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
