Sunflower Bakery was established in 2013 and started with a love of cupcakes! I started just like you, creating cakes for family and friends and developed into the world of wedding cakes, creating bespoke wedding cakes for couples across the South West.
In 2017, I made the decision to grow my business and found the perfect space for my new venture. Our stunning grade 2 listed barn, allows us to welcome up to 12 students to learn from the very best cake designers in the industry.
In Spring 2020, we launched our online cake school, which brings learning to the comfort of your own home. We are teaming up with a range of tutors to bring you professional tutorials for those students who are unable to attend our workshops in person. We have had students ask us time and time again, if we will be able to offer online tutorials and so this is for you! We value each and everyone of our followers, students and tutors and listen to what you would love for us to do next, so this next adventure is super exciting!
With a recent expansion, we now also have a second classroom and shop, where you can buy all of your essential cake making equipment. We offer a click and collect service and world wide shipping making it easy to get all your cake goodies at the click of a button. We are lucky to be working with a range of brands and our brand family is ever growing! So, if you would love for us to stock a particular item or brand then let us know.
Our cake school is based in the heart of the small and very picturesque village of Wedmore, the perfect place to spend a few days. We have free parking onsite, accommodation and places in the village to eat. If you are travelling with a friend; a loved one or even with children there is plenty for them to do and explore, they can’t possibly get bored!
The village of Wedmore is based only 15 minutes’ drive from Cheddar Gorge; the City of Wells; and Glastonbury. A little further afield are the City of Bath, Bristol and even Stonehenge. Since 2017, we have been lucky enough to welcome students from around the UK and from across the world, all of whom speak so highly of their experience of attending one of our workshops!
Our nearest Airport is Bristol International Airport, which is a 20-minute drive from the studio and transport is available from the Airport to Wedmore, so once you arrive you do not require a car for your stay and should have everything you need.
Check out our travel and accommodation page for extra details about how to find us and with help to plan your trip. Once you book a workshop with us, you will receive a Welcome Pack, which will provide you with all the little details you will need to plan your break.
If you ever have any additional questions then please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will more than happy to help.
We hope you will come and take a class with us soon and for those of you who have been to our beautiful school, we can’t wait to see you again soon!
I have attended two classes at Sunflower Bakery and absolutely loved the experience both times. Kelly made me feel so welcome and as though we had been friends for years. The classes I attended were with The Designer Cake Co and Zaza Marcelle. Both tutors were amazing and so helpful. These are my favourite and best classes I have been to and I know it's because of the "The Sunflower Bakery Experience". I would highly recommend Sunflower Bakery to anyone who is looking to perfect their cake decorating skills in a picturesque setting and a very friendly atmosphere.

Sunflower Bakery Cake School is my happy place! From the minute you arrive Kelly makes you feel welcome and relaxed. She has created a warm, inviting studio in which to learn from some of the most amazing cake experts and spend time with like-minded cake people. This wonderful place is a tribute to her hard work and fabulous personality. I have been many times and I have no doubt that I will return many more. The studio is in the beautiful village of Wedmore, Somerset. It couldn't be better located - close to Bristol airport, main motorways which link easily to London, the South West, the Midlands and beyond so really easy to get to yet in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. I make a wonderful mini-break of my visits and stay at The Swan in the village which is a little gem - comfortable rooms, delicious food and great gin! I absolutely love it and can't wait for my next visit.

I attended the Debbie Brown Unicorn modelling 1 day course on a grey day in January. You immediately receive the warmest of welcomes from Kelly and she puts you at ease with her warm and friendly charm and enthusiasm. The location is beautiful even in January and everything is laid out just so. Well equipped, comfortable and a great space to learn. Everything is thought of and you even get a lovely lunch and time to stretch your legs in the beautiful pub opposite.
Debbie was an amazing tutor, her talent and experience shine through when teaching, she is patient and kind and a lovely person with great stories and knowledge. I couldn’t believe the results I was able to achieve in just 1 day.
