Milly’s will continue to observe best practice with regards to health and safety, and hygiene protocols. You will also be able to ‘check in’ using your New Zealand Covid Tracer App. Please note, in order to have the best learning experience, our classes are very ‘hands-on’ and we often require students to gather together to observe demonstrations and to share resources plus your tutor will circulate around the class to provide individual tuition. There will be some close contact during these instances. If you have questions about this please do contact the cook school and talk to Sharyn about your concerns:

Course Location: 
All our decorating classes are held in our Cake Decorating school at 20 Heather Street, Parnell, Auckland 1010.

For our weekend express classes your price includes enough pre-made icing to cover a 6 or 7 inch cake and 6 cupcakes.

We email you approx 1week before the first class, with a list of what you will need to bring with you on which days please keep an eye out for this email as they are often re-directed by people's spam filters. For classes that are not weekend express you will also need to make and bring your icing.
