This comprehensive online course will guide you through the entire DTC baking system and philosophies which focus on maintaining quality while maximising efficiency.
We'll show you how to take control of your valuable time and processes so that you are able to achieve reliable results, every single time. Less time spent on processes and systems means more time to create. Now that's a scenario we would all like to get onboard with.
One base recipe, 10+ flavour variations using the same base and techniques.
DTC Vanilla Cake Recipe
Our famous DTC Vanilla Cake recipe is famous for a reason, well a few reasons. The recipe is super simple, the ingredients widely available and the method extremely easy to follow. The result is a delicious vanilla cake that is not too heavily dense like a mud cake but not too light like a sponge cake, the perfect structure and consistency to pair with buttercream.
The base recipe is:
🍰 Eggs + Sugar +Thickened cream (35% milk fat content, otherwise known as whipping cream or heavy cream)
🍰 Plain flour (or cake flour) + baking powder
Yes, that's it. Every one of the 10+ flavour variations contain the same base ingredients. Do you realise how much prep time this will save you? Along with our super efficient processes and system, you'll cut your time in the kitchen at least in half!
The same DTC Vanilla Cake Recipe (and any other DTC cake recipe) can be used to make cupcakes and baked donuts. Better still, the recipes can be converted to be gluten free, eggless or lactose free. Can this get any more efficient!
10+ Flavour Variations
Included are DTC recipes for:
🧁 Earl Grey 🧁 Chai Tea 🧁 Lemon 🧁 Caramel

Our Approach to Teaching
We take efficiency VERY seriously, so you won't find any fluff here. This course is designed to save you valuable time which is why you won't have to sit through hours and hours of boring videos.
The course curriculum includes detailed written materials and videos for each module. The written materials contain step by step instructions, explanations, useful charts & illustrations and lots of valuable tips. The videos act as complimentary materials to further illustrate our process. Think of it as a very detailed text book with explainer videos.
In the videos, Thao does not speak to the camera. There are no jargons, no awkward chats or unnecessary time wasters - just straight to the point and visually stunning instructions. This makes referring back to the videos extremely easy as you won't have to scrub through hours of video to find what you're looking for.
A detailed FAQ will help guide you through any troubleshooting issues. Furthermore, each module contains a comment section where you can interact with the instructor and ask as many questions as you'd like. You'll be supported all the way through your journey with this course. We got ya!
