Hi everyone! We have some BIG changes to announce about My Cake School!
First of all, we want to say thank you to all of you for being a part of our site for the past 12 years!! It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been that long, but now and then I’ll see myself in one of our earliest videos and I know it’s true 😉
Whether you are a current or past member of our site, or just hop on to check on our recipes or free tutorials, we appreciate you so much! It is because of you that we have been able to do what we love for so long, and your support has meant so much.
What's the Big News?
We are expanding the Free Tutorials section and phasing out the paid membership section of our site. This means that our cake decorating videos will soon be open to everyone-- Hooray for free cake videos! 🙌
Why is this Happening?
We are still making cakes- lots of them! However, it's time to shift our focus even more to developing cake recipes. We love creating and sharing recipes, and over the last few years have watched this section of our site grow into our most popular. We will still have lots of great new content to share with you and are looking forward to this new chapter!
When will this Change Happen?
Our new format is set to take effect on August 4th! Logins will no longer be needed to access all of our cake video tutorials! All of our cake recipes will still be available-- that means tons of cake tutorials and cake recipes for everyone- no paid membership required ;0)
What about our Current Members?
We love you all for supporting us and being a part of our site! You joined or renewed this year with the expectation of a steady flow of new cake decorating videos, and with this shift of focus to cake recipes, it wouldn't be fair to keep the paid memberships going. We are finding that there is just no easy way to turn off memberships after so many years...but here is what we can offer:
If you have joined our site, renewed your membership, or given a gift membership in the past two months (June 1, 2022- August 4, 2022), we will be refunding your full $30 payment for this year's membership. There is no need to e-mail us as we will be going down the list of payments and refunding.
If you joined or renewed your membership with our site more than two months ago (Before June 1, 2022), please contact us if you would like a pro-rated refund for your current year of membership. Simply e-mail "firstname.lastname@example.org" with "Refund" in the subject line.
You will hear back from us in 1-2 days, and should expect your refund to process within a week (likely sooner).
What Parts of the Site will Disappear?
We are retiring our Forums section but will continue to answer questions beneath all of our cake decorating videos and recipes. Also, if you are a member of Facebook, make sure to join our Cake Group- there are always great cake conversations happening there! My Cake School FB Group. You can also e-mail us directly at email@example.com!
Everything relating to memberships (Login, Profile, etc.) will disappear as well.
How do I access all of my content?
All of the videos you have come to love (and the ones you haven't had a chance to view yet) will be free and accessible without having to login. You'll be able to chat with us and others in the comments section beneath the video and recipe posts rather than the Forums.
Thank you & Enjoy the Site!
Thanks so much for being a part of My Cake School! We hope that you enjoy the new format of our site and will visit often- maybe I can even convince BeBe to be in some cake recipe videos 😄 - Here's to many more years of cake adventures ahead! xoxo
I have been a member for a while and have enjoyed every video you have made!! I wish you well on this new adventure! Thank you for everything you did for us!!
Thank you so much, Karen! xoxo
Your cake decorating videos have been an inspiration. I can’t thank you enough. You have thoughtfully answered many questions I’ve had in the past. I will continue to check in!!!
Thank you Kathy!! We really appreciate your time with our site! xo
Thank you so much for your generosity! Your cakes are the absolute best!
Thanks so much, Rachel! xo
So generous of you; Thank you;
Thanks Martha!! Hope that you enjoy the new format! ;0)
I have been a member for many years and have learned so many great tips and recipes. I have other memberships too, but I really get the most from My Cake School! How nice that it will be a free forum now, so many will benefit from your site. Thank you!
Thank you so much, Kathy!! We really appreciate your membership with us over the years!
I have enjoyed your Cake School so much and have learned a lot over the years. I recently renewed my membership with the anticipation of new decorating videos, so to say I will miss your cake decorating will be an understatement!! I am so glad you are leaving the website up for us to refer back to as I refer back to them often. Good Luck with your new adventure, I will continue to check in!!! Again thank you!!
Thank you Jan! You've always been so supportive of our site & cake tutorials ;0) We will definitely have more decorating tutorials in the future- glad to hear you'll continue to check in ;0)
I always wanted to join but on a tight budget. This is great. Thank you so much 💓
Hi Holly! That's great, I hope that you have fun exploring the site!
Hi Melissa I have only been with you a short time and have enjoyed it very much .
I don't see the need for refunds I am happy not to have it.
The membership amount was so reasonable for what we received.
Thank you I hope the decorating of cakes will still exist I will visit the site regularly
Thank you so much, Mary! Yes the decorating videos will still stay and we will continue to make more now and then! More recipes are coming too! xoxo
This makes me so happy. Thank you for doing this and I am looking forward to making more of your delicious cakes.
Thanks so much, Judy!
Can you tell me how to access specialty pictures/videos - i.e. Easter cupcakes. I've belonged to this website (which I might add that I love) for many years but I have trouble finding some things. Thanks!
Hi Denise!- Here is a link to our Spring Cupcakes- it is an oldie ;0) - I had actually "retired" this one but I just put it back up so you could see it. We need to make an updated version! You will also see some Easter Chick Cupcakes linked in this post as well.
When searching, you can either search for a term (like "Easter" or "Spring") to see a listing, or you can go through our Categories. In this case, you would go to "Recipes and Tutorials"-->"Themes and Occasions"--> "Holiday Cakes" --> "Easter".
