Frequently Asked Questions - All About Buttercream
Q: Can I join if I have no baking experience?
It's definitely possible but we recommend you have some experience first as the class requires a pre-baked cake for Lessons 4-6 (alternatively you can buy a sponge to use but check the Class Requirements for the size). If you need help learning to bake, our Baking Fundamentals online class will teach you how you bake the perfect sponge from scratch!
Q: What if I have no experience using buttercream?
That's absolutely no problem! We teach you our recipes and the fundamental skills for working confidently with buttercream from scratch.
Q: What else do I need to start the class?
We provide a full list of recommended tools and ingredients when you enrol. We recommend having the basic baking equipment, such as mixers, digital scales etc.
Q: Do I have to watch the class at a particular time/date?
No, you can watch the class at any time that suits you. There's no start time, and the class videos and downloadable resources are available from the release date until FOREVER! You have lifetime access and can watch and rewatch as many times as you need, whenever you need.
Q: Do I have to watch the lessons in order?
Each video is a lesson in itself, but we have structured the class in a specific order so we do recommend watching in the order of the class. However if you want to watch a particular class individually they are also suitable as standalone lessons.
Q: How long is the class?
The video duration for the whole class is roughly 1.5 hours. If you're following along as you watch you can take things at your own pace, so the class could take as long as you need!
Q: Will there be ongoing support?
Yes, we're here to support you throughout your whole journey. We've created a Facebook group for our online classes which you will have lifetime access to (you'll receive a link to this once you join the course). The group is for our community of students to support one another, share their questions, results and feedback, and most importantly, be able to ask our team anything cake related. We'll be on hand in the group to answer your questions and keep you informed and motivated.
Q: I've never had any luck with buttercream, will this course fix my problems?
This is absolutely the class for you if you've been struggling with buttercream, or if you're simply looking to perfect and advance your buttercream skills. Whilst we can't promise to fix your buttercream woes overnight, this class will become your essential go-to resource to overcome your struggles and master the art of buttercream. We teach you our methods and recipes from scratch so you're equipped with everything you need to work confidently with buttercream and practice any areas you've been having problems with.
Q: Is the course certified
Yes, at the end of completing this course you'll receive a Rosalind Miller Cake School Online certificate. We're also working on a digital badge that you'll be able to add to your website and marketing materials very soon.
