So what exactly is the Dinkydoodle Cake Academy?
I have a massive passion for teaching, I LOVE sharing , I am addicted to enabling others to achieve great things in cake. When the pandemic hit, I was unable to teach in the conventional classroom and had to find other ways of sharing my skills.
The academy began as an on line learning platform where I would pre record tutorial videos for people to purchase and watch at their own leisure. These worked very well, but they were missing something - YOU. They were missing the interaction of the student. I wasn't able to gauge how well you'd done, if you had struggled or had problems, and I wasn't able, in real time to answer your questions.
So I began to run live and interactive classes. They were a resounding hit!.
Each class is split into manageable sections, taught live through Facebook over a period of time ( it maybe just a day, a weekend or even over a few weeks) Each session is recorded live, and I interact with the students, answering their questions, showing them all elements to the cake and allowing you to make along with me at home .
once the lives are over, the recordings are uploaded onto this website ( within the course content) and are available to the student forever - they are also yours to download and keep)
Because each lesson is run live you can only sign up for it a few weeks before the class is due to run. 10 days before it begins I close registration and introduce myself to the private Facebook group associated with the class ( There's a different group for every class, and they never close, even once the course is finished)
The students all get to know each other , we share ideas, are encouraged to ask questions, share our process most of all have A LOT OF FUN.
