Class 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.

    I would have actually liked to bake the cake (versus just assembling it).

    The birthday cake class was wonderful! My 13 year old has planned to open her own bakery for years now and this solidified her dreams all the more. The cake was delicious too!

It says 16 and older but then says under 16 must be accompanied by adult can my 9 yr old take the class as long as I’m there?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, children of all ages are welcomed to come and join in. The school does ask that all children under the age of 10 be assisted by an adult, so they can purchase one spot for the 2 of them. Children above 0 but under 16 can participate on their own, but still, need an adult present at the facility during the class.
