Finishing Touches is proud to announce the opening of The Studio, a lovely homely venue where you can learn the art of cake decorating and associated crafts. It sits above the shop in St Mary Street, Thornbury and can accommodate up to nine students.

Courses are mainly delivered by Dee of Dees Cakes who is a multiple Gold medal award winner at Cake International, held at the NEC every year.  Dee is an experienced cake artist who can tackle any cake to a high standard.  Dee is praised for her endless patience and motivation - she has a lovely disposition and every student is pleased with the outcome of their work when leaving a course.  Many who attend Dee's courses, book on others.  Guest tutors also deliver courses, such as Sarah Jones from The Chocolate Strawberry, Nikki Bradley of Out of This World Cakes, and Fiona Hardy from Cupcake Delight.

Courses are for all levels and a range of skills will be covered in the extensive programme. Details of courses are available on the Cake School website. You can also book online. If you would like to be included on the mailing list, please email Liz via Regular mailings will be sent out and you can pick and choose which course appeals to you.


All courses are fully-equipped – you do not have to bring anything – just yourself. Light refreshments are included in the course price.


Children’s parties, hen and corporate events, can also be booked.
