FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

1.  $30 for a year’s access to over 200 videos (and counting) sounds too good to be true.  Is this a scam?  What’s the catch?

There’s no catch, this is not a scam ;0) – Our aim is to make cake decorating lessons accessible to everyone by offering a huge amount of content for a very affordable membership fee.  We are excited about our growing community!

 

Someone asked this very question on our Facebook fan page and here are just a few of the responses posted~Click photo to enlarge. *** (You can see the full FB discussion by clicking  HERE!)

 

 

2. Why should I join when I can find cake decorating videos and tutorials online for free?

A MyCakeSchool.com membership is the best, most cost efficient, convenient way to learn cake decorating through quality video tutorials.  We are a trusted site with a growing community of beginning “students” as well as seasoned decorators.  The days of stumbling through video sharing sites are over–we have a huge amount of instructional video content on our site, and are here to help you become a better cake decorator!

With a My Cake School membership, you will have online access to every video tutorial that we have made, recipes, our message boards, and member photo gallery & member tutorial gallery.  These are invaluable tools, and our list of tutorials is constantly expanding!

3. What is the membership fee?

Membership is ONLY $30 usd for a full year.  Let’s think about this… $30 for online access to over 200 full length, quality video tutorials that we have made.  You can watch our tutorials whenever you would like, as many times as you would like, for as long as you are a member!  If we break that down, that comes to less than 15 cents per tutorial.  With the skills that you will learn from our site, the membership will pay for itself many times over through the course of the year.

The main thing that separates us from other cake decorating sites is that we do not charge per video.  If we did, you would have to spend thousands of dollars to gain access to the hundreds of videos that we offer our members.  Instead, we want to make our instructions affordable…and we want our community of decorators to grow!

 

4. What online tutorials are available for members to watch?

Mycakeschool.com has over 200 VIDEOS,  and each one is available to our members!  Most average approximately 30-40 minutes–these are full length videos and are extremely thorough.  We add new videos at least twice a month, and I am constantly drawing from members’ suggested topics.

*The easiest way to see exactly what we offer is to click on our Video Tutorials tab–here is the link:

http://www.mycakeschool.com/video-tutorials/


5. Will I have to pay more money in order to see the entire video?

No, videos in the tutorial section are complete videos that will allow you to fully grasp the techniques being demonstrated. This is what sets us apart from some of the other online cake schools. We currently have nearly 200 posted videos, and we have many, many more videos scheduled for posting.  Once a video is posted to our library, it stays there permanently.  So, new members will not have missed anything!

6. Who makes the videos?

My name is Melissa Diamond and I ran a successful cake business from home for years. A couple of years ago, I decided to take what I had learned and begin teaching.  That’s when the idea of My Cake School was born.  My mom, also known as “BeBe” by our members, runs the site with me.  Not only is she the lady behind the camera, but she is also a great source for baking and decorating advice.

You may find that some decorators are reluctant to share all of their secrets. This is not the case for me. Since cake instruction is now my one and only job, I want to share EVERYTHING with you. It makes me so happy to hear success stories from members after trying out techniques that they have learned on the site.  We are always researching new ideas, and when I discover a new technique, I can’t wait to share it with you all.

7. Can I cancel at any time?

Yes, memberships are $30/year, and renew annually.  However, at any time during the year, you can click the “subscription” button in the top right of our site and follow through with the auto-renew cancellation (or you can contact me directly.) –Due to the nature of our site, we do not give refunds (except in rare cases of compatibility issues or for members who forget to cancel their auto-renew and no longer wish to be a member.)

8. What if my computer is not compatible with the videos?

If you have ANY trouble viewing videos upon joining, contact us for advice.  If we cannot help you, you will receive a refund. The same goes for gift memberships.

9. Can I buy a gift membership for someone?

Yes!  Please do!  A Gift Membership is the perfect gift for anyone who loves cake decorating, anyone who has a creative or crafty streak, or even moms or dads who may want to decorate for their children. Look for the GIFT MEMBERSHIP button in the right side bar!

 Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will join us soon!

  17. BeBe says: #117

    Hi Lisandra, I’m not sure why it won’t accept… you might need to call Paypal Customer Service, 888-215-5506. We also accept payment with a check or money order, email us at http://www.info@mycakeschool.com if you would like that address.

    Hi Laura, we would be happy to have you as a member. Scroll to the top of this page. Under Melissa’s picture, click on the pink circle that says “Click for more information on joining.

  23. Joan says: #123

    Question – I’ve been contemplating joining for some time now and have decided I want to do this. But I have a question about recipes…will I easily be able to print them so I can use them? I’ve been to sites that make it difficult to print, either they don’t have a print option (so you have to cut and paste it into a Word document), or you can print it but you get additional pages with advertisements. How do your recipes print? I’m looking forward to joining, but am also afraid that I’ll be addicted to my computer watching all day and night. So excited!!! Thank you so much.

  24. Melissa Diamond says: #124

    Hi Joan–Thanks for your interest in our site. We do have a “print” button on our recipes–they just print off on one sheet of paper, I believe with our logo across the top ;0) – No worries of additional pages. We would love to have you!

  25. Paulette Jacobs says: #125

    My membership is over in about a week. Is it possible that there is a reduced fee for members after the first year? I am not a business and just enjoy looking at the video’s but don’t have a need for recipes, etc. Mostly, I am entertained and enjoy the little interaction between the two of you. My Mother and I wouldn’t have last two days. lol

  26. Yuka says: #126

  27. Melissa Diamond says: #127

    Hi Terry– I’m sorry if we missed a question of yours. Can you e-mail us at info@mycakeschool.com? The last question that I could find was on 9/2/13 under our Chocolate frosting recipe, and it was answered the same day.

    Thanks,
    Melissa

  29. Terry Broussard says: #129

  30. Melissa Diamond says: #130

    Happy new year Melissa. I bake from home and I really want to improve on my skills in order to meet up with the trends. I’ve been following your page on Facebook since last year and this year I’ve decided to join this great school but my challenge now is that I’m in Nigeria and I really do not know how to go about with the payment. Tips from you will be appreciated. Thanks.

  47. Jennifer Manter says: #147

    I would love to join!

  48. BeBe says: #149

    Hi Maham, I am sorry your question was overlooked. If you are in a country that is not on the PayPal list I am not sure what can be done. This is PayPal’s Customer Service number 888-215-5506. I would give them a call to find if they have a solution for you.

  49. Linda Johnston says: #150

    Do you have a video about how to stack a wedding 3 tiered wedding cake? I have been baking simple birthday and wedding cakes, but when I stack the tiered ones, they lean. I would join if I knew some of the videos were basic ones as I would probably never use the detailed ones.

  50. Aiswarya says: #151

    Hi Melissa,I would live to join mycakeschool blog..but I don’t have a paypal account…can I pay without joining paypal…please tell me what to do…

  51. Melissa Diamond says: #152

    @Linda– Yes, we have tutorials for basic tier stacking. We have videos for all skill levels. Even though you are not a member, you can still click on the “Video Tutorials” section at the top of the page & see titles and photos of all that we have to offer.

    @Aiswarya– I can e-mail you an invoice, which will allow you to pay by credit as PayPal’s guest.

  52. maham says: #153

    ok :)

  53. BeBe says: #154

    Hi Marina, yes you can access all your devices with the same member account.
