Your Instructor

Anne Yorks

Anne Yorks left the “real world” in 2007 to be a stay-at-home mom and to pursue her dream of starting her own bakery. As a self-taught baker, she spent years decorating cookies and tweaking her recipes for loved ones’ weddings, parties, baby showers and beyond. All that practice finally paid off when she opened the successful Flour Box Bakery in her hometown of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.
