Did you know that Pink Pineapple offers baking and cake decorating classes? Baking is a delicious hobby, and with the right instruction, it may be easier than you think…

“I once took a drawing course while attending school in England. The class was titled ‘You think you can’t draw, but you can.’ It was so true. All I needed was a little guidance. It’s the same way with baking and cake decorating. All you need is someone to guide you…” – Aura, Pastry Chef

We started offering classes last fall, and they occur monthly. Each class covers a seasonal baking or decorating topic, so that attendees can come again and again and always learn something new…

I absolutely love the classes you offer at Pink Pineapple. Thank you for always welcoming my daughter and I and making us feel right at home. If you are debating on whether to get a ticket or not, DO IT!!!! It’s worth it for sure. Chef Aura is professionally trained, and she has taught me many techniques… We’ve learned how to do cake pops, ice and decorate cakes, and make a fondant penguin.  Great tips and tricks. There are plenty more classes to come!!! I have a great time at Pink Pineapple Academy, and I know you will too!!!!!
