Have you heard of Paul Bradford? No? Well let me tell you that if there is ever a guru in Cake Artistry – he is the one to follow for inspiration.

The first time I ever saw his work was through the CakeFlix website. I had subscribed to the website’s email list and when I saw the videos they had sent me, I was amazed with Paul’s cakes.

Paul Bradford’s cake tutorials are excellent. His skills go beyond what we deem to be,  just cake and moves into the realm of art. I view his art form as ‘outside of the box’ and unique.


The other person of note is David Brice, co-founder and pro tutor of CakeFlix. His specialty is in business and you will find that his tutorial on how to price your cakes valuable information.


Both these men have exceptional skills in cake decorating and experience in how to run a successful cake business. Their passion for cakes turned into teaching and CakeFlix is the result.

CakeFlix courses provide students, with professional learning and the required skills to be more efficient in their own cake businesses.

Today I will present you with a product review on CakeFlix.


Online Course vs Degree

Although, I have taught myself since I was about 11 years old (the first time, I was allowed to use our oven), I still found that I desired a certain ‘polish’ (an aside: this could also possibly be, because I am quite dyslexic and perfectionism is one of my weaknesses – which may have nothing to do with cake decorating in itself).

I never wanted to attend an actual technical course: that I had travel to; spend hours away from home or my kids; and not to mention, would cost me an arm or a leg to attend. In New Zealand, the course fees for special baking degree range from $2000 – $5000 NZD per semester, and can take more than a year to complete. I couldn’t afford this, let alone, pay to have my kids cared for, while doing a degree.


CakeFlix- Paul Bradford Cake Topper Course

On top of all this, I didn’t want to learn everything else that did not involve cake decorating, for example the chemistry of foods etc. I wanted a block course that gave me the skills I needed, to start earning. Hence, I chose an online course that taught me the specifics, with every information that I needed to establish my own home baking business.

It took me less than a few months to complete and the lessons were easy and practical. Also, I didn’t need to give my arm or leg to pay for expensive course fees.

Therefore, if you are seriously looking at building a baking/cake artistry portfolio for your home business, I encourage you to do an online baking course that will teach you everything that you would need to know about cake artistry, and learn as you create, how to set up and run a home baking business straight away.

  3. I summed up all that is required to receive topnotch training from Caker school, it is less than what is required for degree which is over 2,000 NZD per semester.Baking is an art as much as science, it takes one with lots of experience to teach cake decoration.The course outline is already a sign that one will get value for money spent. By leveraging of thousands of their followers on social media, it is an opportunity to network with like minds.

  4. This is interesting – I’ll tell my sister since she likes to bake a lot. Do you know if any of the cake recipes include latin recipes cakes – like the flan, tres leches etc. I’m not sure if you are familiar with these. Can you please let me know? also do any of the tutors speak spanish? I’ll tell my mom as well, thanks for sharing this helpful review.

    1. Hi Paul,
      thank you for commenting on my article and thank you for your questions. I have no experience or knowledge in Latin cake recipes, only because I have had no specific requests for one. Cakerschool also has a facebook page, which your sister can follow and ask questions also. The school is also helpful, and if you ask they have so many tutors from and even if not they may try to find a way to have courses translated.

  5. This just amazes me! I have a son and daughter and both love to bake. I was not aware that someone could learn how to start a cake making business from home until I saw your post.

    The cake in the video is amazing! I have never seen anything like it!
