Class experience

Intermediate - Advanced Level
6 lessons//6 Weeks
 Week 1
Lesson 1
Learners will work through a guided video lesson to bake a basic vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. They are free to add their own different flavorings if desired. They will also be instructed on basic frosting equipment and techniques.
 Week 2
Lesson 2
Our video lesson this week will focus on tuiles . We will learn about the proper way to mix, shape, and bake the thin, crisp cookies, with options to add different flavorings such as citrus zest.
 Week 3
Lesson 3
We will tackle the scary (but easier than you'd think) French baguette. Learners will bake along with a video and learn the importance of weighing ingredients, how to gently handle and shape the bread dough, and the French technique of baking in a steamy oven.
 Week 4
Lesson 4
Dessert week will contain a video lesson about meringue cookies. Meringue is an intimidating bake for some, but learners will see how simple it can be and have fun with their designs as they bake!
 Week 5
Lesson 5
We'll take a trip to the savory side by making meat pies. Learners will bake along with me in a video as they learn how to make a pie crust, techniques to avoid overfilling their pies, and how to avoid the infamous "soggy bottom." (Learners can use any filling they would like, including vegetarian.)
 Week 6
Lesson 6
We saved the scariest for last! This week's signature challenge will be eclairs. The video lesson will teach learners how to make and pipe choux pastry, chocolate ganache, and pastry cream.
Learners will be able to bake a variety of homemade treats.
Learners will be able to put their own creative spin on recipes.
Homework Offered
Learners will be expected to complete three baking challenges every week. These bakes vary widely in times, with the longest being French bread, which will take several hours for proofing and rising.
