Cake Classes at We Olive for Spring 2020

CLICK HERE for registration

Spring Dates are here! I am so excited to add a couple new designs and repeat some popular ones from prior classes. 2020 Cake Class and Wine Night Events are going to be incredibly fun! Keep in mind that I am loading classes heavy this Spring and then offering only 3 Holiday themed classes over the Fall/Winter due to vacations and other fun family things. Whatever design or date is catching your eye, sign up for these Spring offerings now.

Also, we are adding kids classes this year! Instead of teaching in the wine bar and food area, we are allowed, “allowed” hi Utah, to teach on the front on the retail side. Still working out some details, but think kids cake camp, drop them off and go shopping, or sit at the wine bar and watch your kids have a great time frosting and caking! The experience is so special for them, they learn and build on new skills, and if they bring a friend or two, it’s just a fun time. I’ll do a youth and teen class to start and then see how demand goes.

Dates at a glance: Remember you must be age 21 or over, bring I.D. Food is included.

If this is your first time to a class and need more information, please read the Frequently Asked Questions below the image at the bottom.


Thank you again to all of YOU who have made this possible, for keeping me on my toes in class, making them fun and entertaining and supporting so many of us that put this together, not just myself but local bakery City Cakes (and keeping their employees busy), We Olive and Wine Bar- the staff is seriously on top of it, and  the local supply stores I get cake boxes and aprons and other supplies (no amazon ordering here). It takes a village and you guys have made it all amazing! Here’s to 2020! Can’t wait to see you in class!

I’ve provided a lovely FAQ if you had never read them before, or need to waste an hour at work looking like your reading something more important…

The FAQ Section

What Now?

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.
