"I can't praise this class highly enough. Jacqueline is a brilliant instructor and goes into a lot of detail. The flowers you create have so many uses. I had no bother getting the equipment she uses and the gumpaste recipe is great - I gave it a shot and now make my own all the time, saving a lot of money. I highly recommend this class."
