Do you share our love of all things cupcake? Do you long to know the insider secrets to sugar flowers, swirls and sprinkles? Do you want to help us rid the world of boring baked goods, one cupcake at a time?!
Now you can! We’re in Hagley, which is in The Midlands, slap bang in the centre of England, about 11 miles South West of Birmingham, easy to get to by motorway, train and plane. We’d love to welcome you to Blue Door Bakery HQ for a cupcake class, to have a nose around the kitchen and learn some tricks of the trade, while getting your paws on some of our finest sprinkles.
Why come on a cupcake course with us? Good question! If you’re going to spend some hard earned cash on a class you want to know you’re paying for an expert right? That’s where we come in! Last year alone we baked 20,000 cupcakes and we have now taught well over 1,000 cupcake fans how to pipe the perfect swirl. We know what we’re talking about and have answered every cupcake question you can think of. You can read some of the lovely things previous students have said about us at the bottom of this page.
We run the following classes. Please click on each image for more information:

The relaxed friendly atmosphere, class not too big and the chance to ask questions about anything. All tutors are very friendly and approachable. Nothing was too much trouble and got to learn lots from them. – Sandie
There is always a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I think the pacing of the classes are excellent and you always leave with a real sense of achievement (and a wonderful set of cupcakes). I’ve attended two of Laura’s and two of Kath’s classes. They are both outstanding tutors – very knowledgeable, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for either of them. I know Jenny isn’t a tutor but she is always so welcoming on arrival and always so helpful with anything shop or course booking related. – Debbie
I most enjoyed the sugarcraft aspect of the class as I had no prior experience of this. The way it was taught made a daunting task very simple and easy to replicate at home. The class tutor was lovely! Very helpful and informative. – Kay
The day was really well structured and the cake class was taught in a very clear way so I could keep up with everything. I felt I had learnt new skills by the end of the day and went home to put what I had learnt into practice. I was super happy with the result! Laura was really attentive to all who attended the class. She was very patient with those who needed extra guidance and made time to check everyone was on track with their decorations. She answered all our cake decorating related queries and created a really comfortable, relaxed atmosphere among the group so we could all really enjoy the day. I also attended the Start to Finish class and Gemma was also really great answering my questions and made everyone feel very welcomed. Big thanks to you all! – Sarah-Lou
