A Message From Lesi and Her Graduates
From The Desk Of Lesi Lambert
- Calgary Alberta, Canada Dear Friend, Valued Customer, Fellow Entrepreneur, Future Success Story... Are you considering a career change in the upcoming year but don’t know where to start? Are you facing a possible layoff and an uncertain future? Considered becoming a professional cake designer!
Welcome To The Lambert Academy Professional Cake Designer Certification Program
I am a firm believer in building your own lifestyle. I was once in the corporate world, working to build a future. But it wasn’t mine. I was an employee. I made good money but I was not enjoying my life. I felt like my time belonged to someone else. I could not take a holiday unless it fit someone else’s schedule. I was scripted as to when I worked, how many hours I worked, and with whom I worked.
I am here to tell you that YOU can change all of that. Just like I did!
It will give you all of the hands on skill building and information that you will need to create your dream job or work in your dream profession.
Program registrations are ongoing and new sessions run every other month. HOWEVER, we are now creating a wait list as class seating is very limited. This limited seating ensures that your learning experience will better target your individual requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions and...
What Are Your Qualifications To Teach a Course Like This?
Q: What's included in the program? Do I have to purchase any additional tools?
A: All your tools are included, the only thing you need to bring is your great attitude and your motivation to succeed.
Q: What if I strategically take all the hobby classes over time, won't that give me everything offered in the Certification Program?
A: Absolutely not, the hobby classes are designed for the weekend caker who wants to bake and decorate a nice cake for family. These classes do not go into the depth that a professional requires to have the skills in both decorating and business. Think of it like going to the YMCA for swimming lessons and comparing that to the training and coaching an Olympic athlete goes through in order to compete. Both are swimming lessons but there is a huge difference in skill level.
