About This Class

Erin McKenna is the founder and baker at Erin McKenna's Bakery, the country's leading gluten-free, vegan, kosher bakery in NYC's Lower East Side. Join her for this delectable 25-minute class on baking the perfect cake with substitutions to fit any diet!

Whether you choose health or decadence, this short and fun class takes you behind the counter of Erin's bakery, going where the magic happens. Erin breaks down two classic cake recipes — both signature to her bakery — into their essential ratios and combinations. She talks through each ingredient, explains substitutions, and gives tips and tricks to make sure your cake tastes good and bakes well.

By the end, you'll not only understand the elements of a perfect cake, but also be able to get creative and customize your own recipe, making your cake in any style you want.
