We'll spend time practicing with different piping tips to make shells, rosettes, roses, vines, leaves, and letters on a cake or any dessert.Practice makes perfect so you’ll get plenty of that.Finally, you'll have time to let your creativity flow as you put all that practice to work by decorating your cake.

Learn Zingerman's Bakehouse's traditional French baguette recipe in one of our best classes for new bakers. Most commercial bread labeled “baguette” bears no resemblance to the traditional French bread that Parisian bakers first developed around 1920. When a law went into effect forbidding them from starting to work before 4 am, they began baking the long thin loaves that are synonymous with French baking today. We teach you to make the traditional French baguette recipe—starting with a flavorful poolish, hand-rolling your dough, and ending with a very crisp crust surrounding a soft, holey interior.Imagine serving breakfast to out-of-town guests and bringing out a perfect baguette that they swear must have been airlifted from Paris.

You'll leave BAKE! with our French baguette recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, four French baguettes you made in class, dough to bake later, and great coupons.
