MAKE IT SWEET GUEST INSTRUCTOR CLASSES

Back To Top QUEEN OF HEARTS COUTURE CAKES


Founded by two best friends, Valeri and Christina, who share the same passion. From that "sweet accident" when they discovered their talents, the duo never stopped believing in the power of BUTTERCREAM. They have persevered and continuously innovated. From that very humble beginning, their company has now grown from strength to strength and has become the multi-award winning and world renowned company that we all know today.

As you probably know, Valeri and Christina are completely self-taught. From the moment they discovered their passion for buttercream, they have never stopped practicing. As much as they wanted to attend classes then, unfortunately, buttercream cake decorating courses were not popular and available at that time. So they have made use of youTube videos, online tutorials and blogs as their main resources.

It was a very challenging process. They have worked countless hours, made a lots of mistakes, wasted so much butter and icing sugar, broke a few hand mixers... the long list could go on. But all this did not really stop them. Instead, it became their inspiration. Not only that they were very keen on perfecting their craft, but also, they wanted to prove that buttercream is not just for filling cakes.

duo logo
A message from Valeri and Christina -

We started just like you. (we are not superwomen or genius - not at all!)
There were times that we have already given up - then tried again. Tired. No sleep - but we carried on. Then practiced again... There was a time that we were even juggling 2 jobs but because we were passionate (meaning obsessed) about buttercream and very eager to learn, we again, carried on.

We definitely know how hard it is to establish a business, to find your niche and to be competitive in a cake community that is only getting bigger and bigger everyday. It could also be expensive as well. (a very expensive "hobby", isn't it?)

We understand you. We want to help you. And by saying this, we want to make sure that you get the most of every penny you will invest in our class. We do not keep any secrets. We share everything we know to make you understand everything and make sure you will be able to apply the techniques in any of your future cake projects. You can also be assured that all the techniques that we share in classes, except the flower piping techniques, will stay in classes and will never be in any Craftsy video, tutorials, blogs, etc.

We hope to see you in class.
