Ready to Layer Up your cake decorating skills?

The Layer Up program will teach you the skills you need to decorate stunning cakes no matter what your current experience is.

Instead of figuring it out yourself in 12 years, like I did, you can learn immediately what to do and which mistakes to avoid by working your way through the Layers of this program.

Start with the foundations and build on them to create gorgeous designs, using hundreds of techniques for professional looking cakes.

Layer One

Perfect the essential cake skills like assembling a cake, everything about buttercream, and how to frost a cake with smooth sides and sharp edges.

Learn lots of simple but stunning techniques for frosting and decorating cakes like a pro using these skills.

Layer Two

Master piping and use that with the skills from Layer One to create more advanced cake designs.

Learn techniques like painting with buttercream, piping flowers, and stacking, decorating, transporting and serving tier cakes.

Layer Three

Use everything you’ve learned in Layer One and Layer Two to master new techniques, creating more intricate, elaborate, and eye-catching designs. Learn how to make character cakes, wafer paper decorations and more

Develop skills like taking custom cake orders and using social media to grow your cake business.

Why Layer Up?

Every technique in the Layer Up program is filmed step by step in close up detail, so that everything looks just the way it will when you use the techniques yourself.

The instructions are highly detailed but concise, explaining and showing you everything you need to know.

Instead of hunting through hundreds of YouTube videos, you'll find everything you need in one place in the videos in this program.


The Layer Up Program is for you if:

  • Cakes are your hobby and you want to improve them to impress friends and family

  • You have a cake business and want to get more orders, increase your prices or gain followers on social media

  • You want to improve your cake skills for your career, to get noticed at work or get a promotion


Did you know you can bundle both the Layer Up program AND the Cake Club with the All You Can Cake membership and save a LOT of money?

Hi! I'm Emily!

I have over 12 years of cake decorating experience, from baking for fun to opening a cake shop, managing other cake shops, and teaching cake decorating to over 20,000 students on my online cake school and almost a million people on YouTube and social media. 

I’ve taught myself almost everything I know about cake decorating so I’ve experimented to find the simplest ways to achieve amazing results, without needing to invest in lots of expensive cake decorating tools. 

My passion is sharing my knowledge and skills and experience with others, so that they can get the same joy out of decorating cakes that I do. I can't wait to help you take your cake decorating skills to the next level!
