Hi, we're Rosalind and Becky,

your teachers and guides

to All About Chocolate Ganache!

Rosalind, Creative Director - "I founded Rosalind Miller Cakes because of my love of art and design, as well as cake of course! I was an artist and a lecturer at London's Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design for many years before turning my hand to cake. I wanted to create cakes that were centre-pieces in their own right - in other words, edible works of art.

The taste of the cake has always been just as important as the design, and we take pride in our recipes and ingredients. My daughter and Managing Director of Rosalind Miller Cakes, Yasmine, has been vegan for 2 years, and has been instrumental in the development of our vegan recipes. In her words, they're the best vegan cakes she's ever tasted!"

Becky, Production Manager and Senior Teacher - "I've been a professional cake maker and baker since 2015 after studying Decorative Arts. I've always loved being creative and making others happy by baking treats for them. Before joining Rosalind Miller Cakes, I worked in a variety of different bakeries learning different skills, and since joining I discovered my passion for teaching. Unsurprisingly I have a HUGE sweet tooth (definitely a job requirement), and fun fact, I'm definitely a buttercream gal (although since working here fondant icing and I are now good pals!)"

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I join if I have no baking experience?

Absolutely, we teach everything from scratch! Plus we're giving you our fool-proof chocolate sponge recipe for you to bake cakes to practice the techniques on.

Q: Why ganache instead of buttercream as an under-coating?

Buttercream is often used as an alternative under-coating when icing cakes with fondant/sugarpaste icing. However buttercream doesn't achieve the same effect as ganache. Ganache is much more effective at creating a smooth surface for the icing. It's much sturdier and more stable, and sets hard which enables you to achieve the all-important sharp edges.

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 hour 32 mins plus an intro to what our students can expect from Rosalind Miller Cake School Online. 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: 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.
