Courses with Tessa Whitehouse

Tessa Whitehouse has enjoyed decorating cakes since she was very young. She first learnt about sugarcraft from books and was never one to shirk a challenge, even making sugar flowers for the first time for her own wedding cake just three days before the wedding! Tessa has an honours degree in home economics, further improved her cake decorating skills with courses at Squires Kitchen and developed her chocolate skills at the Callebaut Academy.

While Tessa enjoys all aspects of sugarcraft, royal icing remains her key interest and for the last four years she has attended classes and trained with Eddie Spence for the pure pleasure of working with a master of his craft. Tessa has undertaken private commissions for a number of years and was inspired and encouraged by Eddie to share her interest through demonstrating royal icing in the Squires Kitchen shop in Farnham. Tessa has also recieved a gold award for her Rene Lalique-inspired wedding cake at Salon Culinaire in 2014.

Tessa teaches regularly at Squires Kitchen International School, passing on her intricate skills, eye for detail and impressive skills. With a relaxed style, Tessa aims to share her passion and inspire others to work with the amazing medium of sugar.
