    I completed the first two modules successfully but when it came to the third, it was on ‘Baking Cake’ I needed help. I asked for help on the forum. John’s forum is so big and they responded shortly. I could clear all my confusions and made some new friends there. I hope John Academy will continue providing such amazing courses in the future. Thanks. XXX
