Suzanne Esper


I run and own the cake school 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 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 eight years and I have built up a successful wedding cake business called Suzanne Esper Cakes. I developed my own unique style and soon began to teach others and have never looked back. I quickly gained a reputation for delivering  outstanding cakes time after time and I would love to help you do the same.

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.


Where I teach


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.

I have recently launched a joint venture with a fellow cake maker to bring my cake classes and guest tutors to Aberdeen. We launched The Aberdeen Cake School in March 2018.

Also in 2018 I began my teaching tour of the UK. I have been lucky enought to have been asked to teach at several venues thoughout the UK.


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

I have attended two classes now with Suzanne (flower cascade & magnolia wedding cake) and I’d highly recommend. Suzanne’s teaching style is excellent, she takes time with all students and gives lots of great tips and techniques to make things simpler. It’s also a really warm and friendly environment, I had such a great time. I can’t wait to get booked on my next course!

I just had 2 days of one to one tuition with Suzanne and I can not recommend her enough. We focussed on all the things I wanted to do and she has given me so many tips and so much good advice. My techniques improved so much already. She is a very talented lady and is so friendly and a good laugh too. If you’re thinking about doing a course with her I would say go for it. I’ll definitely be going to some more of her classes in the future.

A few weeks ago I had the most amazing couple of days with Suzanne for a private lesson. I spent a long time looking for the right courses/tutor that suits my style and could tailor tuition to what I wanted to learn. Suzanne was amazing and I learnt soooo much. I will definitely be attending course/booking further 1:1 lessons with Suzanne as I absolutely loved my couple of days learning from her...thank you, thank you, thank you xxx
