I took the Cupcake class and my cupcakes from here on out will never be the same!! Chef Eric is an outstanding instructor. There were young girls in the class with their parent and he was so patient with them which speaks volumes for Chef Eric and his personality. The tips alone that I picked up in this class added even more value to the class. Who knew I was measuring flour incorrectly all these years! I will be signing up for both his Master Baking/Pastry Class and his Master Chef Class.
Chef Eric is so friendly and great with the kids. My 9 year old daughter couldn’t wait to go back to class the next day.
