Baking Business Skills Classes
Learn everything you need to get your baking business idea off the ground!
What's It All About?
If you need more help with your baking business or you're looking to begin then I can help you! I will provide you with a full programme of information, know-how, advice, tips and tricks to give you and your business a running start. It can be tricky juggling motherhood, family life, your home, social events and personal time (not to mention the endless to-do list) - you might be thinking how on earth am I going to find time for my OWN business, I can hardly do everything as it is! But if you are really passionate about it and feel that running your own baking business, either full time or as a side project, is right for you, then - guess what - you CAN fit it in! I will guide you through all the fiddly bits, from the practical elements like registering, getting your taxes right and streamlining your paperwork, to the fun stuff like finding time for creativity and, the all important, making MONEY!
I have many years of experience as a self-taught home baker. Pretty & Cookie was founded in 2012 and my creations have since been in the hands of celebrities! I have maintained a 5 star Food Hygiene Rating (FSA) and I'm proud to say my customers are consistently thrilled with my bespoke cookies. I also provide cakes and bakes for artisan cafes across London. I am married with two children, 5 and 3, and I live in Uxbridge, Hillingdon.
