Be part of something incredible

We’re looking for instructors on topics around website and social media growth, business development, starting and growing a bakery (either a storefront or home-based), food photography and videography, teaching classes, and publishing cookbooks. We are also looking for instructors on a wide range of baking topics including (but not limited to) pie art, cake decorating, cookie decorating, cake pops, pastries, donuts, breads, and chocolate.

Instructors teach a 1, 1.5, or 2 hour virtual class at our events held in the spring and fall. Baking classes are hands-on and you would be expected to provide a recipe and materials list well in advance of the class.

We are also looking for experts of the month for our Baker Bosses membership group. Our experts spend a whole month in our group answering questions around their topic for 10+ minutes a day. They also speak at the monthly member mixer that month.
