I put out an Instagram poll and got good feedback inquiring me to host a buttercream basics class. I'd teach a drip cake and how to achieve sharp edges. I'd include ready made 6" cake layers, light snacks, and decorating supplies (colors, sprinkles, candy melts). I can price out supplies but I'm not sure how to charge for the actual teaching and skills. The 6" cake they'll learn is valued at $40-$50. Any input is appreciated!!

Figure how much time the class will be   Say it will last 1 hour but then there’s cleanup so tack on another 1/2hr     I’d say that class is going to cost $75!   Do you think there’s many who would pay that much for 1 class?

No one else have any ideas for her?   Someone must have taught classes and can offer a suggestion
