The Structure of the CourseThe latest course offering has an easy to read structure throughout all of the modules. Each module begins with an introduction to the current section as well as five points that you will learn about during the course of reading. At the end of each module is a concluding section to sum up everything you learned and then a little five question multiple choice quiz. This enables you to test what you learned and feel comfortable about it before you move on to the next module. The course is set up to flow into each point based on level of importance. A quick introduction to the course is provided first, with modules that explore what is means to run a cupcake establishment from a home or retail location. All of the necessary concepts for starting the business are discussed including how to price your goods and getting the right equipment. The course then moves on to discussing various ways to establish different recipes for different types of occasions such as cupcake recipes versus birthday cake recipes. The course will teach you that there are endless possibilities when it comes to recipes – all it takes is a little imagination. Perhaps you already have recipes you are proud of and have made changes to as a way to make them your own. If not you will learn some steps in how to come up with recipes that you can market as your own product versus some of the cheap methods others have been known to use, such as taking a packet mix from the shop and adding in three ingredients to change the cupcake. As you progress through the cupcake modules you will start to learn more about running a business. Topics such as hiring employees and training them, making sure your taxes are prepared correctly, marketing, and accounting are all a part of running a cupcake business and what some of the modules will teach you.
Gaining SkillsThese modules are designed to help you gain book knowledge to hone your skills. The key to the various modules is practise. You have to practise the different techniques of topics like cake decorating and bookkeeping to ensure that you are ready to run your own business, as well as supply superb baked goods to your clients.
Timing of the CourseEach module can be read in under 30 minutes, including taking the quiz. It just depends on how quickly you read and whether you want to take your time to test out a few of the things mentioned before you truly reach the end of the module you are on. The latest course in cupcake baking and decorating is meant to be done on a flexible schedule whether it takes you 10 hours to complete in a matter of days or over a year. At the end there is still the qualification that you are given for taking the course and completing it.
Getting your Start in BusinessSome individuals are able to jump right into something and make a new career. However, for most it takes some learning time. For example, a person can be pretty great at baking cupcakes, but it does not mean they know everything there is to know about selling those baked goods.

You will have a beginning that makes this course your stepping stone to greater things. Once you have been introduced to the nuts and bolts of the cupcake business, you can make changes in your current business or start your own company. Sometimes it helps having a companion to take along with you as you try a new endeavour. This latest course from the Academy is just that – a companion. It is your guide to finding the career you have always wanted. If you decide to go ahead and take this course you will find it is very helpful in a number of aspects as outlined above. All the details are not even discussed here, so you can look forward to finding some surprises waiting for you within the course. There are certain things you may never have thought of or even considered as a way to increase the quality of your baked goods.
