Discover the business behind the bakes

Spending your days dreaming about wedding cakes? Join us in the Business Tier, a business course for cake makers – with the perfect blend of practical advice, useful resources and a community of like-minded women waiting to support you. It’s time to connect with your purpose and make more money doing what you love.

You already know how to make beautiful cakes. But you want more from the business.

Although you love what you do, running a cake business is hard work and juggling day-to-day admin can feel like wading through thick buttercream. Deep down, you have greater ambitions but you’ve never known where to turn for advice, until now.

It’s time to stop scrolling through Facebook trying to find the answers to your questions, and learn the processes you need to book wedding cake orders consistently.

Making a wedding cake truly honours your time, expertise and profits, more than making six Disney cakes in a row. It’s also one delivery, one customer and one set of payments.

Imagine a few months from now, fully embracing your career as a wedding cake designer, feeling a sense of purpose and escaping the overwhelming admin once and for all.

When someone asks what you do for a living, instead of saying “I make cakes”, you can confidently answer:  “I’m a wedding cake designer”

This is more than just another cake course

So what’s it all about? The Business Tier is a one-stop-shop all-you-need resource, full of real-life advice on everything from confidence to consultations. Plus there’s friends to be made along the way.

Perhaps you’re already busy making cakes for family and friends, but you want a new challenge.  Or you’ve left a corporate career behind and want to start a business of your own. Being a wedding cake designer will give you a whole new sense of purpose and fulfilment. 

Finally get your questions answered: from ‘what should I charge’ to ‘I’ve got an enquiry email, how do I answer it?’. Everything you need to move forward with your cake business can be found in this course, including practical solutions around logistics, customer communication, getting yourself in front of your ideal client, deliveries and more.

You already know that wedding cake design can be flexible around your lifestyle. That’s why it’s on your radar. So take the Christmas holidays off, work less hours or only during term time. Find the flexibility you are dreaming of, because that’s the beauty of being your own boss.

So if your kids are reaching new milestones and you want to reclaim your sense of self, or you want to show friends and family that your bonafide business is growing, this course offers you consistent support and resources so you can achieve success on your terms.

Meet Lauren

Hi, I’m Lauren, the expert in your corner for all things cake confidence. I’m the owner of The Honey Bee Wedding Cake Company, and a mum to twin boys.

Running a successful company whilst parenting twins hasn’t always been easy, but it has grown from an occasional hobby to a successful full time business. Now I teach cake makers how to take charge of their ambitions and grow a wedding cake business with clarity and confidence.

You know what makes me smile? Hearing from women who have ditched their corporate jobs in favour of the flexibility that cake business ownership offers. The magic of creating your own work schedule, and meeting happy couples along the way, is something truly special. And along the way I see them truly find their sense of purpose, excelling at what they do, and loving it!

Think of me as your personal cheerleader, with a teaching background and a Business Management degree under my arm. Plus I’ve got the nod of approval, as a recommended supplier for luxury hotels including The Dorchester, The Ned, and Chiswick House.

The best news? I’ve made the mistakes, been there, done that and can guide you through the process, so you can enter the wedding industry feeling supercharged and ready to take bookings.

No more little cake maker

 

“Before this course I had only made two wedding cakes and they scared the life out of me! The course taught me what I had been doing wrong and so much more. I’ve been in business for around eight years, but it’s only since taking Lauren’s course, that changes started to happen. I am now attracting the right clients and have had a rebrand. I am no longer the ‘little cake maker’ but a professional luxury wedding cake designer.”

A return on investment 15 times over

“This time last year, I was taking on loads of small orders for birthday cakes, which meant I was run off my feet, but not making very much money. By the time the course ended, I had taken sixteen new wedding cake orders, and I have been steadily booking (and successfully delivering) wedding cakes throughout the year. Thanks to the pricing training included in the course, each booking that I take is priced correctly and is profitableThis means that I am making more money, while also having time to step out of the kitchen and actually work on growing my business. I’ve made back my investment more than 15 times over.”

I’m now a preferred supplier

“Since starting the course only 6 months ago, I’ve booked 5 wedding cakes over £500 and they are my ideal clients. I’ve had a table at two wedding fairs so far and I’m now a preferred supplier at both of these venues. Running your own business can be quite lonely but being a part of the course connected me to an amazing group. We cheer each other on and push each other to grow even more.”
