All in the Icing’s calendar of events boasts a variety of BYOB baking classes that reveal the ins and outs of crafting confections including cakes, piecrusts, and gourmet bread. In Baking Techniques 1, burgeoning bakers practice their pastry-bag quick draw against classmates while honing their cake-making and icing skills. Participants glamorize doughy creations in the hands-on Basic Cake Decorating 1 class, which highlights tips and tricks for icing desserts with roses, borders, and writing. During One Dough Many Breads, class members learn to mediate scuffles between English muffins and French baguettes in their kitchen before whipping up gourmet breads such as farmhouse white, cinnamon, and raisin-pecan.
Each of All in the Icing’s 3.5-hour classes equip students with the high-quality ingredients they need to bake the night away. At the end of sessions, participants head home with their tasty works to share with family or break into tiny pieces to add to crumb collections. Guests can also bring their favorite libation from home to take sips in between baking.
