Amazing! Thanks so much to the crew at Alice’s Tea Cup for helping us learn the best tricks to baking scones in such a great atmosphere! Will definitely sign up for another class soon. Also, get to bring home so many delicious treats is a great perk.

The cake and frosting provided to you in class were delicious. The the critiques that I have are: - I felt extremely rushed. There wasn't a lot of time to work with the tools and frosting. - There wasn't a whole lot of direction or a lot of options. I expected to learn some piping techniques but I only learned one. I guess I expected more variety in the teaching but I guess there's only so much you can do in 2 hours. I did have fun and enjoyed the instructors that saved it for me.

The class was very enjoyable . I gave four star because of the recipes. Recipes were not clearly stated. What kind of oven. Not everyone has a convection oven. State over temp on both kind of oven. The buttermilk used on scones - low fat or full fSt. I would like an answer to this
