  1. I think i am an expert now on cake decoration


    The modules about baking are very informative. I was able to understand all about baking through this course. This says a lot from someone who has no experience in baking at all. I’m also thankful for the online tutors who are very willing to assist me with my needs. Thank you.

  2. So happy i didnt pay full price


    Not what i was expecting at all. Sure, had some information on piping, ratios, levelling etc however everything is american so not British measurements. Also videos at the end are a mixed jamboree of cake decorating found on youtube. Not even educational videos….just watching someone pipe a cake with no information.

    This ‘exam’ of you can call it that was terribly written in poor english. Half the questions lacked grammar and made no sense!

    For example : ‘Which of the following should you keep informed but its not allowed in a broadcast?’

    Does that make sense to anyone? Does that have ANYTHING to do with cakes?

    The final exam hardly has any questions about actual baking or cake decorating. Its mostly about an american classes not even mentioned throughout the course.

    Save your money. Learn through youtube and books.

  3. Would give 0 stars if I could


    This course is a complete waste of time and money. All the videos and information it gives can easily be found from a google search.
    The exam itself asks completely irrelevant questions and is full of grammatical errors.

    Do not waste your time with this!!!
