The Academy’s latest course has plenty to offer you when it comes to cupcakes, cakes, and decorating them in a professional way. The course has been designed with a number of modules to make it possible for any excited person to start their own cupcake business. Cupcakes and cakes are always in need for celebrations, parties, birthday parties, weddings and other special occasions. The trouble is finding quality baked goods. The Wonderful World of Cupcakes course examines how an entrepreneur can start a business, market it and provide quality.

The Structure of the Course

The 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 Skills

These 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 Course

Each 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.
