Testimonial
Dear Dallas,
Thank you for your help in planning a great fun night out for moms & sons. I wanted to try one of your classes for a special event and keep the cost reasonable. I had not seen on your list of classes one that fit. When I reached out to you, you had a wonderful suggestion and made the class logistics so easy. Our class was a “Moms and Sons Private Chocolate Cooking Class” The young men had loads of fun and really engaged in the chocolate project. The moms had fun with each other and connecting with our boys. The location, Dawn’s Candy & Cake was so agreeable to me bringing a picnic dinner. Their flexibility and friendliness along with the skills they had to teach us made for a really fun night.Warmly,
Kristine Shields
