Hello!  Welcome to Rock Bakehouse.  Founded in 2011 by Nathalie I love cakes, cake decorating and love sharing our knowledge and meeting people.  I offer both online and face to face to classes.  My aim is to provide a relaxed atmosphere where you can learn all there is to know about baking, cake and cupcake decorating.  We run cake & cupcake decorating classes in London, both group and private sessions as well as online classes which you can take from wherever you are in the world.  You can view our upcoming classes here

How I started

I started selling cakes and cupcakes at markets in 2011 after being made redundant from my PR & Marketing job.  I started selling celebration , wedding cakes and cupcakes and then started classes after we found that there was a demand for accessible, friendly and affordable classes.  I now host our group classes from the beautiful Village Haberdashery shop –  6, Hardy Building, West Hampstead Square, Heritage Lane, London NW6 2BR or from my private kitchen space in Wandsworth SW18.  I also run online cake decorating classes which can be taken from wherever you are in the world.

Our online classes

I run a variety of different online classes.  These are a selection of video and workbook classes which you can buy and access straight away.  Learn from the comfort of your own home at a pace to suit you wherever you are in the world.

About our face to face classes

Whether you’re a complete beginner and have never baked a cake in your life or you’re a seasoned pro and just need a guiding hand with some specific techniques or want to take your skills to the next level we have a wide range of classes to help you out.   Unlike other classes we provide everything you need and you get to take your amazing creations home with you plus get a jam packed worksheet with all the information that we cover.    For us, our small, friendly and professional classes are really important so that you get lots out of the sessions.  We also have an online and after class shop which sells a variety of cake decorating equipment and unique kitchen textiles.

Everything is included in the price and you take home your cakes and a worksheet with recipes and tips.

We’re always happy to discuss suitable classes for you so if you have any questions or queries just give us a call or drop us an email.  Want to see what our past students say about us? Check out our testimonials page.
