About This Programme

We all know stories of individuals who push out cheap cakes to a very low standard and quality, yet there are others who have put in the training and offer a quality product.  How is a customer to set them apart?

CakeFlix Master is a professional programme of learning, endorsed by FDQ, a leading UK Awarding Organisation for the food industry.  FDQ  are regulated by OfQual, the UK government’s educational regulators.

Through the external validation process, the Foundation programme has been graded as a similar standard to a Level 3 qualification or an ‘A level’ in academic terms (England).

Becoming a CakeFlix Master will set you apart from the competition.  CakeFlix Master aims to set the quality standard benchmark for cake decorators across all the key disciplines.

The Foundation Programme is suitable for complete novices, but there will also be a lot of learning for the more experienced cake decorator.  All modules must be successfully completed, before advancing to the Intermediate then Advanced levels.
