Directions and info about the space in Chicago:

John has run his workshop twice at SAW in Florida and is now bringing his warm, intelligent workshop to Chicago, immediately after CAKE.

Classes will run roughly 6 hours a day for each day. The first three days will focus on individual exercises, where the final two will be spent tying the exercises together and publishing an end-of-workshop zine.

Don’t miss this chance to learn from one of the greatest cartoonists in the country.

    Ever wonder what made you ‘get along’ with some people but not with others? What if you understood the secret and used it to influence who you ‘click’ with? Now you can. Read The Bridge: 14 Days to a Limitless Life. In fact, you can read the first 3 chapters free of charge.

      Thank you Yeni and Fred for rescuing me! I had inliialty chosen a baker I thought was real, and found out the WEEK BEFORE MY WEDDING!!!!!! I called Dream Day Cakes and was a wreck. I was hysterical and crying and having a meltdown. They saved me. They did my cake for me and the hotel approved them immediately. My family and guests loved the cake. I cant believe they made it for me so quickly and that it looked exactly like what i wanted. I was lucky and wish I chose them from the beginning. These are such good tips. Thank you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Jacqui B.
