Regain your confidence in the kitchen and take your gluten free baking to the next level!
The Sweet Course Academy is the first exclusively gluten free recipe and baking membership. Imagine receiving brand new gluten free recipes delivered to your inbox each month! but not only that you’ll actually learn how and why the recipe works! Here you’ll begin to understand how to convert your own recipes to gluten free and have them work each and every time. This is about mastering gluten free baking, not just making a nice cake.
It’s a celebration and you think, yes I’m going to whip up a quick birthday cake or dessert. Oh but wait it needs to be gluten free…. and delicious of course. So you simply take a well loved recipe you’ve baked a thousand times and swap the flour to gluten free. That’s it right?
You pull your great smelling cake out of the oven and you think yes! This will be fabulous.
You serve it up and while you’re giving yourself internal high fives you see the faces of your family as they chow into it. They look at it suspiciously…. “errr gluten free?” they ask.
Well that’s it. You’ve had enough. You thought this baking stuff would be easy! I mean come on, can’t you just swap the flour and it still does the same thing? At the end of the day all you really want to do is bake some delicious looking and tasting gluten free treats and to maybe impress the hell out of your family and guests!
It shouldn’t be this hard right?
Trust me when I say, I have both been there and done that, and it doesn’t have to be that hard. Having a fabulous well written gluten free recipe is the key, but knowing the how and why behind your recipe? Then you’ll be able to take your baking to a whole new level.
In no time at all, you’ll not only be baking up a gluten free storm, but you’ll feel confident every time you step into the kitchen. You won’t second guess yourself or your new found skills. You’ll be creating stunning gluten free sweet treats and wowing your family.

My name is Stacey Dadd and I’m the owner and chief baker here at Champagne and Gumboots. A successful exclusively Gluten Free cake and bakery business just outside of Perth, Western Australia. I make and decorate gorgeous and delicious cakes, cupcakes and a whole array of sweet treats.
I’m proof that gluten free baking that tastes so good your guests will never know it’s not only possible but entirely easy!
I’ve been sharing my delicious gluten free recipes with the world for the last 4 years but I know you need more. More than just a recipe that tells you what to do and when. I know, because I’ve been there, I was you! You should’ve seen my first attempt at a gluten free sponge cake. Yikes! It made a better door stop than a cake!
But over and over again people tell me their failures when it comes to baking gluten free and the same things keep coming up! That’s why I’ve created The Sweet Course Academy. A virtual recipe subscription combined with monthly gluten free baking lessons. Because it really is about so much more than just following the recipe. It’s about giving you the confidence to get back in the kitchen!
Here’s what you get!
What you won’t get!
- Hard to follow recipes that taste like cardboard
- Recipes that call for crazy ingredients you can never find or
- Flour blends you don’t want to make – NO MORE finally finding a certain flour only to 50 grams of it again!
- Critics who complain “errr no not gluten free again”
- A timed course or constant push – you can bake at your own pace
Is The Sweet Course Academy for me?
- If you’ve been recently diagnosed gluten free and you haven’t got a clue where to start (I mean what the hell is Xanthan gum anyway) and you just want to make some yummy stuff that you can actually eat.
- Or you’ve been baking for years and need some new delicious recipe inspo… but with recipes that actually work!
- If you want to understand your recipe and how you can make changes to personalize it further.
- Or you still can’t get gluten free recipes to work and you just don’t understand why your muffins don’t turn out the same!
- If your biscuits have ever spread, your cakes have flopped or scones crumbled and fell apart.
- Or maybe you’re just time poor and want a quick recipe you can whip up when the need calls, but you want one that actually works with ingredients you already have on hand.

“I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease in 2010. Needless to say, for a foodie and an avid cook, it was devastating news. Although I found savoury food a breeze as there are so many recipes which are naturally gluten free plus many easy to convert, I couldn’t say the same for sweet dishes.
