There were 4 people to a table. We shared a table with a father daughter team, who I don't think were all that enthused to be there, can't figure out why they were.

We started off making the caramel for the cappuccino caramel creme brulee.

After a quick pass with the blow torch, and it's yummy too. 

We were too advanced for that class but we made four great desserts and had a barrel of fun doing it.

Now we are on the lookout for a pie making class. 

 

And that's that.
