Wide Awake Bakery

If you've tried your own baked goods from home and just haven't gotten the measurements or proper consistency for a great finished product, it's time to visit Wide Awake Bakery for a baking class. Thanks to their partnership with the Organic Growers Research and Information Sharing Network, Wide Awake has baking classes throughout the year.

Let's take a closer look at some of the unique class offerings.
