"I attended the Semi-Freddo Cake Course with Antonelli’s in 2016. The course took place at the stunning, Rolandos. The tutor was named Eric and he was fantastic! He had been making such cakes for a very long time and was incredibly experienced.  He was very good at explaining the process in great detail as he was showing the practical steps of making the cakes. He also got us to get involved and we made some also.”  Sulina,  Bedfordshire
