"This class was fantastic! I love that it is a business class mixed with a design class! As someone who works a full time job and runs a cake biz as well, the tips on pre-production and the concept of a line of simpler, "what you see is what you get" cakes are invaluable. It is a way I think will help me grow my business so I can start to scale back on my day job eventually. Chrissie is a great instructor. She comes across as knowledgeable and presents clearly. She was easy to follow and I would buy any class she teaches!"
