Hi Helen, between 3 of us we ate half the cake last night
We could not stop at only one piece. The chocolate was 'melt in your mouth divine' and the cake was delicious. I cannot wait to try it out at home. The chocolate course was fantastic, I loved it and could not take the smile off my face all the way home. Now I am wondering what I can do next...
Thank you for a great day. Jen xx - July 2010

Hi Helen, thank you again for today, we had a wonderful day and learnt so much.  We also ate the cake tonight and it was so delicious.  My family was really impressed. Thanks Maria - 29 July 2010

Hi Helen, these are the photos that I took last night. I think that we all did well. Thanks again for being such a great teacher. I value and appreciate you for your standards in making sugar flowers and your knowledge and wisdom in doing this. Cheers.. Michelle Vudrag - August 2009

1st Prize in Sugar Art AwardsHi Helen, I just wanted to pass on to you how impressed our dinner guests were when they saw the chocolate cake we had made in class. They couldn't believe we actually made all the decorations ourselves and even took photos of it. The cake was a real hit and tasted divine. Thanks once again it's great to learn some new skills, and hopefully I will be there for the next ABC class. Cheers for now Mike.  7th June 2009

Hi Helen & Susan,
Thank you ever so much for the most delicious fruit cake we have ever tasted. The design and style we wanted was simple and sophisticated and that is what we got, all of our family and friends admired your creation. We have frozen the top layer for our first child or 1st anniversary (whichever comes first) and will relish in the taste and experience of your cake again. Perfection!! We have attached a photo for your interest!

Kind Regards, Cherie (Ballard) & Tyler Gilbert - May 2009excellent sugar art teacher

Girls, My Cake was amazing! and it made me cry. I am sorry it has taken so long to say thank you. It honestly was everything I could have dreamed of. Everyone loved it. Mostly Myself. It also tasted sooo great. It will a big part of my 21st that I will always remember. I had never seen a cake so perfect. The detail and time you have put into it is amazing and I can't explain how much I do appreciate it. I owe you big big big time.
You both are so beautiful. Thank you so much.
