Friday November 13, 2015

Good news for anyone interested in participating in our Hands-On classes at the 2015 Baking and Sweets Show, The Baking Academy.  All supplies and tools will be included in the price of every Hands-On class.  As well, proceeds of sales from every class,  whether Hands-On or Demo, will go to Icing Smiles, the nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. 

Every  Class requires a minimum attendance.  If that minimum attendance is not reached by October 23, 2015, that class will be cancelled and all money will be refunded.  To ensure every class reaches their minimums, we recommend a buddy system whereby you bring a friend(s)."
