Cake Decorating Classes

Whether you prefer to bake your cakes from scratch or prepare them using a mix, you can turn every cake and dessert into something special using some simple – and some not-so-simple – decorating techniques. It’s easy and rewarding to decorate wonderful cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other desserts that will delight your family and friends.

Unless otherwise noted, all courses are hands-on/participatory. Multi-class courses generally require practice or additional preparation at home between classes.
