I had mentioned to Shona during the previous Gourmet Desserts course that I would like better knowledge of mirror glaze and she suggested the Entremet Glazing course.
Shona is always happy to answer all my questions and never makes you feel that it was a silly question.
The desserts made were really lovely and the course was aimed at just the right level. Shona is very relaxed and makes the courses fun.
This course was all day and I came home with 3 beautiful desserts for all my family to admire and enjoy.
Shona had recipes ready and some ingredients weighed out to help but allowed us to make the major components of each dessert. She is always happy to assist if needed and answer lots of questions.

Excited to have done another course with the lovely Shona Sutherland from Taystful!
Incredible work, an amazing inspiration and teacher in the chocolate and patisserie world.

What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday. Great teaching with new skills learned and then take it all home to enjoy. The desserts are aesthetically pleasing but taste wise they are simply outstanding. Utterly delicious!

Shona created our wedding cake and it was stunning; both visually and in taste. From initial meeting right through to the finished product, Shona has been responsive and organised tastings to help us make decisions about flavour choices (there is a vast array available). I am confident that no matter what your idea for cake may be, Shona could not just create it but will deliver something that exceeds your expectations. Our guests were raving about how tasty the cake was; and rightly so. Thank you!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for our amazing wedding cake last Saturday! Everyone commented on, not only how gorgeous it was, but how amazing it tasted!! Unfortunately, it’s all gone now :( But it was utterly delicious!! Thank you so much for the hard work you put into it!

Another fabulous day spent in the Taystful kitchens with Shona. If you get the chance to do one of these courses grab it with both hands - you WON'T be disappointed. Professional, informative and most of all enjoyable.

Loved trying out new flavours and fillings for Macarons along with variations of colour on the course.
Super high quality as always with Shona and definitely feel confident following her recipes.

I attended a one to one chocolate making course at Taystful. Shona was brilliant, explaining a lot about the techniques. Nothing was to much trouble and the course was beyond what I was expecting. One to one is a considered purchase, but well worth it!

I recently planned a destination wedding for the sweetest couple at Forter Castle in Angus and can not thank Forter enough for the referral to Shona at Taystful! Not only did she make the process of selecting and designing a wedding cake and petits fours from the U.S. easy, but she also came through with a no hassle and timely delivery on the wedding day, as well as, provided the most beautiful and delicious treats a bride and groom could ask for. I can not wait to get back to Scotland for my next destination wedding and will, without a doubt, be looking forward to working with Shona again. If you are looking for a wedding cake as beautiful as it is delicious Taystful is the way to go. Many many thanks,

We can't thank Shona enough for such a fabulous wedding cake. Often cake that looks really good doesn't ever taste as good, however Shona proved that this doesn't have to be the case. Our cake fitted in perfectly with the theme of the day & people are still saying 7 weeks after our special day how nice it tasted!
Thanks so much!
