Frequently Asked Questions

Do I get immediate access if I choose the monthly option?

Yes! When you join Adelaide Bakes Academy, either as a yearly or monthly member you have complete access to everything, the member only Facebook group and the classes, recipes, tutorials, cheat sheets in the Member Area on Adelaide Bakes website. You also get to take part in the Better Baking Foundation program for as long as you remain a member in good standing. Please see the terms and conditions page to make sure the option you select is right for you

What sort of time commitment will this take?

Adelaide Bakes Academy is made to fit in with your life, however that looks for you. You have the choice to access the Academy and support from our Facebook group when you need it. You can choose to be active in the group or not, there are no expectations.

Many of the classes in the Academy are pre-recorded, most in segments, so you can access them when you need and find what you need quickly - without spending time watching hours of video. You'll often find printable cheat sheets with the most important details too!

Any classes held live are also recorded so you'll always be able to watch the replay at a time that suits you. The best bit is you get to fast forward, rewind, pause, skip and come back to any class at any time.

Do you offer a trial period?

Unfortunately I do not offer a trial period. As soon as you join Adelaide Bakes Academy you have complete access to all of the classes, resources and recipes that can not be recovered. If you'd like to 'trail' being a member to see if it's right for you, simply select the monthly membership option. As a monthly member you can cancel at any time with just 48 hours notice before your next monthly payment is scheduled.

What ongoing value do I receive?

The Adelaide Bakes Academy already has so many foundation recipes, techniques and classes ready for you in the Member Area. My aim is to keep these up-to-date and added to to make sure the classes remain relevant and help you achieve results in your baking with more ease and less stress! This means updates and new classes are added to the library over time. We have one Live Q&A in the Facebook group each month I am also available within the Facebook community to support, trouble shoot, help you with access and make sure you find what you need.

This is only a hobby, I don't think it's right for me

Whether you're a hobbyist or business owner, there is no denying that time is precious to all of us. The recipes, classes, tips, tutorials and cheat sheets are developed for any baker who wants to save time, have less stress and frustration when baking, use recipes and techniques that are simple, tried and tested, that give a great end result. The classes and techniques are all broken down into stages to make learning easy and quick meaning every baker can achieve that professional, clean look to baked goods.

I have a question that hasn't been answered

Of course! Please reach out to me, I would love to help you decide if joining is right for you or not. Please email me at

How is this different to anything else available online?

Great question! Rather than a course that is specific to one particulr skill set, I offer greater value in providing recipes, classes, techniques, guides and cheat sheets on many baking skill sets, because in all honesty, we rarely ever just bake one item over and over again. Within ABA we cover:

  • Cookie decorating with royal icing and fondant decorations
  • Cake foundations, for both round and square cakes, including recipes, batter guides, baking guides, buttercream volume charts (so you never run out half way through!), assorted decorating techniques
  • Making macarons! I have been known as the Macaron Queen, making over 1000 macarons per week in Adelaide Bakes! My Macaron classes cover plain, dual toned, chocolate, vegan and character (themed) macarons!
  • Choux pastry - making delicious cream puffs and eclairs, including smooth and delicious fillings
  • I offer ongoing value in updated recipes, charts, guides, calculators and classes to keep the Member Area growing.
  • You also receive access to me and our private Fb community for support, encouragement, trouble-shooting, advice and fun!
When compared to similar priced online courses, the value within ABA is far greater and is on-going!
