Spun Sugar offers classes in the sweet arts from tempering chocolate to gum paste flowers, from making perfectly decorated cakes, cookies or cupcakes to delectable confections.
Spun Sugar believes that you must experience the process to learn fully, not just watch, so 99% of our classes are hands-on. Class sizes are kept small so that everyone gets ample attention from our instructors. Everyone always leaves with a box full of goodies, be it truffles, cheesecakes or a bouquet of gum paste flowers.
Spun Sugar's Retail Store on University Ave in Berkeley, CA. sells all the ingredients and supplies you need to recreate the projects you learn in class. From piping bags and decorating tips to pans, sprinkles to royal icing mix.
Our helpful, knowledgeable staff and instructors are always happy to answer your questions and guide you to the right tool or ingredient. If we don't have what you're looking for, we'll try to point you in the right direction. We love to bake and decorate and we want everyone to share in the joy of the art. In fact several of Spun Sugar’s staff and instructors have created award winning sugar pieces, come in and see our ribbons!

Class Registration and Policies: PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL CLASSES
Payment in full for all classes must be made at the time of registration (no exceptions).
You may register on line or by phone using a credit card or in person in our retail store with cash, check, or credit card. If paying by credit card, your card will be charged when you register.
Wait Lists: Space in each course is limited. You may request to be placed on the waiting list for a course that is full, and you will be notified if space becomes available or if additional courses are scheduled.
Cancellations: If you are signed up for a class, and don’t cancel (or notify us you are sending a replacement), within 72 hours (3 days) of the class start time, your fee is non-refundable. This policy is in fairness to our instructors, who perform prep work prior to classes requiring their time and the purchase of supplies to ensure you have a successful class experience. Students notifying Spun Sugar of their cancellation before the above noted time period will be refunded all paid registration in full using the same method they used to pay for the class, i.e. cash, check or credit card. Should a class be cancelled because of too few students, a full refund will be given. Classes not meeting minimum enrollment 48 hours in advance will be cancelled and you will be notified. In that case, your fee will be refunded to you, or transferred to another class. Spun Sugar will confirm your enrollment by phone or email a day or so prior to the class.
Gift Certificates: Gift certificates may be used to register for a class, please provide the gift certificate serial number when registering. The gift certificate must be surrendered when checking in on the day of the class.
Minimum Age: Unless a class is marked as child friendly (see below), the minimum age to enroll in a class is 12 years. If you are registering for a class that is designated as a "Parent & Child" class, in which case, just use one class slot and enter both names, e.g. "John Smith & Sally-Anne".
Children 7 and younger: Classes marked with an asterisk (*) are child friendly; however, children 7 years old and younger must be accompanied by a supervising adult who will also be a paying participant in the class.
