Intro to Baking

Students learn the basic concepts, skills and techniques of baking. Emphasis is placed on identification of products, weights and measures. Our classes cover topics of breads, cakes, pies, puddings and desserts. This introductory class will expose your student to the joys of baking in a fun and lively setting. Topics to be studied but not limited to are as follows: making homemade rolls and how yeast works, how to make pastry with butter and uses both sweet & savory, frosting options, how to work with Puff Pastry and so much more. This class is for students who are able to handle standing during the entire class. If your student is unable to exercise this type of control, please consider waiting another year to enroll in this class. We will include baking competitions during our final weeks as we practice skills learned in class. **This class is not suitable for students with food allergies!**
