The best part was watching Christine explain, in detail, how to create unique desserts based on memories. Seeing how she tweaks and tweaks until she gets the correct flavor profile. Baking alongside her was so much fun.

The content was very detailed and well explained. I also really liked seeing that Christina really set everything up in front of us and even saw some common mistakes that happen live, and I think that's really positive as it's more genuine content.

Overall, I’ve learned a TON! The best part is knowing that if there’s a cookie I’m craving, I can figure out my own way. I learned the why and the how.

Learning the reasons why things are done in a certain way like flour to sugar/butter ratios, length of mixing times, etc. That will help in my long term understanding and baking.
