Perfect Icing &

Covering Cakes

Online Masterclass

Do you wonder why your fondant covered cakes still look old fashioned? 

Or what makes a cake look contemporary and on-trend?

Do your cakes still have rounded edges and distracting lumps and bumps? 

There's a good chance it's because you haven’t mastered the techniques for creating super sharp edges and flawless icing which is now a MUST HAVE for all contemporary cakes.

And most importantly, what makes a cake look professional?


Design and decoration is of course a huge part, but it starts with an immaculate foundation. A perfectly iced, flawless finish is absolutely ESSENTIAL for a professional result! 

You’ve probably seen lots of cakes that have great potential but the uneven icing, ‘elephant skin’ wrinkles, and wonky edges completely distract from the design.

The icing on a cake can sometimes be overlooked. But it can make or break a design.

It can certainly be the most frustrating aspect of cake-making, and demands quite a lot of know how to get it right. 

A professional looking cake is only possible once the icing has been perfected. In other words, a perfectly iced cake is what will take a cake from being ‘ok’ to having your clients saying ‘stunning’, ‘amazing’ and ‘incredible’! 

Perfect icing is the beautiful blank canvas which lets your decoration and design truly shine. Once you’ve mastered the icing, you can focus on your vision, your craft, AND your unique style…all those important elements of cake design that set you apart from the other cake designers and enable you to shine.

We're going to teach you how to achieve all of this and more in our Perfect Icing and Covering Cakes online masterclass

More than 10 years ago, Rosalind was one of the first cake designers in the UK to become well known for creating her cakes with sharp edges. 

We’re now able to share this with a global audience through our online class, where we’ll be teaching you all the techniques, tips, and secrets that Rosalind developed over 10 years of creating perfectly iced fondant cakes.

And it doesn’t stop at tiered cakes…we’ve seen many weird and wonderful gadgets sold to try and help you achieve a perfectly domed fondant covered cupcake. Believe us, you DO NOT need these. From 8 years of supplying the world famous Harrods Food Halls with our domed fondant cupcakes, we know EXACTLY how to create the perfect fondant dome on a cupcake. We’re so excited to now be able to share our easy-to-master technique with you.

Previously you could only learn these techniques from us in-person at our London cake school where our classes start from £235. You can now learn all of our techniques for perfect icing with fondant in this online class, no matter where you are in the world, for only £97!

Hi, we're Rosalind and Becky,

your teachers and guides

to Perfect Icing and Covering Cakes!

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!)"