Along came Stacey with the ‘Sweet Course Academy’. Unlike many online courses, Stacey’s is set at an easy pace which, as a working mum with two autistic boys, I need. I so look forward to the recipes hitting my inbox every month and so do my family 😂. From amazing scones to decadent sponges and this month’s Apple Pie, the recipes are so easy to follow, not overly complicated but best of all taste amazing!! The live blogs are so informative as is all the information we are sent about baking gluten free. I signed up for three months but will be signing up for a year when the three months are up.If you are passionate about baking gluten free, I highly recommend this course. You won’t be disappointed x” – Kaz Kelly
“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up but I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the Sweet Course Academy. The information Stacey provides has been so helpful in actually understanding why things work (or don’t work) in gluten free baking. This has made converting recipes and baking a range of sweet treats that little bit easier. Having access to some of Stacey’s delicious recipes has been a great bonus too.” – Jess W
“As soon as I was diagnosed I thought that it would be really hard to bake again and didn’t know where to start to convert recipes or adjust to the different methods of gluten free baking. Now I’m feeling confident to get into cooking gf again and having tried Champagne and Gumboots treats before, I know the recipes are going to be really awesome to bake. Thank you Stacey for the knowledge and understanding of gf baking.” – Maryanne R
” Before joining the course I didn’t know the way you should measure flour. I used to always shake it ( pack it down). Understanding what gluten actually does when you are cooking. Why it is used. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to cook grandma’s recipes to join and learn how to change them to gluten free. Or at least give it a go. I was always scared to cook because I didn’t know what to do beside packet cakes. I am learning and feel comfortable to try. Knowing if I mess up , I can ask for your advice during this course. You have given so many tips to help with the cooking.” – Sarah B
Wow just Wow! If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to cook and enjoy gluten free baking the “Sweet Course Academy” is for you. The insight of how the flours work in the recipes that we’re provided with and beautiful end results on recipes only available to course participants. The endless tips that Stacey provides through the live chats and emails also are a huge game changer. I’ll be signing on again for sure! – Cas H
- What exactly is The Sweet Course Academy?
It’s a recipe subscription delivered direct to your inbox once a month plus an online membership platform. But it’s not just recipes, learn the why’s and how’s behind your recipes to take your baking up another level. Plus receive bonus content to help you understand gluten free baking as a whole!
- What baking skill level is needed?
Any one of any skill level can join! From beginners that have only ever baked from a box, scratch bakers who know a thing or two or master chefs that have been baking for years. You’ll learn tricks to gluten free baking you’ve likely never heard of before.
- How do you receive the lessons and live videos?
In the first week of each month you’ll have a lesson emailed direct to your inbox. That’s then followed up with that months recipe! These (plus previous months recipes and lessons ) are also available on our Membership platform so you can access them any time. Then you simply hop into the Private Facebook Group for each Live video. You don’t have to watch the live videos however, it just reinforces the lessons and gives you a chance for live feedback. So if you don’t have Facebook you can certainly still join.
- Will I learn to bake gluten free bread?
No. I am purely a sweets baker, aka. patisserie. Bread baking is a whole other skill set and not one I have any urge to posses. All of the recipes and lessons I share are based around desserts only.
- Do I get access to past lessons?
Yes! When you join you get access to the membership website straight away. So you can work through older lessons and recipes at your once pace.
- What sorts of recipes will I receive?
Anything and everything, from classic gluten free scones, to apple pies, tarts, biscuits and it even includes my famous gluten free dark chocolate cake (that I use in my professional baking business!)
- Will I need to buy weird gluten free flours?
Hell NO! This is my biggest pet hate! And honestly these days there is no need to make your own flour blend or weird ones that are hard to find. The humble store bought gluten free flour blend has come a very long way and you can now bake just about anything with them! You can read more about them here. But know that most of my recipes use simple store bought brands like Well and Good, on the odd occasion I might suggest extra rice flour or hazelnut or almond meal.
- What about dairy or egg free free?
I am not typically a dairy free baker. Why? Because it’s not just a simple swap from butter to nuttelex. Dairy free baking often requires a complete re-write of a recipe to account for the extra moisture and water. As such I don’t focus on this area, though some of my recipes can be converted. I will touch on dairy free baking in one of the upcoming modules. As for egg free, no sorry at this point in time I don’t do egg free recipes or lessons.
- What about sugar free?
Ummmm no. This is not about being healthy. This is about classic baking with taste and flavour and being able to enjoy those sweet treats and desserts you grew up, only gluten free! If you’re looking to reduce your sugar intact you’re on the wrong website. There are millions (literally) of other bloggers and bakers who did this already.
- Can I join if I’m not in Australia?
Absolutely! However please keep in mind my recipes are written for Australian market gluten free flours. Every brand, every country has their own brands and therefore their own mixes of flours. This means that recipes may bake up slightly differently.
- Can I do a free trial or buy 1 month only?
You can sign up for your first month and then cancel at any time.
- Can I cancel?
Absolutely at any time. For monthly payments they are automatically direct debited from your account so cancellation requests must be received 2 weeks prior to your next payment.
