Our BAKE!-cations® are the ultimate experience for the home baker! We guide you through a comprehensive education in baking techniques in a fun, exciting, relaxed, and always hands-on in a classroom full of good humor and expert instruction. Your BAKE!-cation® includes breakfast and lunch every day. You'll need an empty suitcase to bring home all the great food you've made!

You’ll leave BAKE! With our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, all the food you made in class and great coupons.
