Cake Baking & Decorating Classes Pretoria North

Baked by Nataleen runs confectionary classes to help clients brush up on their skills.

Why cake baking or cake decorating classes?

We began these classes to empower other entrepreneurs. There are so many unemployed people struggling to make ends meet and we wanted to help empower them because we know how this feels! We also realise that there is power in knowledge sharing and not many people are willing to do so. We believe that in South Africa, entrepreneurship is an important and essential part of us, and we find it so fulfilling to be able to share our knowledge with others.
