Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this cake class:

What’s that incredible smell coming from the kitchen? Nostalgia. Here, you’ll build your own 6” Milk Bar B’day cake. Learn how to layer vanilla funfetti cake, frosting and crumbs with your favorite childhood flavors and complete the look with our unfrosted, peek-a-boo sides. 

Then, turn your cake scraps into scrumptious little B’day truffles. But don’t stash them in your locker! Take home all your hard work.

  • This is not a traditional baking class, but a class where you learn how to assemble a cake.

  • Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the entire duration of class.  
  • Please wear comfortable, casual clothing and flat, comfortable shoes.

    It was a lot of fun but I was disappointed that we didn't actually bake the cake. It was just a cake layering class.

    Anonymous review on 1/24/2019
    I enjoyed the class and am very happy I did it! The only reason I dinged it a star is because they dont tell you ahead of time how basic of a class it is and that some things are already pre-made, which was a little disappointing to think you were getting the full A-Z experience and not. Very helpful otherwise and learned alot, cake came out amazing:)

    Really enjoyed this class! For those looking for an actual baking class, keep in mind that everything in this class is pre-made and given to you in containers. That being said, I learned some great tips for baking and can't wait to have a day to make my own Momofuku birthday cake.

Question from Sunanda S.
Hello! Would I learn how to bake a cake in addition to decoration? And, is this class ok for beginners? Haven't baked before but am a decent cook.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Sunanda! The class is a cake assembly class. It would be too hard and not enough time to bake the cakes and assembled in a two hour time period. Momofuku Milk Bar baked the cakes for the students and the students will assemble our signature layer cakes! Students will receive the recipe so they can bake them at home if they'd like to. Hope this helps!

Hi! How long does the cake last? If I came to a Wednesday class, would the cake be okay to consume for a Saturday birthday?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there, yes, it would still be okay to consume on Saturday. The cakes need to be refrigerated. And they last for one week in the refrigerator or can be frozen for one month! Hope this helps!
