"Hi Sarah,
Thank you so much for an amazing day. I literally enjoyed every minute of it and learnt such a lot. I haven't stopped talking about my time with you since I got home. Poor hubby got his dinner at 7.30!! ( we normally eat at 6.00!!!)
I can't wait to practise some more and will do so at the weekend.
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality in your beautiful home.
Also, many thanks for the copious notes which I will study carefully and try to do justice to them.
I do hope to meet you again in the near future and wish you all the very best with your guest appearances, especially in front of the camera!!"


"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.


"Hi Sarah,

I just wanted to email to say a HUGE thank you for our beautiful wedding cake! I was so excited to see the final product and it was exactly what I wanted, it was perfect!

Thank you again for your hard work.



"Just a little note to say a HUGE THANK YOU for being such a spectacular and lovely teacher today. I really enjoyed the course, friendliness and the venue! You were so consistently thoughtful, making sure each and every one of us were content with what we were painting. Everyone was made to feel at ease and relaxed, whilst enjoying excellent tips and advice from yourself which were so useful. No-one was made to feel rushed, yet the class moved on nicely and you were always there for everyone, all while we chatted away together too.

So a big thank you again, genuinely this was such a fantastic course and that is down to what a great teacher you are.


"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 attended two of The Chocolate Strawberries Cupcake Paintning classes.... Fab instruction, chat, food, drink and fun..... i left with new confidence when it came to presentation of my cakes and finding a new love for painting...... Cant wait to go back for more. Would recommend 100%"


"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!"
