I attended a private class for 3 days with Naomi last week which was just amazing! We made and stacked two cakes, one with buttercream and one with fondant (pictured) I learned so much about how to perfect my cakes. From sharp edges to keeping your cakes straight! We also made both wafer and sugarpaste flowers. Naomi has a patient teaching style which is clean and organised. I have been making cakes for many years and there is still so much to learn. Thank you Naomi, looking forward to the next one!

Came to UK for a short visit and wanted to learn about cake decoration and loved Naomi's work! So before coming here to United Kingdom I planned everything with her, what all I want to learn in specific, and she made a proper plan on how the four days would go. It wasn't easy, as I wanted to learn so much in a short time. But she made sure to cover what all I'd mention in my learning points. I took the four day private masterclass with Naomi! those four days were filled with loads of learning and new stuff which I didn't know earlier. She was super patient with me and made sure I learn everything in the correct and professional way. And gave loads of extra tips as well. Must say you have really great teaching skills.
P.s- Her private classes take place in a really cute corner of her house i.e her studio. Super bright and vibrant. <3 Way to go girl! Would love to take more classes in my next visit!

The two day private class with Naomi was by far the best thing I could have ever done. Her class surpassed my expectations. She has fantastic teaching skills; she is patient, helpful, and very generous with her intellectual experiences and knowledge. Naomi is a very talented lady and I am lucky to have had the chance to take the course with her. Her studio also had a very positive vibe and Naomi made me feel welcome and the learning environment was very friendly. I am so grateful and very excited about the future of my cake business. Thank you Naomi for your amazing support and excellent guidance to set me on the right path!

I had a private lesson with Naomi, it was one of the best experience. Well structured class. Detailed and informative. Tips you can't get from anywhere. Her patience and selflessness! She taught me everything I wanted to learn and even did more which made me realize there is more to having a private class. I will recommend a private class! She is the best and a tutor who knows her field! The best class ever! Thanks Naomi

I took a private course with Naomi and it was a fantastic investment. She gave me the confidence to create beautiful tiered buttercream and ganache cakes on my own. She was a patient and informative teacher. The day was structured perfectly: laid back yet jam packed with tips and techniques. The day-long session took place in her cosy and well-equipped studio. I felt I benefitted from a one-to-one session and received thorough coaching that I may not have received from a larger class setting. I would highly recommend a private class with Naomi to beginners, or advanced bakers looking to build on their skills.

I felt very lucky to have met Naomi in London at Peggy Porchen's class as she was such a good teacher even when we only had a one day session. Knowing that she would return to Singapore for holiday, I immediately asked to have private lessons with her.The two day sessions with Naomi was such an eye opener, learning how to use sugar paste and made beautiful flowers for my mini cakes, making chocolate ganache coating for layer cake, tips of making royal icing without a creating mess in kitchen etc.Naomi was very patience watching me piping on cookies, showing me tips on various piping skills. Her teaching method is thorough and meticulous which is very important to any student. Watching how she worked really inspires me to be a better baker.I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and will definitely have lessons with her again so I can achieve higher standard in making sugar paste flowers like hers hopefully. Thank you very much Naomi

Today's private course was absolutely great! Naomi showed and taught me lots in a very friendly, calm and clear way. She is a very good teacher and I would definitely like to book more classes with her. Her work is amazing.

I had an amazing opportunity to have a one to one private class with Naomi last month. I had always been fascinated and at the same time intimidated by sugar flowers and attending her classes has by far been my best decision. She is a great teacher and will go all the way to help you reach your potential. Within the short time she had, she managed to teach me 3 large flowers and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. She will surely put her 100% to teach n if you are committed to try and do the same you too can get amazing results. So if any of you are considering taking up classes, please go ahead :) and personally if you are interested in something like sugar craft I would recommend that you take a private lesson.
