Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I have an allergy and I’d like to attend one of your courses, do you provide cupcakes for my particular allergy or do you have any other suggestions?

The cupcakes we provide for our classes do contain wheat and eggs. To help to accommodate our students with allergies we usually ask students to bring 6 of their own cupcakes (we provide you with our standard cupcake recipe beforehand and you substitute the ingredients as required for your allergy) and then we bake another 6 standard cupcakes for you so that you have 12 to decorate.

You’ll then be able to eat at least 6 of the cupcakes and students usually give the remainder to friends and family.

Please tell us about your allergy before booking a course by sending an e-mail to info@magentacakes.co.uk

 

Question: My teenage daughter would love to come on one of your courses however I notice that your classes are for over 16 years, she’s very mature for her age and I wondered if you’d make an exception?

We can make some allowances around this. We usually ask that your teenager is at least 14 years old and that the parent/guardian also pays for a place on the course.

 

Question: Are you going to be running any more course dates, and when will these be available?

We regularly add further course dates and these are added to the website 2 months in advance ie. September dates will be available from July.

 

Question: Where are you based?

We are based in Chessington on the Surrey/SW London border. We are a 5 minutes drive from Chessington World of Adventures theme park and our closest stations are Chessington North and Surbiton ( 20 minutes direct from London Waterloo).

 

Question:  Do you have good public transport links?

Yes we do. Buses run from the top of our road every 5-8 minutes to either Chessington North or Surbiton station. Taxi’s are available outside of both stations and there are local taxi firms we can recommend for your return journey.

We are also located close to Heathrow airport (14 miles) and Gatwick airport is a 30 minute drive away.

There are a range of hotels close by such as Travelodge, Holiday Inn and Premium Inn all within 2 miles of our location.
