BAKE!-cations

Fantasy Camp for Home Bakers

Our BAKE!-cations® are the ultimate experience for the home baker! We guide you through a comprehensive education in bread and pastry techniques in a fun, exciting, relaxed and always hands-on classroom full of good humor and expert instruction. We feature both week-long and weekend BAKE!-cations® that include breakfast and lunch everyday, and we promise that you'll need to bring along an empty suitcase to bring home all the great stuff you've made.

One of the "best, most affordable" cooking classes in the world.

BAKE!-cation Weekend: Pastry 2.0

There are so many delicious and interesting pastries to make we thought we'd create a 2nd version of our popular weekend class for all you baking enthusiasts. Join us to travel through the U.S. for brownies, doughnuts, cupcakes and a whole grain muffin to Europe for danish, mandelbrot (Jewish biscotti), and countryside tarts. We'll end our journey in North Africa with a Tunisian orange cake. You'll learn a useful range of baking techniques from yeasted dough creation to tart dough mixing and rolling to cupcake decorating. Your BAKE!-cation weekend includes two breakfasts and two lunches. You'll head home with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them and all the pastries you made in class (enough to fill a suitcase). This experience will leave you with sweet memories guaranteed.
