Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn to make more advanced dessert creations using different crusts and cooking methods.
I have been baking for over 30 years and specialize in creating delicious pies, breads, and cookies. I have provided professional-grade desserts, pies and cake pops for many birthdays, graduations, baby/wedding showers, and community celebrations. 

I am a graduate of the University of California at San Diego with a degree in Political Science. My teaching experience includes homeschooling my own two children for 18 years. I have also taught ESL online for the past 1 1/2 years.
Fun fact about me: I began baking on my own as a latch-key kid in the 80's. Many of my first attempts were completely inedible!
Now, after many years of experience and perfecting my craft, I'm excited to share my passion for baking with young learners! 
Students are encouraged to upload a picture of their finished recipe to the classroom each week. Starting in Week 2, students should come to class prepared to discuss any successes/challenges with the previous week's recipe.
Exact recipes and ingredient quantities will be provided upon enrollment. Basic recipe ingredients needed are: flour, white sugar, brown sugar, butter, vegetable oil, eggs, cinnamon, cocoa powder, baking chocolate, fresh or dried fruit, cream cheese, molasses Kitchen equipment required: stand or handheld electric mixer handheld pastry cutter/blender*** mixing bowls measuring cups/spoons rubber spatula or spoon whisk rolling pin cooking spray cooling rack parchment paper (optional) 13x9 baking pan Pie pan Muffin/cupcake pan 8 or 9 inch round cake pan
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Limited parental supervision is required for this class since we will be using the oven, stovetop, microwave, sharp cutting utensils, and other kitchen appliances.
Allergy Disclaimer: Most recipes contain gluten and many contain dairy or nuts. 

Attendance Reminder: Please note that Outschool policy is that all students on camera and participating in class must be enrolled in the class. If any other learners are present on camera or participating I will have to remove all learners from the classroom until only the learner(s) enrolled are present. These policies are put in place by Outschool for the safety of all learners. Thank you for your cooperation!
Recipes provided by instructor on a weekly basis upon enrollment.
