Take Your Daughter to Baking Class at Abigail Academy June 30
No boys are allowed at the Girls’ Baking Class at Abigail Academy this June. This class is just for girls aged 6 to 12 so they can socialize, have fun and be themselves. They’ll also learn a little chemistry here, because essentially that’s what baking is, and have the chance to make something with their own hands.
Where Girls Bake
The theme for this class is cakes and cookies. Girls will get the chance to do the baking themselves, and they’ll learn about food safety and general safety tips while in the kitchen. The girls are the ones in charge, because this is meant to be an empowering experience for them. Class lasts from 5 to 7:30 pm. The price per participant is $41. That covers all the ingredients and supplies they’ll use in class, plus dinner.
Abigail Academy is at 11904 Shelbyville Road in Louisville’s East End. That’s right outside the Anchorage neighborhood. While your daughter is baking, go see what’s cooking in Anchorage.
All Aboard for Anchorage
Anchorage is the perfect place to go to escape the summer heat. The thick tree cover here helps cast the whole neighborhood in shade, noticeably cooling the winding streets. Despite the name, there's very little water in the neighborhood -- unless swimming pools count. What this neighborhood does have is rolling hills, historic architecture and some of the city's most-coveted real estate.
The homes in Anchorage are truly eye-popping, stunning estate-like homes sitting on big lawns. The large, luxurious homes in Anchorage are separated by big trees, rolling hills and winding streets. Space and nature help create privacy for all the families who live here. Because all the homes in Anchorage were custom-built, they range across all styles of architecture. You can find everything here, from that incredible sprawling ranch house to that gorgeous Colonial-inspired two-story you've been dreaming of.
Since you have the evening free to explore, maybe you'll swing by the golf course in the neighborhood or take a look at the charming historic district. There's a pub if you want to grab a bite to eat, and a two-mile walking trail if you’d rather enjoy some scenic exercise. You may notice the schools while you're in the neighborhood. Anchorage even has its own independent school district with its own superintendent.
This neighborhood has been home to recording artists, film stars and CEOs, including some of Louisville's most famous residents. This summer, you'll discover lots of reasons why you'll want this neighborhood to be your home, too.
