The tips and detailed information provide you with a strong foundation in which you can adapt and tweak to your liking. My work looks so much more refined and elevated. It gives me the confidence to try new things and experiment because I have a strong foundation.
I am so glad I found these courses early on; it would be such a shame to do this for years and realize there could have been a better way. I am so grateful!
I love that the online course is one I can continually look back on, re-watch the videos and check in on myself that what I’m doing is resulting in the best and cleanest outcome. Further to that, some of the shorter online courses have been invaluable in learning safe and correct techniques without wastage to make isomalt sails, to temper chocolate or to expand the flavours I offer my clients. Not to mention the confidence to experiment with different flavours and combinations.
I don’t think I can articulate the amount of help Thao’s courses have given me, her advice is so detailed and precise. It allowed me to refine my skills so much faster than if I’d just learned from trial and error, YouTube etc. I’m also a perfectionist so it was less frustrating when things went wrong because Thao’s course had so many helpful tips and things to try. I knew I could keep adapting and improving my skills. I love all the recipes and use many of them every week in my business.
All DTC courses have provided fantastic methods and recipes which I have been able to harness and adapt to best suit the needs of my business. The entire DTC system and its philosophy; to focus on "maintaining quality while maximising efficiency", really is what people in the modern cake-making world desperately need.

Hi, I’m Jen and I love to bake cakes that delight my friends and family and engage all five senses. My dream is to someday publish a cookbook in which I detail a representative cake recipe for each of the 50 United States – hence my Instagram handle, @missunitedcakes.
Hi, I’m Kat. I started Halo & Horns as a side hustle in 2019 alongside full-time teaching. My business is something I am continually working towards growing, so I currently balance the business with a part-time primary teaching role.
