After years of administration and management jobs straight out of college, Shirley began to rethink her career choice and donned her chef jacket to begin her cake-designing journey. She firstly earned a Professional Certificate in Baker and Pastry Cook Training from the Vocational Training Council of Hong Kong with the Best Performance Award. Having a background in bakery techniques, she started learning cake making and decoration as a hobby which is now her passion. Shirley has completed several professional certificate courses in Royal Icing and Sugar Flower in the UK and an Advanced Clay Art course In Taiwan.

Shirley has won a Bronze Prize of Professional Wedding Cake competition in HOFEX 2013, a Gold Award of "Class C: A Floral Arrangement" in ExCel London 2015 and a Silver Award of "Class N: Small Decorative Exhibit" in Cake International Birmingham 2017.

The bunny is holding a koi fish to wish all a happy new year of the Rabbit! In this workshop, you will learn to model each part that composes the figures of a Bunny Mascot, gold ingots, tangerines (which means good luck) and a lucky bag backdrop.

Private Class Option

Perhaps the classes don't fit your schedule. Or maybe you want to learn something specific. Private classes are an excellent option. The advantage of this option is intensive or partial days and flexible hours. We can even help to suggest a project if you only have some ideas in your mind. With more one-on-one time with the instructor, work is done faster, and you can cover more topics in more detail. Our team has extensive experience teaching students at various skill levels.

🌈🌈 You can WhatsApp +852 9083-8693 or email blossomcakeshk@gmail.com to obtain a quote for a private class or schedule a lesson.
