Cake Decorating Videos at Your Fingertips

Have you ever eyed the fancy desserts at a restaurant or a bakery and wondered in awe, “How’d they do that?” Maybe you’ve tried your hand at whipped cream and homemade cupcakes from scratch and are ready to move on to things like flan, meringue or ganache. Either way, Baking and Cake Art Academy’s cake decorating videos are here to assist you. No more fumbling with a bulky cookbook filled with hard to read and hard to understand techniques, no more taking hours of your week to go to in-person cake decorating classes. With the online cake decorating videos that Baking and Cake Art Academy offers, you can do it all online and on time.

Baking and Cake Art Academy is an online school where you can learn almost anything about baking, decorating and cake art. These online cake decorating videos have something to offer whether you are a beginner who’s never baked anything that wasn’t from a box or a professional baker with your own specialty cake business or a skill set that falls anywhere in between! If you are a beginner, don’t be deterred by the fear of technical jargon and techniques that you can’t understand. The instructor has designed each and every cake decorating video to be enjoyed by people ages 7 and up and the classes start at just $.99!

The classes are taught by Susan Holtz, award winning pastry master chef, artist and instructor. She brings a unique approach to teaching and strives to support entrepreneurs all the while being eco-conscious.

The ease of use and the ease on your pocketbook make these classes invaluable. The cake decorating video library is similar to and is as easy to use as an iTunes library. You simply sign up and create an account, enter your billing information and get started. As an added bonus, you can choose to watch an introduction to each class before you decide to purchase it.
There are three categories of time you can choose to spend on cake decorating videos, 10-30 minutes, 5-10 minutes and under 5 minutes. The categories of lessons range from the necessities such as whipped cream, a simple cake or frosting to specialty items such as flour and gluten free desserts as well as fat free frosting. Now a days, if you have a specialty cake business you will most likely be asked to bake some sort of diet-specific pastry for people with diabetes, gluten or nut allergies, dairy allergies, etc., so having these videos at your disposal could prove very practical.

The cake decorating videos you’ll find are not just informative, they are actually entertaining and keep the viewer engaged throughout.

The availability of all this knowledge being not only at your fingertips, but also at the click of a button, will bring you back to Baking and Cake Art Academy again and again. There is no other website that offers cake decorating videos with the same caliber of instruction, ease of use or affordability.

About Susan Holtz

Susan Holtz is a natural born teacher with decades of professional experience as a baker, instructor, and entrepreneur…and she has a portfolio of accolades to show for her efforts in each of these arenas. What Susan takes just as much pride in though, are her hundreds of graduates now working in the culinary field. Most recently, Susan not only has served as Director of Culinary Arts at West Valley Occupational Center in Woodland Hills, CA (where she created the curriculum and designed the classroom laboratory) and as an Adjunct Faculty Instructor in Cake Decoration at Los Angeles Mission College in Sylmar, CA (where she also developed the curriculum), but she has also just established the Baking & Cake Art Academy, Inc. in order to provide an online forum and laboratory to inspire baking and cake art enthusiasts and professionals everywhere to achieve their highest goals. Entertaining and informative, dedicated and patient, Susan delivers her instruction in a uniquely low key manner, but with a quite evident passion for sharing her wealth of knowledge on baking from her own academic, apprentice and work experience. She really knows how to encourage her students and make the learning process fun so that all levels of students find her teaching understandable and inspiring! Susan’s fascination with cake decorating started in the sixth grade. In those days, it was all about the star tip and the rose nail! Since then she has studied and worked with some pretty impressive names in the pastry/baking/restaurant fields: Mary Sue Milliken & Susan Fenniger of “Too Hot Tamales” fame, Nancy Silverton, Patrick Terrail, Gerard Joel Bellouet, Mark Carter, Francois Vignac, and Joe Ortiz, Kamolmal Pootarakfa, Gordon Hamersley, Hugh Carpenter, Yolanda Chen and LiE Wong. (You can find out more about all these phenoms on!) Ever the student as well as the teacher, Holtz has studied a broad spectrum of specialized international cuisines, including Japanese, Chinese, French and Thai, as well as baking and cake art methods. Susan has earned certification from The Wilton School of Cake Design, then in Chicago (pulled sugar and international cake art methods – Philippine, Australian, English); the American Institute of Baking in Manhattan, Kansas; Joe Ortiz of Gayle’s Bakery in Capitola, California (artisan bread baking); St. Moritz Luxury Chocolates in Beverly Hills; with New York’s Colette Peters (fondant techniques); Roland Mesnier (the very intimidating process of pulled sugar); Scott Clark Woolley (gum paste techniques); Ron Ben-Israel (mold-making for jeweled embellishments); and Johnson & Wales in Denver, Colorado (advanced pastry & bread making).
