supported cake similar to Paul’s Handbag Heaven or Jumping Puppy Love cakes.  By now, you will have the confidence to take a risk on your own design and even make it gravity-defying.
Paul will be on hand at all the stages and what’s so amazing about the class is you will also be learning from the other 7 students as they will be creating something completely different.

Lunch will be provided as part of the course. We will be in touch a week before the course starts to ask if there are any special dietary considerations.


The Kirkmichael hotel is just a 500m walk into the village, where an extensive menu is served. If you don’t fancy going out, then the former public bar at Starthardle Lodge has a selection of snacks and microwave meals from our honesty bar area.

Its a great place to unwind in front of the open fire and relax into the night.
