What’s piping you ask? It’s that cone-shaped bag you squeeze frosting or icing out of to decorate cakes and cookies. The point of the piping can have a variety of tips to give you different decorating effects. Think of them as paint brushes to create works of culinary art…that you can eat!

No Experience Required

Don’t worry about your decoration skills or lack thereof. This class is for beginners and those with a moderate amount of experince. Keep the pre-made cake mix and store-bought frosting at home though, we make all of our cakes from scratch!
