Want To Learn How To Make Soft, Moist Layer Cakes That Are Healthy?

Impress your family and friends with delicious home made, healthy layer cakes that are
mostly raw, all vegan, gluten/wheat/dairy and refined sugar free.

Let’s take your dessert skills to the next level

This class will give you the recipes, techniques and methods needed to make amazing, healthy layer cakes at home or work.

This 1.5-2 hour livestream class is designed for students of all levels. You don’t need to have a dehydrator to make the recipes from this class, you can also use your oven.

My teaching style and ethos is to give people tried and tested base recipes that you can chop and change to create something new and different.

What you’ll learn …

Soft, Moist Layer Cakes

The foundation of any great layer cake. These cakes are made using a dehydrator, so the resulting cake is similar to a baked one – soft and moist. In this class we’ll make two different flavours – chocolate and vanilla – to create the checkerboard effect in the cake.


The design of this cake all comes down to how it’s cut and assembled. We’ll cover all these details in class. Once you learn this method, you can apply it to other cakes, desserts and chocolates to create cool layers.

Fermented ‘Buttercream’ Frosting

We’ll get into some easy fermentation in this class by fermenting cashews. This makes the cream lighter, gives it a nutrient boost and makes the resulting cake a probiotic powerhouse. These “buttercream” frostings also pipe like a dream, so if you have wanted the perfect decorating cream, look no further.


No need to wrestle with frosting the cake using an offset spatula and a cake wheel. We’ll cover an easy glazing technique for getting that silky smooth finish on the cakes every time, no hassle.

Working in the industry and the huge surge in food intolerances, allergies and required diets, with Amy’s help I can face any challenge with a grin and think, “What would Amy do?”
