It’s spring in Perth and there is no better way to spend it than with your family! The October school holidays in Perth are here and we have so many exciting experiences to share with you from all over Perth. So get the diary out, while the holidays are still at their beginning, and start planning!

Northern Suburbs

Holiday Fun for the Whole Family! 

Come and join us these holidays for some fun and tasty workshops. Learn the art of fondant modelling (like playdoh that you can actually eat), and then decorate your own delicious cupcakes with creamy buttercream.

Everything is supplied, so just bring yourselves, your friends and your family and take part together. Learning is so much fun when there is cake involved. The themes we have these school holidays are ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ and ‘Lego Party’, so there is something for everyone. Multiple dates are available. Ages start from 3 years old. All allergies are catered for, just let us know at the time of booking. If you cannot make the dates listed, no problem, just let us know and if we have the numbers, we will add another date.
