The Glasgow School of Confectionery & Sweetmaking was based at 28 Regent Park Square (then numbered 34) from 1908, and run by the Clark sisters, Gertrude and Julia.

The school offered “practical classes in all branches of confectionery, sweet-making, and cookery” and “country classes and correspondence lessons by arrangement”.

Gertrude published a book, All about Sweet-Making, in 1909, yours for 2/6 net (12.5 pence), and I believe one lucky Strathbungo resident has discovered a second hand copy.

If you fancy a go, download her book (pdf), and try her recipes. Thanks to the Scottish Recipes website for the copy.
