    My daughter and I will be vacationing at Disney for Mother’s Day. We wanted to do the Cake Decorating at Amorette’s Patisserie but they are only booking through mid-April. Do you know when they will open the schedule and do we tip the instructors?

    Hello, Lynette! Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Planning a fun activity with your daughter would be the icing on the cake on any Mother's Day!

    The Cake Decorating Experience at Amorette's Patisserie has been on my Disney Bucket List ever since my friend, Leslie, showed me her photos from her girls' weekend last year. The class is small — only 14 students at a time — and begins at 8:45 AM, before most of the stores in Disney Springs are open. Even though the classes are offered several times a week, they have been extremely popular, so you are a "smart cookie" to think about making reservations now.  I called Disney Dining, and they weren't sure when the dates in May would be released, but it seems to me that they release multiple months at a time, in a block. My suggestion would be to check the Walt Disney World website a few times a week. You can also call Amorette's directly to see if they'll be offering a class during your visit. Their number is (407) 934-3500, but as Leslie referenced in her answer, you may need to leave a message. 

    Although tipping is not expected, it is always appreciated if you feel that you've received exceptional service during the experience (Leslie did not recall seeing other guests tipping when she was there). One thing I am sure of, however, is that you and your daughter will have a memorable and unique experience. You'll start the morning with beverages (mimosas and Bellinis for guests 21-and-over), before learning how the pastry artists here seamlessly blend artistry and storytelling in cake design. The key to making their showstopping cakes is that beautiful glossy red finish called glaçage (French for "frosting"), also known as "mirror glaze." At the end of the class, you'll get a circular box to store your cake. The cakes do need to be refrigerated, but Amorette's Patisserie will also be happy to hold onto it for pick up later in the day so that you can explore Disney Springs.

    I hope that getting your reservation is a piece of cake, Lynette! If you have any other questions, remember we're all ears!
