Miette Classes

I just saw that Miette, the lovely little bakery and candy store, is now offering cake and cookie decorating classes. I really want to take the cookie decorating class! Soon after I finished college and was in “the working world” I took a letterpress class. I was so excited about all the new things I had learned, I wouldn’t shut-up about it. It made me realize how happy I am when I’m learning new things. I try to take at least three or four new classes a year. What about you? Are you taking any good classes this summer?

ps: Speaking of classes one spot just opened up in my June letterpress class. The deadline is today so email me if you are interested.

    I just enrolled my son (3 1/2) in a Spanish class…and then found out that I take it with him. I am more excited than I probably should be. It is an emersion class where the teacher only speaks spanish. I am so excited to learn along with him. No other classes planned, but I'd love to find a cake decorating one!!

    I'm the same way (which is probably one of the reasons it took me so long to finally graduate because i kept changing majors to learn new things.) I'm taking a jewelry design class at the community college in the fall and I totally can't wait. Cake decorating looks like it would be fun too.

    Totally agree! So far this year I've taken swimming classes, a photography class, a Thai cooking class and Pilates reformer classes! I love learning new things!

    I'd love to go to a cake decorating class, that would be so much fun! I'm planning to take a patternmaking class this year and I would love to go to a letterpress class, I don't think we have anything like that in Australia.

    I totally agree with emersing oneself into learning something totally new.

    I wish I lived close enough to take your letter press class… that would be a fun learning experience.

    Holy cow, I'm in love with Miette and they way they design their cakes. Would love to take this class. And I'm with you. I'm a freak when I take sewing classes. It's all I can talk about. Love learning new skills. So fun.

    I just started my MBA and this is how I feel about my classes. Even though they are difficult, I love learning the new info and trying new things.

    I have decided after I graduate, I'm going to take classes to become a yoga instructor!

    Yay Natalie – I'm already a yoga teacher and I have to tell you it's super awesome (except for when it's not, but it usually is) ♥

    Also for me – I've been hoop-dancing for a couple months now and I'm learning to spin poi

    So lovely and fun! There's something to be said about absorbing, creating, and contributing beauty to the world! I am taking ASL, which is fantastic! I've only been enrolled two weeks but can already sign quite extensively. It's such an artistic language.

    i really want to take the decorating classes at Miette. They sound ridiculously good!

    I'm taking a screen printing & a typography class this summer. I'm half way done & I'm loving them! I, like you, don't shut up about all the things I'm learning & am probably driving my family crazy.

    When a good friend was losing her hearing, we enrolled in an American Sign Language class. I also took ballroom dancing with my husband….nobody would mistake us for Derek & Nicole. I'd like to find an adult Tap class (no recitals please!

    Oh I LOVE Miette, but had no idea they offered classes! I can't wait to try it out. It could be dangerous though, I can see myself baking up a storm afterward.
