Event Overview

Are any of these you?

  • I love to cook but I can’t bake…

  • The only baking I ever do is from a box mix…

  • Baking is too precise and I like to improvise in the kitchen…

  • I never understand what baking recipes are saying…

  • Every time I try to bake something it never turns out like the pictures…

If you answered yes, I Can’t: Bake – Fundamentals is for you.

I Can’t: Bake is part of Mac & Cheese Productions' I Can't series, where adults state they're unable to do something, they try it with a bunch of other adults who also "can't," and everyone proves themselves wrong and not only does the thing, but enjoys it and says, "That wasn't so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What's next?!" Past I Can'ts have included yoga, improv, find love, draw, have a dog, adult my money, organize my home, ask for money, put on makeup, and buy a home.

Workshop Details

This workshop will be led by Kristin “Baker Bettie” Hoffman.

When Kristin was first learning how to bake, tackling a new recipe was very intimidating. Now, 10 years later, she has gone to culinary school, worked as a private chef, and built a popular baking resource website geared toward simplifying baking for others.

In this workshop, Kristin will let you in on all of the most important lessons she learned in culinary school to approach new recipes with success. She will help you understand the most common baking terminology, as well as several mixing methods that can be used for a large variety of recipes. Additionally, she will walk you through master recipes that will build your confidence to improvise with your baking. You will leave with approachable recipes, detailed explanations, and the confidence to start baking at home!
