"I want To Wake Up Every Morning and do Work That I Love And That Excites Me"

From Ophthalmology To Professional Cake Designer

I was in the corporate world, working to build a future. But it felt like that future 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 couldn't take a holiday unless it fit someone else’s schedule.  I had no control as to when I worked, how many hours I worked, and with whom I worked. I knew I had to make a change.

YOU can change your future... Just like I did!

Hundreds Of Past Students Said These Are The Reasons They Decided To Enroll...

How Many Of These Reasons Resonate with You?

Having the guidance, skills and training would give me  the confidence to build my “cake hobby” into a high paying “cake business”.
Building a home-based business can replace my current income.
I can create a business I enjoy and be home spending those precious years with my children.
In my job I'm practically working for free when I add up my parking, daycare and gas costs.
I've put off my own dreams and following my passion for years and a cake business can provide the fulfillment and income I need.
I'm so tired of the corporate grind, something has to change.
I would like to start a business that has low risk, low overhead and can pay the bills right away.
I need to upgrade my cake decorating skills to a professional level so I can charge more for my work and know I'm putting out the best product possible. 
I knew I needed cake design skills not culinary because I want a cake business not to work in a restaurant.
I just need a way to stay home and bridge the financial gap until my children are older.
I want to regain my confidence in myself so that I can comeback even stronger than before.
I give everything at the office and when I finally get home I have nothing left for my family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this an online course?

This is NOT an online course. This is in person instruction with multiple instructors for max 8 students

What's included in the program? Do I have to purchase any additional tools?

We provide all the tools, mixers, supplies right down to your uniform. The only thing you need to bring is your great attitude and your motivation to succeed!

I'm traveling from out of town, where will I stay?

There are many options and we will be happy to assist you. There are a variety of short term rentals and  hotels nearby.

What if I strategically take all the hobby classes over time, won't that give me everything offered in the Certification Program?

Absolutely not, the hobby classes are designed for the "weekend caker" who wants to bake and decorate a nice cake for family and friends. 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.

Is the program just a short version of a culinary course I can take at the local university or trade school?

Not at all. Our focus is very narrow in that we teach you to become a professional cake decorator. When you complete our program you will have the skills and confidence to run your own home based business, start a retail bakery/cake design shop or pursue a career with some of the best names in cake decorating. Our students have done all of that and more.

What is the difference between Lambert Academy and a University or trade school?

In general university programs teach you skills to become an employee of someone else's company. 

At Lambert Academy we teach you to be a "Cakepreneur". We give you the skills to be a great cake designer and then we take you step-by-step through how to start your own home based business.

Do you only teach how to start a home-based business? What if I want to start or buy a commercial location?

We do have a heart for the home-based business person because that is how we started out and we see a strong future for professional home-based cake designers. What we teach at Lambert Academy is perfectly applicable to a commercial cake design business as well. Both business models require the owner to be familiar with city permits, licenses and AHS licenses. Both business models require business plans, sales projections understanding of marketing, branding and of course both require awesome cake design skills.
