Last time you heard from me I was unsure of the continuation of my Cake Classes, largely in part because my family was about to relocate several counties over, almost Idaho (omg). but the Universe felt how disheartened I was, and said ‘no girl, I got you!’ and, now, we are staying local, woohoo!
I’m partnering up with We Olive and Wine Bar Salt Lake City for a Holiday Season Extravaganza!
I’m teaching 5, yes 5! Holiday themed cake decorating classes from Halloween to New Year’s Eve.
Unlike my other classes, there is no progressive course for these dates, just pick your theme and show up for some laughs, food, and so much fun.
P.S. the fancy watercolor renditions of my cake design are done by the sweetest soul, Elizabeth who owns Oh, Capri Studio! She does custom commissions and you won’t regret it!
All the class registrations can be found on the Ticketing Platform, Event Bee
If you are like “hey, what is this cake class and wine night?” I’ve got you covered!
I’ve provided a lovely FAQ and links to photos of past classes
The FAQ Section
Registration is available for each class. Watch the announcements through our Partners and on my Instagram @muylymillerco, facebook Muyly Miller Co. and this website, muylymillerco.com Also catch me on KUTV’s Fresh Living ( September and November ) promoting the classes and some quick decorating lessons!
Do I need to come with experience?
Absolutely Not! My cake designs are made so that beginners can easily follow my lead, and advanced decorators can add their own flair- it is for all skill levels.
What Am I Getting?
This concept of decorating cakes while sipping chardonnay popped up in my head one weekend when I realized that, heck, there are a lot of people out there that LOVE to decorate cakes, but have no reason to really decorate a cake. I am giving them a reason- WINE. Just kidding. No the idea is to get together with your pals, socialize, and have a great evening getting creative, learning, eating, and laughing.
For the cost of your registration you are getting:
Full access to the wine bar. Drinks are not included in your registration price- I am not forcing anyone to consume alcohol, so you will need to just bring some extra funds for the drink(s) of your choice, alcoholic or not.
YOU DO GET FOOD! Your attendance gets you yummy food! Appetizers and small bites are included with your registration cost, it supports the cook in the back cause the bar tender shouldn’t have all the fun!?
Supplies are provided- you don’t need to worry about bringing an apron or an offset spatula or a #9 wilton tip. I got ya covered, and you don’t even need to take any of it home- cause honestly, I know you will forget about it and never use that #9 wilton tip again. So come with an open mind and eagerness to learn!
THE CAKE- you take home your own decorated cake,plus any leftover ingredients! YEAH!
Fun, Fun, Fun! I would like to think I am a fun girl, I mean I did come up with this concept. We will have full instruction with observation, music and maybe some story telling that could make you blush. No promises.
Where are the ingredients sourced?
All the cakes will be coming from City Cakes. They are vegan, but we are not doing vegan toppings, icing, etc. frosting, fillings, and embellishments will be sourced from various local markets and sometimes from my own kitchen. Any fillings or frosting made for sale in my kitchen will be provided a recipe and labeled in accordance to the standards of the Utah Department of Food & Agriculture.
Is my registration refundable?
No, unfortunately they are non refundable registrations. Reason being is that I purchase the amount of supplies needed based upon the number of registrations that come in, I buy them ahead of time and if I had to refund anything, I would lose out on the cost of supplies, time, and a seat that could have been filled. Understandable, right? Registration is not transferable, nor are rain checks allowed.
Why did you choose We Olive & Wine Bar?
Honestly- cause they freakin’ rock! I am a huuuge foodie, I am obsessed with quality ingredients and they simply provide the best sourced selection of oils and vinegars around. Plus they have a wine bar that could accommodate this class, a fringe benefit. For all the attendees the night of the class, they are passing on a 10% discount to their products on the retail side, yet another fringe benefit- woot!
What is the cost for the class?
Each class consumes a different amount of supplies. The cost is reflective of the amount that is needed for your cake. The range for classes will be from $65-$70 depending on the design and supplies needed.
Why are the cakes illustrations on your flyer?
The cakes are illustrated because I haven’t made them yet. I will be doing an IGTV introduction class with real cakes for some of the designs as it approaches the class date. Make sure to catch those on @muylymillerco on Instagram.
Are you a classically trained pastry chef?
No I am not, and boy do I bow in respect to those that are. I am a self-taught baker, a hobbyist, an overachiever who thought this idea of cake decorating inside a wine bar would be bad ass. Though I am not classically trained, I am humbled every time someone asks me to make them a cake for a special occasion, it validates my talent as a baker. I do not bake for a living though- I have an abundant amount of respect for those who do it, it takes a lot of time, planning, discipline, and panache.
