CLASS REVIEWS


Thanks from Oxfordshire England
Hi Lori, I write to thank you for the Cookie Decorating Course that my daughter and I attended at your shop.  We thoroughly enjoyed the variety of materials, techniques and happy atmosphere in the classroom.  When I returned to Oxfordshire, England I sat opened the cookie bag and, with a nice cup of tea, experienced yet again the 'taste of..... cookie.... Chicago'. 

Yours sincerely,
Catherine Humphreys


Hi Lori,  I just wanted to thank you for the "private" lesson in candymaking last night. My husband started eating the chocolate right away!  And people at work have already started making requests for different shapes. Also, I am so excited that I will actually be able to make cool cakes with good tasting fondant!! I will definitely stop in on a weekend when I have more time to browse and plan my next confection.

Thanks again,
SR. Chicago


Hi Lori,

My niece and I took the cupcake class with you this past Saturday.  We had such a great time.  I don't think my niece expected to learn so much.  She loves art and I wanted to show her to another fun way to be creative.  So, thank you so much for the wonderful class.  Also thank you for the great advice on fondant and cake filling.  I felt like I walked away knowing so much more.  It was very inspiring.  You and your family are so nice.  It was such a comfortable atomosphere and that made it easy to be creative.  I will definitely be back to take classes and shop.  I'll be sure to send you some pictures of the cookies and cakes I'll be making.

Thanks again,

Nancy M.

"Lori, I had a wonderful time at the cake class today, and my husband was very impressed with my decorations! 
He couldn't believe I learned all that in one class."

JP, Chicago


Katie and I wanted to thank you again for your assistance on Saturday; we both very much enjoyed learning from you. 

Thank you,
