Classes

Sweet Lucy’s Bakeshop is expanding!
YOU can help make a new dedicated space for classes a reality. We still have a LONG way to go to maximize our grant opportunity, but we are well underway, thanks to our amazing community! Please consider donating to our crowdfunding campaign, so we can be awarded a 100% match from MGCC (Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation)! We have some pretty cool rewards, so please check them out! All of the money we raise will go directly to building an addition on our shop to house our cooking school! I am so grateful for all of you who have already donated and spread the word!

See below for a taste of possible future offerings:
