I attended a hand painting class and have to say that this was one of the nicest and most friendliest classes I have ever attended. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming and I was made to feel like part of the family. Sarah was calm, and explained everything in detail in a way that was very inspiring and she is a born teacher. I will definitely be back and highly recommend The Chocolate Strawberry to anyone.

«I spent a lovely day with Sarah learning the basics of hand painting on large cakes. She is an open, friendly teacher who is encouraging and patient. Having never painted before (well not since school!) I was surprisingly pleased with my efforts and Sarah took some lovely photos of my finished cake. All in all i would highly recommend taking a class with Sarah, oh and she provides lovely cake and lunch too!«

«I have now visited Sarah at the chocolate strawberry twice, both times to master the art of hand painting on both cupcakes and a larger dummy cake. Sarah is both friendly and informative having a wide knowledge on the subject, you are immediately put at ease and made very welcome.
On both visits the sun was shining so we enjoyed lunch in her lovely garden. Not only did I learn lots but I feel I have made a friend in Sarah and I still keep in touch with some of the other ladies I met there too. Highly recommended.«

«There is no better way to spend half or even a full day than at The Chocolate Strawberry. I first visited Sarah around 18 months ago and have returned a couple of times more. The teaching is second to none — her style and approach is clean and professional, but infectious too. She has helped me to establish my own ‘way’ in cake, perhaps without even knowing it. Not only does she share her knowledge and business experience freely, she makes a mean, delicious lunch too. Chilled white wine on a hot day served in the garden…. nothing better.«

«Thankyou for the most amazing day. I had such great fun, learnt so much and enjoyed the whole day. To top it of a lovely lunch xxx thank you xxx (Sophie)«

«I was very lucky yesterday to spend a day with the very lovely Sarah Jones of The Chocolate Strawberry. The day was a mixture of learning how to hand paint onto cakes, how she approaches design, advertising, marketing and running a successful business. All very exciting as I plan the next chapter for The Cakeri! And I officially love painting on cakes. Watch this space for lots more!«

«Hi Sarah, I just wanted to thank you for creating such a beautiful cake for our big day. We were absolutely blown away when we saw it, the detail and care that obviously went into it was astounding. Everyone commented on it, telling us repeatedly how beautiful (and later, how delicious) it was! Thank you, The Newlywed Brintons. Xx«

«Reeeeally lovely day today learning how to cover and hand paint a large cake — Would highly recommend taking a class with Sarah… She’s very friendly, patient and has a wealth of knowledge to share. (Emma Myers)«

«Hi Sarah, thank you for the amazing classes on Saturday. I learnt SO much and can’t wait to start using my new skills! Hope to see you again soon x (Sheree)«

«I have learned so much from you and would like to thank you for everything you’ve done for me this year:
• patiently answered sooooo many questions
• made an extra space for my daughter in your Windsor Emporium hand-painting class in June this year during our unforgettable trip to your beautiful country and
• for being so gracious in being willing to make an arrangement with me re selling me your hand-painting guides for my ladies parties.

Thank you Sarah! I don’t take any of it for granted.

Wishing you and your family an absolutely incredibly successful 2015 in every sphere if your lives & may your business continue to go from strength to strength.

«Hi Sarah

Finally got a few minutes to sit down after my pop-up stall today, (220 cuppies sold out in 2.5 hours), and say thank you once again for such a wonderful day on Friday. I have done a couple of courses and I have to say this was the most relaxed and enjoyable to date. It really was worth the drive. It was lovely to finally meet you and learn something that I really will use. It was also great to catch up with ‘my’ Sarah’ too!

I’m hoping to book off the beginning of November this week, really looking forward to it already!

Thank you also for sending all the notes and photos too.

Take care, hope to see you in November.

«Hi Sarah,
I just wanted to say I had a fabulous day yesterday and learnt lots of techniques. To be honest I tried Nevie pie painting on a big cake but didn’t get on well with it, ( I hid it in the cupboard when I got home!) but I love your technique and was super chuffed with my cakes. I would love to come again, probably September when our children are back in school would be better!
I’ll be in touch to arrange something anyway. Just wanted to say thanks again for a great course and delicious lunch!

«Morning Sarah,

Again, very many thanks for delivering what was a most magnificent cake, for our launch on Monday! Partners could not have been more impressed. There were so many compliments I lost count but be sure that each and every time, we pointed them in your direction.

The very last of the cake went round the office yesterday…smiles all round!

Thank you for all your help, your vision and professionalism.

Kind regards

Anna

«Thank you for a fabulous day on Monday — it has given me lots of ideas and confidence to carry some of them out.«

«Thank you for a wonderful day, I would highly recommend it to anyone who just fancies a go or an experienced baker that wants to widen their skillset.«

«I’m quite eager to bake more and get decorating! «

«I must say that Sarah can work wonders! I’m really proud of my little creation! I’ve learned so many tricks and ways to hide a multitude of mistakes in my fondant coverings! As you know, I am not a baker by any means — I bake once a year, for my husbands birthday and for my son’s birthday — thankfully this is the same day which halves my yearly baking! «

«I arrived at The Chocolate Strawberry this morning holding a very odd shaped cake in a tesco carrier bag, feeling a little embarrassed about my ‘blank canvas’. I must say that Sarah can work wonders! I’m really proud of my little creation! I’ve learned so many tricks and ways to hide a multitude of mistakes in my fondant coverings! As you know, I am not a baker by any means — I bake once a year, for my husbands birthday and for my son’s birthday — thankfully this is the same day which halves my yearly baking!
