Our standard classes are designed to accommodate any baking level. We will do our best to make the class a success for you no matter your skill level. Some classes build on other classes and should therefore be taken in sequence. 

At this time we do not offer classes that are specifically geared towards children other than our March break and Summer camps. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult (1 adult per child), and we generally recommend a minimum age of 10 years old for even our simplest classes. Adults attending with their children must also register in the class.

Our current classes are listed on our website and can be booked online.

Payment in full is required at the time of registration. Unfortunately, there will be no refunds on classes. 

You may cancel your registration in a class up to 48 hours in advance and credit will be issued towards another class.  

If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, or fail to attend a class, there will be no credit issued, and no make-up class offered. This is a strict policy and no exceptions will be made due to illness, weather, traffic, family difficulties etc...  A great deal of time and preparation goes into our classes and with very slim margins, we need as much time as possible to try and fill any vacant seats.  Consider buying a ticket to a class in the same way that you would buying a ticket to a concert or an event. If you failed to show up to an event you had purchased a ticket to, you cannot get credit back from the venue. Please think of our classes in the same way! Tickets are fully transferable and we are always happy to welcome a friend or family member in your place. 

It is the student's responsibility to remember the date and time of the class they are registered in, and no credit will be issued should they fail to attend for that reason. This is a strict policy and no exceptions will be made. 

To make changes to your registration prior to the 48 hour cut-off, please email us at jeanette@jeanettescakes.com or call (289) 400-5116.

In exceptional circumstances classes may need to be cancelled. We also require a minimum of 4 participants to host the class.  If this happens you will be offered a credit towards another class. In addition, we reserve the right to change the class menu and instructor without prior notice.

If you are allergic or sensitive to particular ingredients, be aware that you may be required to handle all the ingredients used in the class, which may include dairy, gluten, eggs, etc. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and recipe testing, our recipes for classes cannot be altered to accommodate food sensitivities and allergies. Please be aware and familiarize yourself of common allergies found in bakery settings to keep yourself safe.
