Hi, I'm Caroline Bailey, the founder, award winning wedding cake designer and heart and soul behind Hunkington House Kitchen.

My baking love started at an early age, all thanks to my amazing Mum and Nan, who were fantastic in the kitchen, always creating something delicious. Learning from them at an early age sparked a passion that has led me on a long path to where I am now.

This baking journey has been full of excitement from baking with John Whaite, cooking with Monica Galetti, achieving third place in the Great Shropshire Bake Off and also getting through to the final 70 applicants for the Great British Bake Off. Even though I didn’t get selected for the show it gave me the confidence and drive to pursue my dream career in baking.

Having spent years perfecting my baking skills attending classes, creating the most amazing cakes for weddings and other special occasions I have taken my love and passion, helping people to create and bake deliciousness, through fun interactive experiences.

The dream baking experience for me is where people feel at ease, it's interactive and you get to learn in a fun and engaging way. So in a nutshell that's what I deliver.

It is the best job to have when you get to see first hand how proud people are of their creations and their very own baking delights, even the ones who started nervous. My aim is to create a memorable experience for everyone to enjoy and I want my classes to ooze that specialness too.

Yes I'm a little bit obsessed with all the baking delights you can create yourself, so if I can spark memories to treasure, just like the ones I hold dearly then I'm doing it right! Whether it's an experience for a public class, a private group or 1-2-1, the baking fun is waiting to be explored.

Love Caroline xxx

Really enjoyed the class. Great friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Easy to follow and plenty of opportunity to ask questions through the class. The tarts tasted great and were a hit with the family.

Caroline was the perfect teacher and the perfect host. Her home made treats were amazing and we were made to feel so welcome. Her lovely spacious kitchen was perfect for the class. Caroline answered any questions we had along the way and was so helpful I throughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend to anyone!

My husband brought the Macarons making course as a Christmas present. I love baking, so was a great present. I was a little nervous at first as I had never made them before but Caroline was so lovely and made it so easy to follow. The rest of the group was great too. To my amazement I had 12 perfect macarons. I highly recommend Caroline, she is very knowledgeable and great at what she does. So if  + more

This class was for 11 year old daughter and absolutely loved it. Finally cracked the macaroons and they were delicious. Great gift for any age.

Make Macarons at Home



This was my first class with Hunkington House Kitchen and was given to me as a birthday gift. It was such a wonderful evening. Caroline was so helpful and informative. I can’t believe I learnt how to make beautiful macarons in such a short time. I can’t wait to experiment with different colours and flavours. Thank you Caroline

Make Mince Pies at Home



Very engaging and easy to follow along (pace not too slow or too fast) Really enjoyed our time in the class and getting sent some of the main ingredients in the mail beforehand made it very easy. We have done a few online cooking classes and this was the best!

Very well organised, and the kits themselves were of great quality. Caroline was great with communication from start to finish, not to mention a warm, friendly and knowledgable host. I look forward to booking with her again!
