Many cake designers may feel that they lack the confidence or the knowledge to fully achieve their business’ potential. With constant competition and the presence of social media it can often feel an overwhelming task to make as well as sell cakes. This three-day course aims to share with you all that Rosalind has learned and built up in her 20+ years of design and work within the industry. We tackle all the tricky subjects that are invaluable lessons for businesses of any size and relevant to the industry today.

Rosalind’s background lies within teaching the skill of design at the highly prestigious Central St Martins, this leaves her in a unique position to really teach you how to successfully design a cake; placing you in a better position to be a trendsetter yourself and design the cakes that you really want to make!

The school is also part of a fully functioning and busy kitchen, so it is in the perfect position to share with you all the ‘ins and outs’ of running a successful and commercial business. Topics covered will include Branding, Social Media, PR and Marketing, Health and Safety, Costing and Pricing, Production, Starting up, Trade shows, Consultations and much more.

We want the class to be hands-on, after all, us cake makers are tactile people! So, we will be having lots of practical sessions in design, client consultations and photography.

You’ll also be able to take a tour of our professional cake design studio and kitchen (conveniently located next to the classroom), you’ll also meet Rosalind and the team for Q&A where you can ask any cake questions you may have.
