Please Note: Seasonal Variations in Cake Design

In our hands-on cake baking class, we prioritize using the freshest, seasonal ingredients to enhance your baking experience. As a result, please be aware that certain toppings, particularly our puree fruit toppings, are subject to seasonal availability. This may lead to variations in cake designs and decorations based on the ingredients available at the time of your class. We ensure that these changes will only add to the quality and learning experience of your baking journey. Thank you for your understanding and embracing the delightful unpredictability of seasonal baking!
