I've come to love in this industry the simplicity of things. Why? Because I love it when something so simple is done perfectly. This is when you can see the level of skill, time and the thought that is taken out to each and every bit of that yummy goodness and process.

This is an area that needs to be addressed especially in the cake industry. There are so many people now that are dipping their hands into new cake business ventures which is absolutely fantastic and I support them 100% but if you are going to do it.. Do it right.. LEARN.. PRACTISE..! Become a perfectionist at what you do and make your work absolutely flawless each and every time.

You need to set the bar and set yourself some standards. Take pride in your work. And show the world you are serious about what you do. Also, look to people that inspire you and work talent. Surround yourself with people who bring the best out in you and believe in you. (Over the next few months I will be showcasing some of my favourite people who inspire me on a daily basis and get me all geared up to take over the cake pop world mu ha ha ha - evil laugh he he)

There are enough resources out there from hands on classes to online classes for almost every part of the cake industry and they are there to help you become masters in your field. They are there so you don't have to sit there by yourself trying to figure it out the long way (and to avoid the tears, trust me.. there will be tears). All of the classes/courses that are available to you are created by the professionals themselves teaching you all the things you NEED to know so you can speed up your skills and start being a professional! Yee Pee!

Personally I have taken MANY courses, in particular online courses/classes as I am a full time mum and have just found it really difficult to find classes that suit my time table, plus I found the online world to be cheaper so it's a win-win for me. I've taken many courses and I still take them. I'm always trying to better myself and my knowledge. Call me a geek.. But I'm loving to learn!

That's one of the main reasons I created my own online classes because I was I couldn't believe how long it took me to master one bloody cake pop!!! I don't event know what made me continue making these things because it felt like torture every time I failed. Hence why Making Perfect Pops became a part of my life and a part of so many people now. And just an FYI - Their cake pops are AWESOME!

If there is something you want to further your skill in.. Go for it! Knowledge is power! It is what makes you stand out from the crowd. It's what separates you from everybody out there to being a professional. Take the time and learn from other peoples mistakes and if you are going to do something.. Even if its to make a cake pop.. Do it perfectly..

Some of my favourite online courses and classes:

Make Perfect Cake Pops by Me! :)

Capture Your Cake by Andy Knight and Me!

Start a Cake Business by Louise Vansleve

Shawna McGreevy Cakes by Shawna McGreevy


I'm sure there are so many more.. If there is an online course/class you love.. LET ME KNOW! I'd love to hear about it!

PS These super cute pops were made for the lovely Sarah from Sugar Coated Mama for a shoot I can not wait to see!!
