    Excellent class! I'd love to have a second class on fillings for chocolate.

    Presenter was well prepared and delivered useful and interesting knowledge in a clear and efficient manner. This was an excellent idea for a class.

    FYI, there's an Asian Festival parade planned for Saturday on 4th St. in front of the shop starting at 11am. Plan some extra time to find parking. Info on the event:

    I am so excited the class is almost here and I just finished my presentation and notes. I am going to post them here for anyone who would like to look at them early. I will post my presentation as well but after the class. I will also have a copy of notes for everyone at the class. I think the class will be about 2 hours long or so depending on how long I talk and how long we take to dip. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

    I am a maybe. I need to make sure we're clear that day, but I'd love to attend. I just got into candy making and chocolate pouring last year.
