Virtual Cake Decorating Classes

I'm excited to announce that I'll be hosting virtual baking classes, and to celebrate this pretty big deal I decided to do an Instagram giveaway! I'm giving away two spots for one of my upcoming classes, PLUS a box of my famous chocolate sea salt caramels. I've taught cake decorating classes before and they are a blast, so I am really pumped to share these classes with you that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home.

How does it work?

Classes will be hosted on Zoom. You'll be able to bake/decorate alongside me in real time or, you can just sit back and watch. You'll be able to ask me questions live, and you'll also have access to a private Facebook group where you and other class attendees can post photos of your cakes, ask me/others questions, and cheer each other on. Finally, each class includes a packet of recipes, a list of necessary tools + supplies, and a shopping list.

Here's what you need to do to enter: ⁠

 ⁠ The giveaway opens at 10:15 am PST today, May 20th, 2020, and closes at 11:59 pm PST on Tuesday, May 26th, 2020⁠. The winner will be announced the morning of Wednesday, May 27th, 2020 and will coincide with the launch of my first official class :) ⁠ See below for the full terms and conditions.
