Private Classes

Virtual Private Classes

Gather up your friends, family, or coworkers for a memorable (virtual) experience full of good fun and great flavor! Virtual private classes are a great option for birthday celebrations for kids or adults, social gatherings with family or friends, or team bonding. They’re also perfect for families educating at home or in pods.

Create a private hands-on baking class sure to wow your group. You provide the ingredients and your apron and we’ll provide the instruction! A wonderful way to bring everyone together safely in the comfort of your own kitchens.
