Hi Budding Cake Designers!


Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed out about your cake orders and wondering where to look for design inspiration?


Perhaps you’re starting to feel stuck in a cake decorating rut, wondering how to create unique designs for those last-minute orders…


Or finding yourself spending days and days trying to come up with something new for your portfolio or a bespoke customer order…only to end up with complicated designs that take days and days to create, eat into your profits, and ensure you end up working for peanuts…


Maybe all your Saturdays are taken up with delivering wedding cakes, only to spend even more time nervously assembling and finishing them on site in full view of the guests and venue staff?


Have you ever wondered how professional cake designers consistently come up with fresh new designs, never undersell themselves, and never have terrible accidents with collapsed cakes?


Sound familiar?

If you’re really honest it sometimes feels like making beautiful, bespoke tiered cakes is just far too stressful and really doesn’t pay enough.


You feel a knot in your stomach the night before every cake delivery, wondering if the tiered masterpiece you’ve created will survive the delivery journey, not to mention regret that the cake was way under-priced because you were put on the spot to quote for a bespoke order without a clear idea of how to create it.

And if nothing changes? You’ll probably reach breaking point, and you’ll be left wondering whether to carry on with what you thought was your dream career that was supposed to give you creative and financial freedom. 

I'm Rosalind and I've felt those same feelings...

...lack of design inspiration and the pressure of not knowing whether you’ll be able to meet your customer’s expectations. Plus the uncertainty of knowing where to find reliable techniques for the essential cake-making steps (like stacking tiers), and for those designs I wasn’t sure how to make. And don’t get me started on the pre-delivery day dread!


Unsurprisingly enough, this all led to a sense of unfulfillment and burn-out.


It felt like I was trapped in a cycle of uncertainty and cake-stress that wasn’t fulfilling my dreams, leaving me feeling pretty disillusioned with cake-making at times.


As Rosalind Miller Cakes grew, things changed, and as we started teaching more and more classes, we decided that it was our mission to free other cake makers from all of that stress and guesswork. We wanted to make cake-making straightforward and more enjoyable than stressful. To simplify the process and make creating a new cake design exciting rather than fear-inducing. 


So we opened Rosalind Miller Cake School, and set out on a mission to put the joy back into cake making for those that had lost it. And to teach simple, transferable techniques that can be used to make beautiful cakes but don’t take endless hours to create, giving our students design freedom and enabling them to actually make money from their work. 

Today we run sold-out classes, both face-to-face at our London cake school, and online, so you can access them wherever you are in the world.


In fact 1000s of people, both complete beginners and advanced cake makers, have learned with us and benefitted from our 10+ years of experience in running an award-winning cake studio and supplying cakes to Harrods and royalty around the globe.

We teach our students everything we've learned from our professional experience as a successful cake business, so we know that the knowledge and techniques we’re sharing really do work.

Many of our alumni now have their own cake businesses, and have transformed their cake-making experience and re-ignited their passion for cake design.

Do you want to regain your cake making confidence?


Safe in the knowledge that you can easily create on-trend, bespoke cake designs that your customers will love and don’t take up all your time, enabling you to turn your passion into profit and make money from your cakes? If you want to feel that passion for cake making again, you can get our step-by-step guide breaking down the decorating and stacking techniques into easy-to-follow video tutorials, that will open those doors for you.

Class Price

Hi, we're Rosalind and Becky!


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!)"
