About our Classes

For class inquiries, the best way to contact us is by email at info@duchessatelier.com. You may also call us at (780) 758-1162 but because we're often in class or in the kitchen, we may not be available.

Duchess Atelier is NOT located at the Bake Shop on 124th Street. Our teaching kitchen is located on the north side of Holland Plaza at 10936–119th Street. Please use the Duchess Atelier door for classes. There is ample parking in front of Atelier and on 119th and 120th streets.

We offer a variety of hands-on classes on baking topics including Macarons, Pies, Tarts, Cakes, Pâte à Choux, Seasonal/Holiday Desserts, Cookie Decorating, and more.

Our teachers come with a wide range of baking knowledge. Whether they have worked in a professional kitchen or are avid bakers in their own kitchens at home. We believe that all our teachers bring a different and diverse approach to baking that will help students have fun and gain confidence in their baking knowledge.

Our classes are single-session and are typically three to four hours in length. The majority of our classes are hands-on, so please come prepared to bake! Please note that classes can run around 15 minutes over or under the allotted time. Our hands-on classes can accommodate up to 12-16 people.

Our standard classes are designed to accommodate any baking level. We will do our best to make the class a success for you no matter your skill level. On occasion we also offer advanced-level classes for students who have already taken the basic-level class in a given topic.

Yes! Private classes are now available.

Gather your colleagues, friends or family and enjoy a private class at Duchess Atelier. Our teachers will guide your group (up to 12 people) through a fun afternoon or evening of hands-on baking!

Class options (three hours each):

  • Doughnuts
  • Pie Basics
  • Pâte à Choux
  • Duke Cake
  • Bake Shop Favourites
  • Lemon Meringue Cake

The cost per class is $1950 +GST regardless of if you have 5 or 12 people.

Our schedule is made up to 2 months in advance. We cannot always get a class scheduled on short notice.

Please reach out to info@duchesatelier.com for more information and for available dates.

Children ages 8-13 are welcome to attend classes with an adult. Both adult and child must have their own ticket.

Children 14 and up can attend on their own without an adult.

Please be mindful that if your child comes alone, they will be paired with someone else in the class.

We are currently working on more classes specifically geared towards kids. Be sure to sign up for email notifications to keep up to date with any announcements regarding kids class. The Baking - Beginners class is a great class to get your kids comfortable in the kitchen and learn how to scale and read their own recipes.

We are happy to return to our original ticket purchasing set up! Tickets are sold individually per person. If you sign up for two tickets, you and your partner will be paired up together. If you sign up for one ticket, you will be paired up with someone who is also coming on their own. If there are three people in a group, two will be paired together and the third person will be paired up with someone from another party.

Registration & Attending Class

We release new classes every two months via our website. To be notified when our next class launch is, please sign up for our newsletter by filling out the form at the bottom of this page. You will receive an email a few days before classes are released, with the full class schedule, class descriptions, and prices.

We release a new batch of classes every three or four months, for purchase exclusively through our website. We currently run seven or eight classes per week, some on evenings and weekends and some during weekdays, and are always striving to offer more. To be notified when our next batch of classes will be released, please sign up for our newsletter by filling out the form at the very bottom of this page. You will then receive an email a week before classes are released, with the full class schedule, class descriptions, and prices.

On release day, if you need to make changes to your registration or cancel your purchase, please email us at info@duchessatelier.com or give us a call at (780) 758-1162 and we will try to remedy the situation as quickly as possible.

If you have a credit/digital gift card from the duchessbakeshop.com website that you would like to use to register for classes at duchessatelier.com please email us at info@duchessatelier.com with advance notice before a launch day so we can transfer your credit to the Atelier store.
If your credit (gift card) already states it is from Duchess Atelier, you will want to copy and paste that code into the gift card section at the end of checkout.

If you’re hoping to attend with friends, please note that we limit the purchase of tickets in a given class to 4 per group. This ensures that lots of people get the opportunity to register in our classes and allows for a dynamic class setting.

It is your responsibility to remember the date and time of the class you are registered in, and no credit will be issued should you fail to attend for that reason. This is a strict policy and no exceptions will be made. If you’re not sure when your class is, please contact us at info@duchessatelier.com and we can look it up for you.

You may cancel your registration in a class up to 48 hours in advance and credit will be issued towards another class. We don’t offer refunds on classes. To make changes to your registration prior to the 48-hour cutoff, please email us at info@duchessatelier.com. 

If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, or fail to attend a class, there will be no credit issued, and no make-up class offered. This is a strict policy and no exceptions will be made due to illness, weather, traffic, family difficulties etc.. A great deal of time and preparation goes into our classes and with very slim margins, we need as much time as possible to fill any vacant seats. Consider buying a ticket to a class in the same way that you would buying a ticket to a concert or an event: if you fail to show up, you cannot get credit back from the venue. Tickets are fully transferable, and we are always happy to welcome a friend or family member in your place.

For private bookings (buyouts): the time period to cancel a class and receive a credit is 14 days. We will not be able to offer a credit or a rescheduled class if cancelled within that time frame.

What a lovely gift idea! We have just added Atelier Gift Cards to the website. You will find important information to note on the Gift Cardpage before purchasing.

We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes for our hands-on classes. And for all our classes, please refrain from wearing perfumes or colognes as a courtesy to the other students in the class.

In exceptional circumstances classes may need to be cancelled. If this happens you will be offered a credit and a rescheduled class time. In addition, we reserve the right to change the class menu and instructor without prior notice.

If you are allergic or sensitive to particular ingredients, be aware that you may be required to handle all the ingredients used in the class, which may include dairy, nuts, flour, etc. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and recipe testing, our recipes for classes cannot be altered to accommodate food sensitivities and allergies. Allergy awareness is the responsibility of the student and not Duchess Atelier. Feel free to reach out at info@duchessatelier.com for information on the recipes and ingredients being used in class.
