What you'll learn in this pastry class:

We should call this class chocolate and vanilla! We’ll make a buttery yellow cake with chocolate icing and a moist chocolate cake with a fluffy white frosting. This class will introduce you to two different cake making techniques, and you’ll bake along with our chef and assemble your own layer cake and decorate cupcakes, and you’ll learn a few different frosting techniques.

              Virtual Class FAQ


              What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

              One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

              How many people is my purchase good for?

              Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

              Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

              You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

              Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

              Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


              Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

              While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!


              Remote Learning

              This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

              Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

              Refund Policy

              Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.
