Buttercream Cake Mastery

Anyone can create buttercream masterpieces with this comprehensive, start to finish course.

There is no other course as complete as this.

A lot of the things done in baking and cake decorating today have very old roots. Many of them don’t necessarily apply anymore but you still do them, why? Because everyone else does them that way and no one is telling you otherwise. Until now.

> Forget wasting hours on end combing through Youtube videos.
> Forget wasting hard earned cash on mini courses that only show you a section of the whole process i.e buttercream recipe, a particular finish or just a style of decorations.

Buttercream Cake Mastery is
the ONLY course you'll need to learn everything

Learn from an Industry Leader

Hey there

I’m Thao, founder of Don’t Tell Charles, creator of the original Concrete Cake and a leader in the contemporary buttercream cake movement in Australia and across the world. I am well known for my unique buttercream cake designs and no-fuss, time saving systems and processes. 

Here’s the thing, cake decorating has been made to seem complicated in some areas when it doesn’t need to be. My approach to baking and cake decorating or anything else in my life really, revolves around maximising efficiency. I always look for the simplest, quickest way possible. Now this is not the same as cutting corners. This is about working smart.

Why Working Smart Matters

Regardless of what stage you’re at in your cake making journey, whether you’re just starting out, learning, developing your own style or already a well trained professional, you have the same 24 hours in a day as I do, and as the person next to you. How much you can achieve within that 24 hours depends greatly on how long you take to complete one or multiple tasks. The maths is simple:

Less time spent working = more time for family, personal care, sleep, relaxation, you name it etc.

If you own a cake business or are wanting to start one, from a business perspective: 

Less time spent on a task = less cost & more profit

So how do you go about spending less time working? You employ efficient recipes, techniques and processes.

This is where I can help.

Frequently Asked Questions

You decide when to start and finish your course. All of our online courses are completely self-paced so you get to work at your own pace and in your own time. 

Once enrolled, you get access to the course content for life. Yes, that means you only pay once. We don’t really understand those courses where you’ll only get limited time access to your course materials. We’re here because we genuinely want to help you along in your learning journey, so lifetime access it is. You will also receive any future updates to that course, automatically and free of charge. 

The recipes list ingredients both in grams and ounces. We don’t use cup measurements as they are not suitable for scaling recipes due to their inconsistent nature. 

The Bonus Content gives you access to our DTC buttercream recipe which is a meringue based recipe using whole eggs. All the techniques, processes, tips and tricks taught in this course can be applied to any meringue based buttercream such as Swiss or Italian buttercream. 

The short answer is no, you can’t. 

The long answer is no you can’t because it is so much more than just recipes. Yes, our recipes are simple and delicious. However, there are plenty of simple and delicious recipes that you can find for free on the internet. The recipes are only a very small component in a  much more comprehensive system that is designed to be efficient as a whole. Our courses contain a wealth of information, recipes, methods, processes and insider tips and tricks that you cannot find anywhere else.

For sure, the recipes will elevate your cake game. But the whole course will elevate your cake LIFE!
