What is this course about?
This course goes through all of the stages of planning out your cake project from deciding on the design and sketching it out, to setting up a timeline of the steps to accomplish your project and when to do them.

Why do I need a plan?
Are you feeling overwhelmed with your cake projects and all the steps needed to complete them?
Do you feel like there's just too much thinking involved and you don't know where to start?
Does the thought of creating an organized system seem too daunting?
Maybe you ask yourself, what day can I ice the cake? What about adding fondant? How many days before can I start working on the project?
When decorating cakes, having things come up at the last minute that you forgot to account for, is very stressful.
Planning and organizing out all your cake project steps is crucial in alleviating a lot of stress and hassle.
No more freaking out at the last minute, because you forgot to do some part of the project or forgot to order a certain supply.
...and the best part, no more endless lists of tasks and ingredients running through your head all the time.
You've got it all organized...Everything will be at-a-glance.
How does the course work?
This course is laid out into two modules with lessons included in each one.
Using the cake project planner as the guide, we'll be going through the stages of planning out a large cake project.
(If you feel you do not need the video instruction on how to use the planner and how to plan your cake projects, you may want to check out the planner-only page where the planner is available without the corresponding course. You can find that by clicking here: The Ultimate Cake Project Planner (without course).)
Here are the modules in this course:
In the first module, we'll go through all the steps to planning out your cake project from designing it to listing out your timeline, so you've got your whole plan laid out in front of you. I'm even going to go through a real life planning example of a cake I made, so you can see all the steps in action.
In the second module, I'll show you how I organize my planner, plus how to use the pdf printable version. I'll also show you how you can edit the planner in the Word and Google Doc versions.

I'm Kara Jane, the blogger behind I Scream for Buttercream. I'm a true Texan with a sure 'nuff Texas accent and I love ALL things cake related.
I'm into realistic cake design that uses your own creativity to make unique cakes for your family, friends or for cake business clients.
I specialize in more of a realistic cake design...designs that aren't crazy, or too over the top, but enough of a challenge to keep me learning. When I was taking orders, customers were just not that interested in paying for those super-mega-cakes with over-complicated cake bases that needed to be built. While those cakes ARE super cool, I've found most people just want something less expensive, but still created and customized just for them.
I also feel like most cake decorators and those who want to start out in cake decorating, really would just like to make beautiful, memorable cakes for their friends, family or customers and not have to stay up for multiple days and nights to get it done. And yes, that CAN be done. You don't have to be a professional to make awesome cakes!
My objective is to teach cake decorating with a more realistic approach. I've figured out what actually works in the real world and what is actually do-able. I teach realistic cake decorating with techniques, systems and organizational tips that have worked for me.
I've been obsessed with cake since I was a kid and my love for it grows every day. Learn more about me.
