8 years ago I was miserable in a PR and marketing job, commuting long hours and fed up of the politics of corporate life. I was made redundant and had always dreamed of having my own cake business so decided to go for it – what did I have to loose!? I did a course like this one which armed me with everything that I needed to know and 8 years later I have a thriving business. I now have two children and juggle mum and business life, have a good work life balance and most importantly I’m making money to support my family and lifestyle. I love working for myself and I want to share my passion and show you that you to can have the working life you dream of.

Hi, I’m Nathalie and I started Rock Bakehouse after I was made redundant from my PR & Marketing job in 2011. With no redundancy package and having always dreamt of starting my own cake business I decided to just go for it. It’s been hard work and I’ve learnt a lot of lessons along the way (which I share with you so that you don’t make the same mistakes) but I’m running a business that allows me to have the flexibility to spend time with my children as well as the financial means to lead a comfortable life. I want to inspire you and show you that you can run a cake business and make money, and actually make the most of self employed life.

TESTIMONIALS – read what some of our past students have to say about the course!
“I was totally on the fence about starting my own cake business – I loved baking but was overwhelmed by what I didn’t know, and at the prospect of trying and failing. Nathalie’s online cake business course gave me the push I needed – you can read and process materials in your own time, the advice and worksheets on subjects like pricing and marketing are invaluable, and it’s lovely to have a community of other bakers and prospective business owners online – as well, of course, as Nathalie, who is always happy to help with any questions you might have. I had queries from legalities to cake decorating tips (yes, she will answer those too!) I absolutely recommend this course, however far along you are in your cake business journey.” Melissa, Black Horse Bakery
“Your advice is fab Nathalie! Because of what you’ve said time and time again I think I have my prices just about right now…yes a lot of people disappear once I give them a quote but the kind of customers I want are prepared to pay and happily. If you hadn’t reiterated how to value your time i would probably be charged a lot less. And now having a business but an expensive hobby….thank you!” Shazia, Shazia Bakes
“Thank you, this course has given me the confidence to push forward” Anastasia
“I feel so much more confident to price my cakes properly” Susan
