HOW MUCH ARE CLASS FEES?

Fees range between $45 and $60 per person per class, and are determined after a preliminary discussion via phone or email. Call 860-321-7496 or write to Bonnie@CakesByWildflour.com. What's more, you get to bring home the boxed cake or cupcakes that you create in class!

Payments must be made by check or money order. (Sorry—no cash, credit or debit cards. Never send cash through the mail.) All payments are due two weeks prior to the scheduled class date.

WHAT CLASSES ARE OFFERED, AND WHEN ARE THEY HELD?

Below is a list of classes that are available—and you can always suggest one of your own. Call Bonnie at 860-321-7496 or send an email to Bonnie@CakesbyWildflour.com to discuss the days and times that will work both for you and for Wildflour. You can suggest any weekday or weeknight. Classes run about three hours, and there can be between one and six participants per class. Once your class is scheduled, a separate discussion (via email or phone) will confirm whether there are any material requirements for which you will be responsible. Please note, though, that Wildflour provides most materials for most classes.

Impress your mom (or husband, for that matter) by using Russian tips and other special petal tips to create awesome cupcakes with an array of buttercream blooms.
