This was a birthday present for my fiancee, she loves baking and creating a layer cake would add a new level to her baking. Chef Jean Yves exceeded all expections. He brings 46 years of experience where it's not just about the recipe and measurements but technique and feeling. He is truly a gem!

Good Experience. Loved the small size class- we were only 3. even though it was an observation class we got to do some stuff. Now need to try at home.

We arrived to make a basic layer cake, and we left with a spectacular dessert. It was fun to make, interesting, but a bit challenging with his French accent. Overall, an enjoyable cooking class!
