Ever burned a cake? Well, we have. And we're not even going to attempt making more complicated confections, like the Parisian macaron, unless every bakery in Phoenix shuts their doors.

Like, for example, Pastry Chef Linda Schneider of 21 Cakes in Scottsdale. This month and next, she will host a series of baking and cake-decorating classes.
During a three-hour Cake Baking and Decorating class, guests will learn the basics of how to create a delicious and beautiful cake. At the end of the hands-on experience, they also will walk away with their very own six-inch dinner cake to take home and show off to friends. For those over 21, the class will include a a glass of wine.
As a second option for more ambitious bakers, 21 Cakes also will host a macaron class. Though the French pastries usually require two days to make, the class offers a shortened process so that attendees will have plenty to show for their hours of learning.
The Cake Baking and Decorating class will be offered twice: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, and 1 p.m. Sunday, May 5.
