Perfecting Cake Techniques is a Game-Changer for Bakers!

Say goodbye to inconsistent cakes with this flavor-packed course

There were certain techniques that always tripped me up when I started baking.  "Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy."  😑 Excuse me, what?  "Two sticks of butter, room temperature" was also awful for me, because what did that even mean?  And there were countless other steps in every cake recipe that just left me...guessing.  Which left my early cakes...lacking.

Over the past nine years, I've studied, practiced, and perfected these same cake techniques, and now I'm ready to share them with you! After finishing this course, you'll know all of the fundamental techniques that you need to know in order to execute unbelievable cakes.

That's right.  That coveted dessert table spot can be yours!

A Self-Taught Baker, Blogger and Bakery Owner Who Cracked the Cake Code

Shani Whisonant

Chief Butter Ambassador

Hi! I'm Shani Whisonant, and I'm the Chief Butter Ambassador at Begin with Butter, and a 5-star cottage bakery owner. I'm a self-taught baker and I've worked for years to achieve my own baking confidence and consistency. I created the blog Begin with Butter in 2021 to help people with their biggest baking challenges. I opened the Begin with Butter Home Baking Academy to help you bust through all of your baking barriers so that you can be confident in the kitchen. My greatest joy is teaching others and I can't wait to bake with you!

    This course contains about 90 minutes of hands-on, video instruction, as well as PDF guides to help you become more competent and confident with your cakes.

  • Who is this course designed for?

    This course is for all bakers! It's useful for new bakers who want to start "on the good foot" and avoid costly, confidence-killing mistakes. It's also great for experienced bakers who are looking for more consistency from their cakes.

  • How is this different from the Creative Cakes Course?

    The Creative Cakes Course is Begin with Butter's flagship course. That course is designed for bakers who want to create their own recipes, as well as get information about how to start a baking business. While there’s a techniques chapter in that course, Creative Cakes is more involved and it's designed more for the baker who wants to unlock their creativity by making their very own recipes, and who's looking forward to leveling up and starting their own business.

    Perfecting Cake Techniques is the course for people who don't want to make their own cake recipes or start their own business, but who want to execute other peoples' recipes confidently and consistently. In this course, you'll learn the techniques that I use as a trusted food blogger and cottage baker to make consistent and delicious cakes every. time.
