Chitty's Cakes offers a variety of classes and short courses in cake, cupcake and cookie baking and decoration. We are passionate about passing on our skills so you can be the best home baker you can be and wow your family and friends with your own creations. We can show you the basics of sugarcraft and how to make and decorate cakes, cupcakes and cookies to make them look beautiful and individual. Our classes are all suitable for beginners (although on one or two, you would get more from it if you came with a little experience), but there is also something to learn for those who bake regularly.
Classes range from 2 hours to a full day, and even a weekly month long course. They are held at our dedicated teaching studio in the Custard Factory (they really did make custard here once!), just 10 minutes' walk from Birmingham's Bull Ring and easily accessible by New Street and Moor Street train stations. Small groups (a maximum of 8) mean you are given focussed attention and get the most out of each session. All equipment & ingredients are provided and you take away everything you make, along with a help sheet so you can practice the skills at home.
Some of our classes can be booked as a private group - the most popular for this is our 2 hour Cupcake Decorating class which we regularly run for hen parties. If you have a group of 4 or more and would be interested in booking a private session of any of our classes, do get in touch as we would love to welcome your group. We don't offer any individual tuition, but there are lots of classes and dates to choose from - just see our calendar for dates.
