How long does the cupcake decorating class last and did you think it was worth the $17.50?

thanks for your help!

30-45 mins long. My daughter and wife had a great time. Came back with a Big Mac and fries cupcake as well as a chefs hat. Reserve it immediately when you get on board if you want to do it since they only do a few kids and a few adults and the demand is high. You can always cancel if your plans change and there was a stand by line for no shows. We have an 11 year old and had her do the adult class.

I got off the Oasis on the 24th. I did not take the classes, but happened to be passing buy the Cupcake Cupboard on 2 occasions when the classes where going on and watched for a few minutes. They looked like fun and adults and kids were all smiles!! How can you go wrong there?!

I did it on our April sailing. Loved it! We made the puppy cupcakes and also received chef hats. Not only fun, but very yummy!

You sign up in the Cupcake Cupboard, and I also advise going as soon as you get on the ship, it was mostly filled up by the time we got there at 2.

It's on the Oasis now but is being added to Freedom ships and I am sure will be on the Allure.

Did the class on the Oasis in January. Got apron, tote bag, and hat. I am probably the only one who cut her hand doing this. Don't think they give sharp knives anymore. I'd do the class again.

I took the class on Oasis a few weeks ago and enjoyed it but to let you know they no longer give out a giveaway of apron or hat. I asked about it and the woman running the class said they stopped it as they are trying to work out specifics.

They should really allow you to sign up before hand online like the specialty rests...I am dying to do this and am a total pre-planner so I would like to add this to my check list of things already filled out and ready!

I was just discussing this with my sister this morning! We are doing a back to back on Oasis in October and this is definitely on our MUST DO list! Does anyone have any recent feedback?

On the Oasis inaugural they gave us a t-shirt. Mine is pink with an outline of a big cupcake that sort of wraps around the side. On the back it says "Life is Sweet" and has the RC logo.

My wife and I did the class on the May 29th sailing of the Oasis. Signed up as soon as we got on board. Our class was all adults and we all had a blast! We made double stack burgers and fries. Looked great and tasted better! We got a tote bag, hat, apron and mixing spoon! Sign up early and enjoy!

I absolutely love cupcakes. I have some questions pls and thanks!
  • How much was the class?
  • Is there an adult class and a separate class for kids? I would prefer to do one with adults.
  • Do you get to take any cupcakes home?
  • Did you sign up on Day 1?
  • Did you take any pictures of the class/cupcakes? Would love to see.
Thanks!
