Bakery course was the inspiration for new businesses to get started
A GROUP of graduates are cooking up a storm thanks to a course on offer in west Cornwall.
Six new businesses have grown out of a course begun at Penwith College in September called Setting Up Your Own Small Bakery Business.
It was set up by Barbara Reynolds, who has worked as a chef and ran her own bakery businesses.
"Even though I had confidence in my course, I've still been amazed at the transformation I've witnessed in my students throughout their learning," she said.

"Several are now running their own bakery businesses, while others have left the course with the confidence and skills to turn their hobby into a business when the time's right for them."
Former student Marilyn Burtenshaw said: "The course is an excellent beginning for anyone wanting to go into the world of baking.
"It covers a multitude of issues such as pricing of products and ingredients, how to make a living from your home bakery, places to sell your goods and kitchen days, with a qualified baker, to help you hone your techniques.
"This course is a wonderful springboard to go from idea to reality. I'm based in Hayle and now running a small bakery business called Crumbs."
The next course starts on January 15.
