About Us

Cake Academy Wales, based in Neath, South Wales is a cake school run by the multi-award winning renowned New York pastry chef Nichola Ferron. 

As a classically trained chef from the Arts Institute of Seattle, Nichola brings the culinary expertise that is second to none. Always having a deep interest & skill in the baking aspect of the culinary arts, Nichola, while on maternity leave started a business from home that could combine both her love of baking with her love of art, whilst also affording her the freedom to raise a daughter and started creating bespoke couture wedding cakes.

Having such a talent led Nichola to further her studies and gain the PME Professional Diploma and subsequent Masters Certificate in the discipline. Furthermore, Nichola regularly pushes the boundaries of her discipline and has won numerous awards at internationally recognised events as well as most recently another Great Taste Gold Star Award in 2020.
