Welcome to My Cake School! We are so glad you're here.
If you love baking cakes or cake decorating (or would like to learn how), you have come to the right place!
Mom and I have been baking together for a long, long time ;0)
Once upon a time, I had my own cake business from home.
Here I am on a typical Saturday morning back in my cake business days. I loved creating fun designs and playing a small part of so many celebrations- although I tended to overbook myself! (This is way too many cakes for one day!)
Mom (also known as BeBe on our site) and I started My Cake School just as I was winding down my cake business. I wanted a way to share my favorite techniques with other decorators (and aspiring decorators) online. Twelve years ago, My Cake School was born!
Our site has changed a lot since we first began. It started as a membership-based cake decorating site, but over the years has expanded to include a huge collection of cake recipes as well!
Now, as of August 2022, we have phased out our paid memberships. All of our cake decorating videos are now open to everyone- hooray for tons of free cake decorating videos!!
Whether you are new to cake decorating or are looking for new ideas, we hope you'll find something you'd like to try!
As far as cake recipes go, Mom and I are constantly experimenting with new ones and adding to our collection of favorites! We talk about cake recipes every. single. day --and we love it!
If you have any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to send an e-mail or to leave a comment beneath our recipes and tutorials. We would love to hear from you!
We hope that you will stop by often to join us in our cake adventures. Thanks so much for being a part of our site! xoxo

I'm having trouble subscribing to your newsletter. It is saying I successfully subscribed but then I can't go any further. No link to set up a password? Am I doing something wrong?

I am interested in your classes, but I don't want to commit to the cost without being able to see a video (or at least a significant sample) of one of your classes. I tried to click on that option but it said that was not available.
@Cathy- Thanks for your interest in our site. We have a Free Cake Video Tutorials section where you can get a feel for what our tutorials are like. Here is a link:
Hi Melissa and Bebe
I have a question about the doctored white cake recipe. Do you know how many cups of batter it makes? I have a pan that is oval 13x9x2. Will I need 2 batches of this recipe?
Hello! So excited to find you, just joined!
Would you pls tell me the best brand/brands of non stick 8x3" round cake pans, can't wait to get started.
Hi Patricia! We really like Magic Line Brand, although we bake in 2 inch deep pans rather than 3 inch. Happy to have you!
I made the Baileys Irish Cream Cake for my step daughters birthday. She had never tasted anything as good. Now she wants me to make it for her brothers birthday. The cake was absolutely the best cake we have ever had.
Hi Lynne! We are so happy to hear it! Thank you so much for your kind words! xo
I just found you last night. Making your Lemon Blueberry Cake! I will subscribe to your School when I get paid! I feel like I hit the Jack Pot!!
Thanks Taylor! Glad that you found us ;0) Enjoy the recipe!
