IDDBA Expands Mobile, Online Training With New Cake-Decorating Courses

IDDBA Cake Decorating

The International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association (IDDBA) continues to expand its mobile and online training with the addition of seven new free cake-decorating courses at training.iddba.org.

The new cake-decorating courses now available are Base Icing; Cake Toppers 1: Stems & Flowers;  Cake Toppers 2: Pre-Made Decorations; Decorating Basics 1: Writing Practice; Decorating Basics 2: Lettering; Decorating Basics 3: Shells & Borders; and Efficient Cake Production.

The courses are the latest additions to training.iddba.org and its corresponding mobile site, a growing online training resource comprised of more than 65 short videos accessible through smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers and other internet-connected devices, including some department scales. Available in both English- and Spanish-language formats, the free courses cover subjects such as food safety, customer service, cake, cheese, deli and bakery.

Wisconsin-based IDDBA also offers a special corporate customized service for IDDBA that enables companies to readily centralize their service associates’ education training at training.iddba.org and instantly track their quiz scores and course completions.

IDDBA online courses also are available on its YouTube channel.

“Knowledge builds confidence, and our new cake-decorating courses are designed to give bakery department associates the resources they need to create appealing and captivating designs that catch customers’ attention and lead to more bakery department sales,” said Mary Kay O’Connor, IDDBA’s VP  of education. “These engaging, free courses are designed to bring new associates quickly up-to-speed on cake decorating techniques, as well as serve as refreshers for more experienced bakery associates.”
