Instructor, Detra Denay Davis insist this is the perfect course for anyone who loves to bake and would like to operate a bakery from home before securing a brick and mortar storefront. Previous students have included grandmothers with super delicious pound cakes, and personal chefs who wanted to offer additional products to boost their bottom line. “We had a professional bread baker from South America, a retiree who bakes using non-traditional sweeteners and a teen who is destined to be the next Mrs. Fields. Bakers come from all walks of life.”
Home-based bakers are the staple of American life. These are the men and women who appreciate great food and want to share their love of home-made baked goods with the public.
