Building a network of teachers who run regular, informal and fun sugarcraft clubs, promoting a wider community of caring and mindful spaces to learn, create and cheer each other on in our sugarcrafting journeys.

Hello I'm Rhu and I am here you help you start running your own regular cake classes.

I have been running my own Monthly Modeller meetings since 2013, so very much towards the beginning of my sugarcrafting career, and I still have returning students to this day, although I now consider them friends more than students.

Working from home can be a lonely place, running regular classes with regular students not only brings guaranteed income, but builds an amazing local community that support each other, cheer each other on and become more than just students.

As a teacher, watching and growing your own community of students and friends brings boundless rewards.


These two hour classes fit perfectly into your day, mornings, afternoons or evenings, around childcare, part-time jobs and other commitments, run as many as you wish.

Classes are delivered direct to your inbox on a monthly basis with fully informative videos, tools and materials lists and learning objectives.

Become an Accredited Cake Minds Teacher and you will get instant access to a host of marketing material, free advertising, teaching tips, online video conference meeting with Rhu and ongoing support. As well as an affordable and amazing value for money package I also offer the option of a bolt on 1-2-1 with me for additional support. 


Ginger Cat Cakery

I thought of you this morning- I had a cake delivery in Horndean. Firstly I was thinking about our Sunday morning cake classes and how brilliant they were. Then I remembered that awful morning when I was trying to deliver a cake over that way and the model had collapsed and you so kindly helped me out when I rang you in a panic in Sunday morning- do you remember? You really are a star Rhu, so generous and always wanting and supporting others to do well. A true teacher! Thank you x


Our Aims

I aim make my tutors lives easier. I will provide a new tutorial each month to teach at the workshops, through online videos.

They are designed so that students and you can grow your skills and confidence over a period of time.

Projects will be varied, fun and achievable in a two hour session.

My Cake Minds Monthly Modeller classes are designed to be completed in a two hour session, they offer a wide range of skills and are perfect for the beginner, in fact we have one class designed especially for the complete novice for you to start your students with, if necessary. 

Students will develop and experiment with a variety of different skills throughout the course, growing their skills and confidence with ease over the course of a year. 

Classes are held around your kitchen table, so no renting premises (see FAQ's) , setting up and clearing up is kept as simple as possible to save your time and outlay.

An annual membership is payable, with no additional percentages to be paid back - this is not a franchise. 

Take a look at our interactive map to ensure there are no other teachers in your area, (we are currently allowing teachers an area of around 30 miles or if rural up to one hours drive - we have a commitment to you the teacher not to overcrowd your area, until you have more students than you can teachwe can then arrange a suitable time for a video call to talk about you becoming an Accredited Tutor - find out what is included in the package ....

Rhu Strand, Sugarcrafter, Competition Judge, Teacher, Article Writer for many cake magazines, advisor and support to many, is, in my opinion, a strong role model, approachable and positive in all aspects of her work.  She pays great attention to detail delivering her skills in such a way from beginners to experts in a 

calm, controlled, fun and friendly way making everyone feel able to reach the challenge presented.

Rhu is a true superstar and if you've never met her, never attended a course, haven't checked out her FB business pages, you really need to catch up with her soon.


Rhu’s ability to connect with her students makes her a kind, emphathetic and supportive teacher. She approaches challenges with such an open and positive attitude, it's infectious. I loved the sense of connection and belonging gained from sharing experiences with other sugarcrafters within the groups.

Through these courses I also met some wonderful ‘likeminded’ sugarcrafter’s and it 

has been a real pleasure to watch them develop their talents and confidence under Rhu’s tuition and continue their own sugarcraft journey.

My sugarcraft journey still continues today and I Thank Rhu, for being a patient,

encouraging and inspiring teacher and friend

Classes are designed to build on skills, so start with simple projects that will build your confidence and your students' confidence, they are all tried and tested within my own groups of differing abilities, with each project achievable within the 2 - 2.5 hour period.

Rhu is passionate about her students, having watched them not only grow their sugarcraft skills, but form firm lifelong friendships that involved more than just the regular meetings.

Cake Minds aims to build a global network of teachers that offer and bring together the sugarcraft community from a virtual platform to a local supportive community near you. 

We hope to bring you a mindful and creative space to sugarcraft on a regular basis in small friendly and informal group settings.   All Rights Reserved
