The Cake Insider Academy

The journey to becoming a pro cake decorator

Meet one of our Members, Jessica Ann..

“Whether you want a cake business or would like to refine your cake artistry to perfect your hobby... There is something for everyone in this academy, no matter what level you are at."

"For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to turn my hobby of baking cakes into a business. During COVID-19 my husband sent me a link to Amanda’s CIA ad and as soon as I opened it up, I was hooked… It was the sign I was looking for! The Cake Insider Academy is not a download and see you later approach, it’s a nurture and inspire program that I’m so grateful to be a part of! Xx My cake business didn’t exist until the day I logged into the CIA for the first time. Since then, my cake hobby has morphed very quickly into a thriving business. What was life changing for me was understanding my niche, finding my avatar (my ideal client) and refining my direction so I was clear on exactly what I wanted from my business. All the way down to what days I wanted to keep free for my family! Even as a working mum of two and a FIFO wife, this is how easy it is to follow! I am now excited to say I’m able to hand in my notice at my current job and focus 100% on my business! All within 4 months! Thank you for all that you do and the CIA has done for me! I will be forever in your debt, such a life-changing experience for me” - Jessica Ann, from The Botanical Bakery, WA @thebotanicalcakery_

Jess White's CIA Experience..

"I decided I wanted to be part of THIS academy because I knew at a glance, with everything it offered"

I have recently decided to take my home cake decorating hobby and turn it into a home based business. I decided I wanted to be part of THIS academy because I knew at a glance with everything it offered.... it was everything I needed to point me in the right direction armed with all the tools I needed to be the decorator I wanted to be. Before starting with Sugar Sugar Cake school I had done countless novelty cakes that were time consuming, kept me for hours on end away from my family and I knew that the returns on these cakes as a business would not be worth my family sacrifices. I needed and wanted to change my caking style to suit my personality and passions... and knew Amanda could get me there!So far this school has taught me so many things I didn't even know I needed to know, it has provided detailed step by step guides to setting up my business, giving order to prioritize these steps, templates, recipes, new skills and so much more. It has so far been an invaluable resource for me and I am always excited to see what is added next! I am almost on my way to officially being "Open for business" trading as (Gallery Cakes ~ The Art of Cake) and have progressed significantly in the past couple of months with my new style, new skills, my work space and all the behind the scenes business requirements. I would absolutely recommend this Cake school to anyone looking to develop new skills and to grow or start up their business. To have someone you trust there for every step, guiding you and supporting you through every new milestone is priceless. Thank you Amanda - Jessica White, Gallery Cakes, SA @gallery__cakes

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I access content once I sign up?

    You can access all premium courses & content at www.sugarcakeschool.com and simply click 'Member Login' to enter your login details and all your courses will be available in your Dashboard. Details of all member information including how to join our exclusive FB Members Group will be provided in a Welcome video once you sign up.

  • Can I join the Cake Insider Academy any time I want?

    Unfortunately, no. The Insider Academy only opens its doors very (VERY) few times a year to enable us to focus our attention on the students enrolled at each intake. Once doors close, you unfortunately have to wait months down the track to join.

  • Am I able to get a refund?

    You are able to cancel your membership anytime, however you are not eligible to receive a refund of past payments as this is a content-based membership. As it is not possible to "return" the content or information that you have received from Sugar Sugar Cake School, this is why we are unable to offer refunds on past payments.

  • Can I cancel my membership at any time?

    Yes you can. If you decide for whatever reason that you want to end your membership, you can do so under 'Billing' or by emailing sugarsugarcakesau@gmail.com Please note however, that if you end your membership but decide to rejoin again at a later time, you would have to wait for doors to the CIA to reopen, and that you would also have to enrol at whatever the new (likely higher) price rate the membership is listed at. The benefit of being in a continual membership is that you are able to keep your affordable member's rate for as long as you are a member.

  • Can't I get this information online?

    There is a lot of information out there however the main problem is often information overload. Cake makers often find themselves drowning in the the vast sea of information without a clear learning pathway, which result in huge time wastage and slow growth. The Cake Insider Academy is organised for easy learning and filters out everything irrelevant. We've done the hard work by only including the most vital skills to help you on your journey to becoming a highly skilled contemporary cake decorator in 12 months. Most importantly, a majority of our Premium Courses feature unique modern techniques that are not taught elsewhere, and certainly not to the same degree of detail and specifics.

  • Is this suitable for beginners and hobbyists?

    The Cake Insider Academy is designed with easy-to-follow beginner modules to develop fundamental cake decorating skills, before you move on to other intermediate and advanced modules. It is the perfect space for you to hone and develop your craft, with a vast library of beginner level tutorials. If you ever get stuck, we have a private community (it's a safe space!) where you can join in and ask questions.

  • Is this suitable for business owners?

    Absolutely, baking businesses will benefit from this Academy as we'll be covering key business and social media marketing skills to run a sustainable cake decorating business. It will be action-oriented and less "theory". We include only the most important advice for maximum impact. This coupled will the latest cake decorating techniques will give your cake business a definitive edge in what is a competitive and progressive industry.

  • How is this ongoing Membership different from an individual course?

    Sugar Sugar Cake School was established to empower cake decorators to turn their passion into a thriving career. Our existing base of 15,000 students (online and live classes) have benefited from the individual courses. Based on their feedback, we have now organized this into an ongoing online program to create an optimal learning experience and growth. We also found that no cake decorator ever succeeded by learning one thing overnight, nor by "going it alone". We've seen the power of online community support and continual learning in producing tangible results for cake decorators.

  • I'm semi-experienced, should I join the Insider Academy?

    If you're an emerging cake decorator with experience, we have several modules to help you develop into a true cake decorating pro. We have a specially designed 'Pathway to Learning' to guide you through all levels of Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced techniques, regardless of your current level.
