One to One Sugarcraft Workshops


Busy weekend

We are opening our premises at Cannaboe Confectionery in Ballinamore to lots of workshops over the next few months.

Our One to One workshop is  from 9.30am – 4.30pm and you get to decide what you would like to learn over the course of the day.  It can be from the most basic to advanced techniques. It could be a day on getting tips on covering cakes, making cakes toppers for novelty cakes or learning  new styles for wedding cakes or even making a personalised bride & groom cake topper as a gift or for your own wedding.  You might even want to learn how to decorate your own wedding cake. You choose.

Here are testimonials from Finola and Aideen on their day:


“I went to Cannaboe Confectionary for a 1-day bespoke training course in 2010. I knew of Sharon through her training courses at Athlone IT  but was unable to attend the timetable courses due to time constraints.  From the moment I first contacted Sharon I knew that she could deliver just what I was looking for.  She was professional and had a wealth of experience in the field. To top it off her manner is warm and friendly so I knew that spending the day at Cannaboe would also be enjoyable. We discussed a timetable which met my specific, practical training needs and we were also able to cover time-management, effective working practices and “tools I can’t live without!” It was an informative and relaxed day and I was delighted with how much I learnt. Since then Sharon has been a great help to me in moments of panic with a quick and calming reply to a question by phone or email.  I wish Sharon continued, well-deserved success with her wonderful, inspiring business”.



“Being a student of culinary arts I’ve a huge interest in anything foodie! However my college course doesn’t offer any sugar craft classes so working with Sharon was of huge benefit to me! My one on one class was so interesting and I learned tips and techniques that I’d never thought of before such as making the most with fondant and covering cakes with icing. I had informed her previously what my ideas were and we worked together to create what I think was a masterpiece. What I found most rewarding was learning how to make figures out of fondant, and i now feel fully confident with using the techniques i learned. The premises has everything you could imagine, with all ingredients and tools that could possibly be needed, I would definitely recommend a one to one tutorial as I didn’t want the day to end.”
