Suzanne Esper

I run and own the cake school for both online and in person classes and it’s my one true passion. I love to empower others to reach their cake decorating potential fast.

The minute you step through my door or join my online programs you will be looked after in every way. I originally started out as a research scientist with a PhD in cancer research who happened to have a secret passion for cake decorating. Following the birth of my two children, I was presented with a chance to start a new career and grasped it with both hands.

I’ve been making cakes for the best part of ten years. I developed my own unique style and soon began to teach others and my tips and tricks and have never looked back. I quickly gained a reputation for delivering outstanding cakes in my successful wedding cake business and I would love to help you do the same too.

I was recently awarded the 2019 UK’s top ten cake artist of the year award by the prestigious Cake magazine – Cake Masters and became an Ambassador for one of the UK’s largest online cake Supply companies – Cake Stuff. I also tutor for the prestigious Cake International.

Not only will I enable you to bring out the best in your cake decorating abilities, I’ll help grow your confidence to take your decorating to the next level like I have for over 7000+ students and growing.

Where I teach

You can find My online classes here

For our in person group classes and guest tutor classes, the cake school is housed within a purpose built studio situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh with spectacular views across beautiful Scottish countryside. A perfect backdrop to whet your creative appetite for cake baking, styling, crafting and decorating.

Don't just take my word for it, here's what my students say...

“This lady right here…..words cannot express the joy and laughter as well as inspiration she has given us throughout our time spent with her! She is such an amazing person with incredible skills that just permeates the air! An amazing teacher and she is so down to earth. I mean she’s incredibly personal and supportive. Always positive and encouraging even when you’re just not feeling it. Always showing us another angle to work to so that we can see it is possible to do what we sometimes feel is not possible. Suzanne Esper YOU ROCK!! 🎤 (mic drop)”

“When I found the Night school I have lost my passion for cake decorating. The Night school has completely reignited my passion for cakes and sugar flowers. Suzanne’s teaching style is attentive and encouraging, the course can be taken in your own time and there are little competitions to motivate you. The group itself is full of like-minded people who egg each other on to do better and has an amazing community. Honestly it’s the best thing I’ve done to improve my skills and confidence.”

“I can honestly say it’s changed my life! I’ve developed such a new passion and drive to create even better flowers and not just the flower skills but Suzanne’s mentoring and motivation really has changed the way I look at my work… next year I’ve even taken the plunge to focus on weddings only!”

“I’m absolutely loving the results I’m getting from night school three not just the O’Hara on all of the individual lessons. Suzanne has changed my life in a huge way and has given me the confidence to turn my hobby into a business. I’ve done many online classes before and Suzanne’s way of teaching and her classes are the best online teaching experience I’ve ever had by far”
